I have a real photo that yours reminds me of. (I think of some great great uncles or something like that....)Oh I wish I knew which box it was in! As soon as I find it, I'll post it.

I have a lot of 60s clothes that I bought in the King's Road, Chelsea and in Carnaby Street. I have original Biba, Mary Quant, Zandra Rhodes and other English designers. I also have original Courrege white boots and other 60s style shoes. Younger relatives often raid my attic when they have theme parties to go to!

Yes, I just can't bear to part with them. They get dry-cleaned and hung in mothproof bags in a wardrobe in the attic... I've got 2 black and white PVC raincoats that were so stiff that when you sat down, the front swun up (sort of like a very short crinoline!). I have Dr Zhivago style dresses and coats (very popular here in about 69 or 70, I think).

A girl after my own heart. I love vintage clothing. I'm always on the look for it at thrift stores, flea markets and estate sales. The best part is when people come up to me wanting to know where I bought something and their shock when I tell them its vintage and unfort. they'll probably have a hard time finding one like it.

My weakness is jewelry, spring/summer dresses, coats and jackets. I love clothing and jewelry from 30's, 40's, 60's, 70's and 80's.

I have a collection of various pieces of jewelry. The black glass jewelry (mourning jewelry) is one of my favorites. In fact, I finally had to start restraining myself when it came to buying these pieces as I have a vast collection already. However, I love the boho and rhinestone jewelry also.

Mourning jewellery, though sad (if you think about it's meaning) is soooo beautiful. I've always been on the look-out for some, but haven't encountered any yet in my price range. Is your's made from real jet, Sizzlin? (I really like cameos and other Victorian jewellery too.)
