    The Middy Thread

    My question is, how do you roll it? I got a sort of middy cut, but I guess I've forgotten how to roll my hair. Is there a diagram somewhere? Oh and I tend to use spongerollers, as my caruso rollers won't work in Spain :(

    Vintage-Inspired clothing lines

    I had some trousers made by ReVamp back in LA. I picked the fabric so perhaps my bad here, but I was really disappointed that for over $125, the seams were coming apart and the buttonholes on the trousers all eventually had to be redone. AllureOriginals is the only person I'll go to for handmade...

    Vintage for the over 40 crowd

    Wow, this is such an interesting thread. I am 45 with two kids and dressing vintage is about the only thing that makes me feel that I have not "given up," and gone frumpy. However, there are some things in my wardrobe that I just am not sure I will wear again, certain dresses that maybe I will...

    Saddle shoes

    Hi Polly Sorry, I hadn't checked this thread in ages. I spent about 3 weeks trying to get in touch with them. I tried everything. I even contacted the businesses that were across the road or nearby to ask them if they are around. Margaret Marshall <muffy@muffys.com> is who dealt with my...

    Favorite Repro 1930s dress makers?

    http://www.etsy.com/shop/allureoriginalstyles In my opinion, no one does 30s wear, separates, trousers, dresses, skirts better than Mutsumi at allureoriginalstyles. Her seams are perfect and she knows her period. Everything I have bought from her has been money well spent. She doesn't have much...

    Saddle shoes

    Hi lidies.. I did manage to finally get hold of muffy's....but it took several tries. They don't seem to answer the phone true. I finally sent they a fax vía internet. They answered my question about size and got they to friends who brought them to spain. The service was excellent once i got...

    Saddle shoes

    Hi Ladies Has anyone bought Muffy's saddle shoes in awhile or even tried to contact them? I have tried to call them for over a week (though I'm in Spain, but I'm trying around the time their store opens and on Saturday). I even had my sister try to call from Indiana last night. She said no...

    Remix Shoes!!

    Hi ladies I posted on the cute and vintagey footwear thread, but hoping a more direct post will get the result I am looking for. I am interested in buying the l'amour wedge, but I have not seen what it looks like on someone's foot as re-mix doesn't provide that on their site and I can't seem to...

    Cute Vintage-y Shoes

    I have decided to get some spring/summer wedges. I lived in LA 7 years and never managed to get anything at ReMix, which is sort of maddening now that I am all the way in Spain. The L'Amour wedges seem really nice and have a great look, but I'd like to know if anyone has bought them, how they...

    Caruso steam rollers

    I live in Spain now and my old U.S. set of Caruso rollers cannot be used. I have seen some advertised as "can be used on foreign currents," but I want to be sure they won't fry up here in Spain. I have dual voltage electronics here that still spark a bit when I plug them in. Hair appliances I...

    Custom made vintage repros...

    Has anyone seen on Etsy or elsewhere, anyone who is doing repro riding trousers or 1930s style skirts (preferably to wear in autumn or winter) and or sweaters? There is just some amazing stuff out there, and it looks like spring dresses and trousers won't be an issue, but I've got a stretch of...

    Thanks Lauren and everyone! (We miss you Lauren but Madrid is lovely. The only thing is that I really do need an autumn/winter wardrobe now!)
