Sweet vintage colored slips....

These pretties, plus several more are available in my etsy store, houndvintage. The yellow one is a Van Raalte, which is one of my favorite makers; the green is Hollywood Vassaratte...both sweet as can be!

The perfect summer Estevez hostess Maxi dress!

Nothing says summer like this garden party print Vintage 60s Eva Gabor style Estevez! I've just listed it. It's a crisp but soft triacetate over silky nylon lining that follows the length of the skirt. Lovely construction and would be so flattering (if only yours truly was a little more petite *sigh*).

For the lingerie lovers, I am listing this weekend a rainbow of sherbet-hued vintage slips including a few Van Raaltes--those will be on ebay under my houndlover68 id.

Look at this crazy purse! Me love, me love :)

I love to admire handbags but am sooo clumsy with them. I recently 'fessed up that my very first croc--red leather it was-- a gift to boot, about the third time I used it I dumped an entire latte in it. Gads. Anyway, I thought this gator one was particularly gawk-worthy. It's available from etsy seller ArtBoxDesigns.
