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.
