The Dance of Threads and Findings

071012stripedblsblkpntsHello All…..holidays upon us. This beautiful set has sold, but it does tickle my fancy! Why oh why aren’t there more threads like this made today? I just sold the navy snow suit, and saying good bye to that sweetie will break my vintage heart. Simple threads sewn together in the most amazing way, zippers, buttons, cuffs, collars, all like goodies on an ice cream sundae, and can you just imagine the joy of the threads as they weave in and out, forming works of art, thrilling the wearer and all who gaze upon her? We are fortunate to enjoy and wear these works of art, for it is a rare language indeed that few enjoy. I do like the mishmash hippie look, slapped together from bits and pieces. Please do stop by Vintage Lucy and take a look…..we are ready to shoot and add new listings, and there are soo many new and unique looks for you to enjoy, every thread and garment finding is begging to be noticed especially this time of year, so smooth and sleek against the skin, delighting in your every movement, a true holiday present for you and you alone. Enjoy the spirit!

Vintage Weaving Hidden Waves and Hills

060115TangFDSmlAHello, dearest, most wonderful friends and vintage-loving customers. Just needed to let you know I am still at it, seeking, searching and filing away, steaming and doing photo shoots, ever readying to list new beauties for your enjoyment. I do not get here to my little vintage blog near enough, and I know that. I suppose it is hard for me to stop and write about the goings-on. Too busy making it happen to stop and write. This sweet dress has a drape that can be worn over the front neckline or the back, two fresh looks in one treasure. And…there are many new vintage ensembles, dresses, jackets, and tops listed. I am about to list some funky and very spunky 60s play dresses perfect to wear with tights, socks and boots or over pants and jeans. Stop back soon, to my work-of-love Vintage Lucy or to this blog, and I promise to try even very much harder to write here more often. Still I am sure you are all out there delighting the world with your vintage outfits, and creating so many openings for those hidden memories in every thread to find their way out into our world, to play about quite magically even when none of us have the slightest idea they are out there doing their tricks on our every day lives. Ha! What a circus we cause, with all of this unknown playful dreaminess weaving hidden waves and hills.
