Slips In My Tree
I just love vintage slips and had several at one time. Still have a few. However I notified a lady in California who dyes them and wears them for like a sun dress. She looks good in them. They are all small sizes. I mean like 36 38 bust size, but they looked smaller than a size 38 today.More like a 32 . This full figured lady can't get in that size. You know any body over size 14 is Full figured? I think I seen that on Oprah maybe , about our size. She had a model on size 12 who was modeling for a clothing line for us full figured ladies. I haven't been a size 8 since High school or maybe grade school!! Oh well enough about our figures.
I believe the name of her blog is Glamarella Junk. She is out in sunny California. I would like to go to some of those flea markets out there.I read a few blogs of ladies who live in California and they are always posting their wonderful finds from a day at the flea market.
These slips always remind me of my Grandmother, she always had a slip under her dress. Back in the day ladies wore dresses every day. Can any one remember that? The good ole days. As they say. I don't want to wear a dress & slip everyday. However I do love looking back at my child hood and remembering my Mother and Grandmother all dressed up pretty. OK I need to get off this subject.
I had these hanging outside in my tree and on my wood fence to photograph them for the lady I sold them to. I am using this one for my background on my home computer.
