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.

This Week’s Look is back from summer vacation and the fall/winter shopping is already in progress. In preparation for the imminent seasonal shift, earlier this summer we scored a couple pairs of vintage, leather driving gloves and a 1970s caramel leather blazer at cheap heatwave prices. This jacket will probably top a black and white striped, long-sleeved, crew neck t-shirt and skinny jeans. But we’re getting ahead of ourselves here. There’s a heat wave presently plaguing us here in southern California, so we’re going to have to put those treasures on hold until further notice.
The rest of you, however, are already picking up on the first signs of autumn. Instagram is full of snapshots featuring falling orange leaves and light jackets. For you, this week we have curated a collection of vintage leather blazers, as seen on etsy and eBay. Click on each image below to see the individual listing.

This week we found an iconic 1960s “Century of Boston” mod cage dress on etsy. This would look amazing with a nude bodysuit underneath, or if you have the abs to pull it off, just a bandeau bra as pictured. It reminds me of this Courrèges window dress from the late 1960s (first picture). Click on the second and third images below to see the seller’s etsy listing.
I once wrote that “vintage Halston” may be my most favorite combination of words ever. If you don’t believe me then check this out. Now don’t you feel silly for doubting my veracity? Well, I’m in a very forgiving mood today so I won’t let this temporary lapse of judgment mar my opinion of you. Back to this week’s look, below is an impeccable example of vintage Halston, a flawless, draped, one-shoulder goddess dress from the 1970s. Currently for sale on eBay and the seller is accepting offers. Click on the images below to see the actual listing.
