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.

Rainy Days and Sundays

with one comment

It’s raining here in Los Angeles today so I’m sipping coffee and browsing vintage spy coats on eBay. I already have two amazing vintage trench coats. And when I say two, I mean four of course. Still, just because I’m on a diet doesn’t mean I can’t see the dessert cart.

Today I found a vintage Lanvin spy coat in a traditional khaki. Love the tortoise-like buckles on the cuffs. The current bid on eBay is only $29.99, which is a great price for vintage Lanvin. Click on the images below to see the listing.
