    OFF TOPIC-ish (I don't know what happened to the off topic smiley) I saw an old school sewing machine on the side of the road the other day and hoped it would still be there on my way back. It wasn't. :(

    Do you have things in common with your friends?

    WHAT HE SAID It's okay to have friends who aren't as into "it" as you-- as long as they respect it. Hang with those with similar interests and your circle of friends will expand and be more diverse. I felt "alone" with my vintage interests until I moved to LA in '03 & discovered a whole world...

    Do You Listen to "40s on 4" on Sirius/XM?

    I do! I flip between that, 50's, 80's and Howard. Sometimes I'll do 60's & 70's but it's too much classic rock for my taste. I agree with you all about the 20's & 30's. Maybe it's difficult to get good songs and/or permission/rights??? [huh]

    the *stigma* with wearing red lipstick

    When I used to work for MAC, I recall a young gal saying that she didn't want to wear a red lipstick because she "didn't want to look like a prostitute." Of course, I was wearing a red lipstick.

    petroleum jelly?

    Oof! This makes my skin sad :( It's a wax and is water resistant and not a humectant (that which attracts moisture) if anything one would use a moisturizer and then use this barrier product to seal in moisture. It doesn't let the skin breathe and release the oil and toxins it needs to, to be...

    I love saddles-- I'm desperate for a navy blue pair. I would think you could wear them with a lot of different looks. Lizzie I didn't realize they went t hat far back, that is cool to know.

    sheer blouses

    It's a fine line to walk. I've never had too many sheer blouses, but had always worn a cami underneath. I guess if you have a super intricate bra/full girdle maybe, but I've never found the look to be becoming.

    Now this is fascinating. I've thought about that too- only to create the ultimate utilitarian handbag for myself.
