    Hi Ladies. Long time, no see! I've bought loads but this is my most recent purchase.
    I can't really afford it but I got it to cheer me up because I have a virus again.

    Thank you so much for the info, Baroness!! I'll confess, identifying vintage synthetics is a skill I've yet to master. It does feel very satiny on the outside (when I first picked it up, I thought it might be silk) but is a matte weave on the inside, and hardly looks to be post-WWII... so it probably is rayon satin!

    Rosie Beau, that gingham dress is such a dream!! I adore the sailor color! Hope you get well soon :)

    I won this white lucite purse at an estate auction last month.

    I also won a lot of demitasse cups and saucers and a cedar chest. I will post some of these once I have them sorted out.

    I found this 50s woolen cardigan by Bradley Knitwear the other week in mint condition on ebay. Bought it for a friends birthday (she's a 1950s nut) but it was too small for her sadly. Even though she adored it, she told me to sell it on of I wanted to. If anyone is interested PM me and I'll give you some details.

    Tried to pm you, but your box is full! Does that mean the sweater has found a new home?

    my black 40s dress arrived some days ago and today I put it out of the freezer (I'm always freezing everything I bought secondhand because I'm scared of animals like fleas or lice)
    I'm so happy about it!

    Bought a RAF suit for £20 at the Duxford airshow, not vintage, but 80s. Still, the cut of the jacket is beautiful! Only showing the jacket here, there wasn't a changing room to try on the skirt..

    I think the length is perfect as it is. Very elegant and makes your legs look like they go on for miles. Can't believe I'm disagreeing with your grandmother.

    It's absolutely the correct length for a '40's dress.
