Currently in search of a good home: this jaw dropping 1920s slouch vest w/ attached cape… dripping with ridiculous (in a good way) 19.5″ jet black fringe. There’s two 40″ long tassel style fringe clusters in front as well. Excellent condition and very wearable. These days it’s extremely rare to find vintage as old, exceptional, AND wearable. I find maybe 2 pieces that fit the bill per year. So I guess this year is off to a good start!
Snatch it up for $549.00 if you have deep pockets. If not, don’t be intimated. The reserve is considerably lower.
Fast forward several decades to something similar (and undoubtedly 20s inspired), from boutique label All That Remains. Yours for $690.00 at Bonadrag.

Brrrr, is it ever cold outside! Remember what I told you about TX weather? Last week felt like spring. But this week we’ve had snow, icy roads, single digit temperatures… and more snow is predicted for tomorrow.
Needless to say, I’ve hardly left home. Which in a sense is a blessing, because (when the power isn’t down) it’s pushed me to focus on adding new items to the Goldmine Trash shop. This isn’t even the begining of our stock. I have a lot of seams to reinforce and hems to restitch on the vintage, and several House of Trash dresses need finishing touches. Slowly but surely I’m working on it. So here’s a start:
I love these 80s butterfly tops! They look great with skinny jeans (or shorts in the summer), and can be layered over maxi dresses as well. Perfect for partying in. You’ll have no problem standing out in dark room with this thing on! It’s deadstock – never worn vintage – and has the original tag + bag of extra sequins and beads intact.
I’ve dubbed this the Intoxi-dress, in honor of Intoxica Radio with Howie Pyro. A collector of all things vintage since childhood, Howie has over 30,000 vinyl records alone! Intoxica is my favorite radio show because Howie’s great sense of humor really comes out on there. Plus, you can hear stuff you’ll never hear anywhere else. In an age where everything seems instantly accessible online, that’s quite an accomplishment, imo.
This House of Trash dress was handmade by yours truly, from deadstock vintage fabric in an ultra rare vinyl record print. It fits a modern size large, and you’ll need some dangerous curves to fill this baby out. My dressform did this no justice!
Mother of God. This thing is amazing! I’ve pretty much seen it all in my 15+ years of wearing, collecting, and selling vintage. This piece had me stumped however. The gal I originally purchased it from thought it had something to do with the Russian Orthodox church. There’s no religious insignias on it though.
Other theories are that it’s a vintage costume, a fraternal order costume, or a vintage Indian garment. One of our Facebook friends offered the most likely explanation though: that it’s a torero (bull fighters) costume. Considering that TX borders Mexico, this makes the most sense.
According to her, the matching skullcap would’ve been worn under a larger hat. And the drawstring bag would’ve carried religious trinkets for good luck.
Whatever the case may be, this set is stunning! It’s hand stitched, and all that cording is hand tacked in place. The velvet looks and feels like a 30s velvet, so I’m dating this to the 1930s. It’s in fabulous condition. It’s perfect for a boho babe to make some magic in, but would be perfect for a burlesque costume too.
