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.

Tomorrow is the first offical day of fall! And in celebration, this uber amazing black leather wiggle dress has founds it’s way to Goldmine Trash. And into my heart.
Sadly, my dressform was a tad too large for it, therefore it doesn’t come close to doing it justice. On a gal the right size though!!! Heads will turn and hearts will break.
(work with me here)
Strapless, boned, nipped in waist, pencil skirt, and zip down front. Va-va-voom.
I love how this style is so versatile. With Bettie Page bangs, horned rimmed glasses, and springolators, a gal could be vintage Barbie gone bad. Or a 50s fetish model.
Or she can add bigger hair and heavier eye makeup for a punk inspired look…
OR some edgy accessories for a Gaga inspired look!
Of course, leather isn’t always tough girls, cigarettes, and rock & roll.
It can also be high fashion, sophistacted, and elegant. As Emma Stone proved at this years VMA’s.
All grown up! Miley Cyrus looks stunning in this black leather dress.
I was so thrilled when leather dresses paraded down the fall/winter 2010 runways. Everyone from Diane von Furstenburg to DSquared2 had these sexy things in their collections.
Of course, that’s the joy of wearing vintage. You get all the style and quality, at a fraction of the price. Ours is currently up for grabs for only $69.99!
How would you wear this look?
