I am having a Give Away : ) Please come and check it out so I can put your name in to win!!!
Has anyone seen this graphic before? I bought the original vintage postcard on e-bay years ago and have since lost it. I think it is a Tuck card. I kept her because she is my image of what I would have looked like and more importantly, how I would have liked to have dressed. I love her flair with the black plumes and her use of stripes, brocade trim and I am sure the fabrics are cotton velvet. It looks like the good old heavy fabric.Are these shoes hot or what?
I personally cannot imagine walking in them yet I did wear 6 inch platforms in the 70's : ) Since I am 60 now my girls tease me about what I wore and how I dressed back in the 60's & 70's : ) Bell bottom pants, fur vests, flowered anything was cool back then, the love beads (tons of them) and all platform shoes. The embroidered gauze blouses, so billowy and light.
Have a very pleasant day and please come and leave a comment you can have your name included in the Give Away : )

    Wow you wore 6" platforms! I too can't image that.
    OMG thanks for the blast from the past. I thought I was "Cher" back in the mid 60s! I was 16 had long dark hair, tall, thin. I wore bell bottom pants and love beads. How funny.... I thought I was so cool! My hubby (now my x) back then looked like Sonny. He was short brown hair not really that good looking. What a couple we made LOL..
    Thanks for the smile :-}
    Peace! ~Mary~
