My name is jkath, and I am a vintage rhinestone addict....

sizz, if you ever are in So Cal, we must shop!

Jessica - I had aa old great piece with jet crystal beads, but the silk thread was falling apart. So, rather than re-string, I gave many of the beads a new life, so to speak, by making many new sets of earrings. (I used to make/sell a lot of my jewelry) I still have some beads left, but those are going to be in a pin I design, I think.

It's odd.... I've got lots of clothes that may be considered 'vintage' - but the items are all things that I bought from new (or were my Mum's from the 50s and 40s). I have never bought second-hand clothes for myself!

The sad part is that now "vintage" can even apply to that odd stuff we wore in the 80's!

The 80's!?!?!?!?!?!

Please tell me no. I dated girls in the 80's who had outfits with bigger shoulder pads than I have EVER worn playing hockey!!!

John, did you know that the whole shoulder pad/peplum look was the "retro look" from the 40's? True! Of course the big hair was another story....

Shoulder pad yes, but the "Linebacker" look was definitely an 80's thing!

Well I like the British 30s & 40s, but I have no place to wear any of it. Plus I have no idea wear to get the stuff either.

The cool thing is, I seem to be wearing Vintage clothing all the time, and I wasn't even trying!

What concerns me is that the clothes were brand new when I bought them!
