    Wearing a new set of brown kilt hose and new black belts.

    The tie while not vintage is a favorite of mine with its walking stick pattern. I was given it new when I was about 19 which makes it over twenty years old...

    :eek:

    Maybe it is vintage!

    :)

    Cheers

    hehe.. Excellent!!! Outstanding!

    Makes me think, when the things we've owned since new become "vintage", what's that say 'bout us? :)

    worn last night-for WWII convoy

    Participated in a ride around town (San Jose, CA) in a WWII 1945 WC (Weapons Carrier) for the "Keep the Spirit of 45 Alive!" event. All vintage pieces, except for my snood that FL member Cherry_Red made for me and the Allyn Scura repro sunglasses!

    today- WWII Sewing Impression

    Here I am with all my "stuff" as a wife on the home front doing sewing and mending. This was at the "Keep the Spirit of '45 Alive!" event in San Jose, CA. Talked to people about the "Make Do and Mend" policy during the war, about vintage 40s clothing styles and materials, fabric shortages, home sewing and more. The WWII Army re-enactors were supposed to have a vintage tent for me- but when they tried to set it up, some key pieces were missing. Had to keep shifting the clothes rack with the vintage clothing into the shade as the afternoon progressed. Next door to me was a field hospital tent set up and FL member Genevieve was there as a WAC Nurse.

    Wearing 40s vintage:
    red/wht/blue rayon dress, shoes, jewelry and my 40s AO eyeglasses. I'm letting the hem down in a 40s vintage suit slip of Sarah's.
    [​IMG]
    showing my entire set up, our kids painted the "Sewing for Victory!" and "Make Do and Mend!" banners
    [​IMG]
    our two vintage 40s lovin' kids Daniel 13yo and Sarah 15yo. The quilt seen here is dated 1937 and was made for my FIL by his grandmother.

    The family's vintage collection is not (yet) too unmanageble in size.

    Our 13yo son has the smallest amount of vintage items of the four of us-just can't find the goods in his size. I have the most, as I wear my vintage much more often. What you see on the clothing rack is just a sampling we brought along to show clothing (styles, materials) that a typical 40s family would have.

    We don't have that big of closets! Our daughter's things are in my closet and Daniel's are in Chuck's closet.
