    Wearing vintage accessories with good taste in a reasonably authentic way?

    Hello! I'm sorry if this has been posted before, I did try searching first and didn't find what I wanted but I completely understand if this thread has to be deleted. I'd actually intended to ask for help in matching my accessories for Easter (and, I'm still on the lookout for a lovely Easter...

    How do you feel about(Vintage) fur?

    I wear faux, although I'm not opposed to the concept of a nice, vintage fur. I think if it were a coat or muffs, or something like that where you wouldn't have the feel of plastic feet or any eyes staring up at you, and it were in good condition (as in, you could clean it if you had to without...

    What vintage won't you wear?

    I love beautiful fashion from all decades, but I try to stick to the mid-30s through mid-40s as well and am making a valiant effort to be at least somewhat authentic (failing, but trying). I dabbled a bi in the 50s and early 60s when I first started out but quickly decided it didn't suit me...

    Terms Which Have Disappeared

    Now that you've gone and mentioned it, I'll probably start using that one. I'm trying to incorporate some of these things, subtly, into my vocabulary.

    Terms Which Have Disappeared

    I don't know if this has been mentioned before, but my grandpa George (who was a bit of a character) used to say someone was a 'cracker jack' at something if they were a natural at it or were good at it.

    What vintage won't you wear?

    I don't really consider Rockabilly to be a vintage look, since it's such an eclectic clashing and mis-matching of different styles and so heavily influenced by punk, goth and the like. It's very John Waters meets Tim Burton meets PeeWee's Playhouse, usually, but I think it's adorable. I wouldn't...

    New Ladies and Gents Step Forward

    Hello to everyone I haven't said hello to yet! :) I meant to reply when folks said hi to me but real life happened and I never did, I'm such a stinker.

    Thinking about a tattoo, but is it what good girls did in the 1940's?

    Whoo, that was a lot of reading to catch up! Someone mentioned (very early on in the thread, sorry for rehashing!) wanting to get stocking seams inked if you could get rid of them and I had a thought, actually --- there's a method of tattooing eyebrows that fades, isn't there? I think I've heard...

    New Ladies and Gents Step Forward

    Good morning! My name is Nancy, I just turned 37 (I believe that entitles me to be fitted for my walker and a spot in the opening them to The Golden Girls) and I live in NW Missouri near Kansas City. I've been lurking here at Fedora Lounge, using it as a resource to help build a more authentic...
