Vintage Sears Fashion

leave a comment »

Kestrin and Jonathan, a fashionable and multi-talented couple here on the L.A. scene, recently made a baby, as well as a feature-length film. I’m not sure in which order, as baby and film are both currently in post-production, but at some point in the process there was a baby shower/baby naming competition with brackets and everything, and it was on that evening that the couple gifted me with a book called Fashionable Clothing from the Sears Catalogs. Never before has friendship rang so harmoniously, as if they periscoped down into my true inner being and retrieved a polyester pants suit.

The aforementioned book served as our inspiration this week, as we scrubbed etsy and eBay clean of vintage fashions from the near-extinct Sears chain of department stores. Hell, we even found stuff for men too. Click on each image below to see the individual listing.

Vintage Tall Boots in Larger Sizes

with one comment

For my sister, who has humongoloid feet (just kidding, just kidding), today we are featuring vintage (and new but vintage-y) knee-high boots in larger sizes for women. I wear size 8.5 to 9, so I tend to look for vintage shoes that measure about 10.25 to 10.50 inches from heel to toe and about 3.25 inches across. The boots listed here today are size 9.5 and larger. As vintage sizing can vary dramatically from modern sizing, don’t go by the size marked, look at the actual measurements. Click on each image below to see the full listing.

My sister’s feet, pictured above left. Look at them. Just look at them. Also, that’s my niece Devyn in the middle and me on the right.

1966: Mod Men

leave a comment »

The “Mad Men” season four finale was set in October 1965, so we can logically assume that the fifth season, premiering in March 2012, will be set in 1966, the same year a subway strike brought New York City to a standstill. I can’t wait to see how they integrate that into the show.

1966 was a year of ups. Inflation was up, race tensions were high, the war in Vietnam was escalating, hemlines soared, and the U.S. and Soviets were involved in a little space race to the moon. Up, up and away! 1966 also marked the year the Black Panther Party was formed and when feminists founded the National Organization for Women (NOW).

On the fashion front, 1966 was all about London’s Carnaby Street look. André Courrèges had recently invented go-go boots and the mini-skirt, Pierre Cardin was doing the space age thing and Twiggy, dubbed “The Face of 1966,” dominated fashion magazines.   

This week, we are getting in the mod mood with some 1960s-flavored shoes and boots. Get them now before season five begins and you will be way ahead of the curve. Click on each image below to see the full listing.
