Let's do some shopping, shall we?


My friend Stephanie turned me on to this totally cute site for clothes. Dear men- this is where you can turn away in disgust. We're shopping in this post! Okay ladies...close your eyes. Lets pretend we're in a high end store, with our shoes off and our glasses of champagne in our hands. They even closed the store for us so we could shop in private! Got it? Okay, here we go!

Go check out http://www.unique-vintage.com/ . There are so many pieces within this site that are good enough to buy. The best part? They're vintage inspired, but not technically vintage. Which means they're new....they aren't old dresses that have been worn by who knows who. Not that there's anything wrong with that!



I don't know if you've noticed, but the vintage look is pretty popular. Just take a look around the blogs and you'll see pictures of vintage women all over the place. Now, although a lot of people like the look, most wouldn't have the balls to actually wear the look. For example, would you go to the pool with this on? Yeah, I didn't think so. Me either. But the dresses are gorgeous...I would totally wear one to a company party.

I am a nut for 40s era anything. My family knows this- I used to do my housework to Big Band music. My husband would come home from work and give me a look that said "What the hell are you listening to?". Uhhh, Big Band, honey. Duhhh. My favorite Christmas collection is a 40s Christmas. Frank Sinatra and Bing Crosby singing the carols? It doesn't get any better than that. I love 40s inspired fashion, too.


So when Steph turned me on to this vintage clothing site, how could I turn away? Plus, I totally have the boobs now to pull these dresses off.... not that big boobs were a"thing" in the 40s, but a C cup suits every dress in my opinion, right?
Maybe you'll find something that you like in there, too.

I don't mind shopping... I DO mind shopping when she goes into a store, goes to a rack, looks at the rack, goes to rack #2, looks at rack #2, goes back to rack #1, goes back to rack #2, goes to rack #3, goes back to rack #1... Seriously how many times are you going to look at the same frakin' rack???? The clothes haven't changed!!!

But that being said... I actually enjoy it when she's trying on clothes because she's trying on things she likes... and when she's wearing things she likes she feels better about herself... and when she feels good about how she looks, she acts more confident about herself... and when she's acting confident about herself... well that's pretty sexy imnsho.

And I liked the first dress better than the 2nd... No don't ask me why, I don't know... I just do.

My friend emailed me a link to this site just last week and I was head over heals. Too funny.

I LOVE big band music; Bette Midler has some great tunes that I assume are big band and that I love. I also have a couple of outfits from the 40's (my hubby's grandma wore them back in the day). Not sure why I like the old days...maybe we are reincarnated?! :)
