I’ve been absentee for awhile due to my aunt asking me “Do you ever use Poshmark?” WHO KNEW that there was an easy outlet to get all my vintage treasures I rescue from the proverbial thrift pound back into the hands of people that really want them and actually DO fit in the dress.
Some of my earliest memories revolve around reading my mother’s Vogue subscription, and I spent hours upon hours as a little girl digesting the Italian names and types of fabrics and silhouettes. I have a few vintage dresses that I have carried with me for decades now- a gorgeous 50’s prom dress from Bunkie, Louisiana where my mom was raised, a bright orange Young Victorian mini dress that was made in Los Angeles and still tells the tales of Rodney Bingenheimer’s English Disco on the Sunset Strip, and a weird tapestry fabric dress by Harry Keiser that I wore on a few birthdays.
At this point, I occupy the entire master closet so boy am I happy I found out about the ole Posh. After a failed attempt at selling clothes on eBay years ago (I fail a LOT when trying to bring ideas to fruition), I was skeptical at first but they make it so easy and I really like getting to interact with the buyer and seeing where it is going to and who is wearing what styles where.
Share my closet with friends that love vintage clothing and natural fibers and other good stuff! So many of the things listed right now can be used for Halloween costumes as well. Just in the past month I have found CK Calvin Klein Jeans overalls from the 90s, a mint condition Gunne Sax prairie gown (a million Halloween costumes in this one!) and a gorgeous yellow lace Karen Millen dress. Time to release the Kraken.
