Back home from a family vacation that took us up to Victoria BC
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...
Maybe it is vintage!
hehe.. Excellent!!! Outstanding!
Makes me think, when the things we've owned since new become "vintage", what's that say 'bout us?
Thanks for all the fun comments everyone. I went to a thrift store yesterday and found good vintage neckties for fifty cents!!!
CONGRATS!!!!! :eusa_clap :eusa_clap :eusa_clap

Very similar stuff for the past 12 days or so.
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.showing my entire set up, our kids painted the "Sewing for Victory!" and "Make Do and Mend!" banners
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.
a family picture
chanteuseCarey that has to be one of the best family pictures i have seen,:cheers1: very cute.
Just how big is your collection? And just how big are your closets??
Hey Bugsy! Where are the pictures of your Deckard suit!?
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.
after seeing Metropd's terrific sepia pic...
had to try something similar. Cropped a bit tighter and done as Blk/Wht
All I can say is most impressive!! Are you good people going to be at the Gatsby Summer Afternoon?
Thanks Bugsy! You betcha we'll be there... We need some Charleston lessons beforehand tho
