FRINGE BENEFITS

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.

SOTBM – NEW THIS WEEK

Hey guys,

 How was your weekend? Mine was an incredible! I spent the past 3 days on a buying trip through rural Oklahoma, Kansas, and Missouri. The weather was perfect, the scenery was beautiful, and the people were super nice and friendly. I’m kicking myself for forgetting my camera, but oh well. I’ll go back soon : ).

 Naturally, I bought tons of great vintage. Next months Sisters of the Black Moon auctions will be mindblowing! I can’t wait to drop this batch off to them in early November. Sister Sara will be in town then, so hopefully I’ll get to meet her!

 Anyway, there’s no shortage of awesome till then. Here are some beauties the Sisters listed on Friday, sourced by yours truly:

 

 

 All that glitters. This vintage romper came from the estate of a gal who was a circus performer in the 50s and 60s. This was one of her costumes! It’s totally smocked on the underside, so it has tons of stretch in every direction. Loaded with metallic gold sequins + has a metal zipper up the back. This is perfect for a glam rock inspired look. here

Insanely rare find! Semi sheer light cotton and metallic gold 1920s floral print party dress. 20s evening dresses made of cotton are a rarity, and usually originate from Belgium or France; this likely had a designer label at once point. From a prominent Wichita Falls, TX estate (the wealthiest American city at one point in the 20s, thanks to oil $$$). V neck w/ capelet collar, shirred sides @ drop waistline, geometric paneled skirting, and a subtle fishtail / asymmetric hem. If you’re after museum quality and wearable look no further. Great size too! here

 Gypsy witch! Late 80s/90s burnout velvet jacket in a kimono inspired style. Gorgeous winter floral print, sequin accents, and beaded/tasseled fringe. Perfect for layering w/ basic black. here

Red hot. Sexy 60s/70s mod mini dress. Subtle a-line cut w/ plunging v neck. Zips down the back. Wear it as is for a rock & roll bad girl look, or wear a long sleeved knit top underneath for a sharp mod look. here

Angel of the east. 70s Indian inspired mini w/ lavish pink embroidery, dramatic sleeves, and lil’ buttons along the shoulder seams. The best! here

Ultimate find! Avant garde 80s wrap mohair sweater from iconic designer Pierre Cardin. Deep v neckline, dramatic dolman sleeves, and side tie. Super soft + perfect for the season. Gorgeous deep purple too. here

Anna Sui vintage inspired lovely. Babydoll style w/ empire waist. Lil’ ties at the sides. Sheer cream/black floral silk w/ cream lining. So precious! here

Ooooh yeah! 60s/70s cream colored canvas boots. Stacked heel + front lacing. Below the knee length. Great earthy look. A must have. here

Perfect fall floral. 80s/90s palazzo pant rayon romper. Soft fluid silhouette. Such a dream. here

With a print this bright and cheerful, you can’t help but smile. Different kind of crystal healing! Super cute 60s/70s cotton mini in a gemstone and gold print. Pristine condition. here

60s babydoll mini w/ fringe hem. Perfect shades of deep red in the rose print. Imagine this paired with some black Louboutins! Parisian style romantic elegance. here

Here are a few stunners the sisters sourced on their own too:

70s dolly bell sleeve mini in a patchwork print. V neck + empire waistline + self belting. So beautiful! here

70s southwestern/geometric print micro mini dress. Perfect color combo. Comes with it’s original matching belt even. So cute! here

Ugh! Why can’t I find a piece like this for myself?!?!? Amazing 60s/70s faux fur leopard print cape w/ toggle front closure. Channel your inner Blair Waldorf and STRUT PROUDLY. here

I love vintage fraternal order robes, and this 70s disco mini w/ attached cape reminds me of them. Therefore I love it too. It also reminds me of the Virgen de Guadalupe >

You could go as a sexy version of her for Halloween, yes? YES. Good. Go here then.

There’s lots of cute stuff ending today too. Don’t miss out!

xoxo, SJ
