I am really looking forward to the chats with the team. <BR> <BR> Cristeane Thu, 18 Jun 2009 17:02:32 EST Clothing site Found this site, it has some great looks, and prices.

Vintage clothing covers many different eras and styles, and I'm sure that we all have varying, let's talk about them! <BR> <BR> I'll my collection of vintage clothing grew over the years, and my home decorating styles changed, I eventually have settled on looks that reflect mainly the mod era (so around 1996 to 1970). What's great is that in Southern California, you can get away with reflecting that style! <BR> <BR> But here's the rub. I'm not as young as I used...

My name is Janet and I LOVE LOVE LOVE vintage clothing --- despite the fact that I cannot fit into any AT THE POINT. <BR> I almost cried last month ... my mom gave away all of her clothes from the 50s and 60s --- all high quality, beautiful and expensive formal wear. <BR> <BR> (I could not make a case as 50 years ago she was TINY TINY TINY ... her rib cage "grew" with all of us, even -- she was prob. a size 4.) She donated all of the clothing to the local theatre group as she knew I would k... Sun, 2 Nov 2008 00:49:32 EST My New Baby... While this isn't a clothing purchase, I thought you all would appreciate it anyway. I recently bought a 1923 Victrola! She still works and I have about 200 records! I love the 20's and 30's and if I can find a way to incorporate Her into our wedding, you better bet I will! It takes a lot of work listening to music though... We are definitely spoiled now with I-Pods and MP3s... You have to put in a new needle, crank it up, put on the record, adjust the speed, and when the 1 song is over, ... Wed, 30 Jul 2008 12:20:27 EST Welcome New Members!!! I don't know who are Team Leader is, but I would like to welcome the new members to this team.

Do you all incorporate vintage pieces in your everyday wardrobe, or just for special occassions? I have/had a couple of 50's skirts and dresses that used to wear to work, and around town for everyday use. <BR> <BR> Ginger Tue, 27 May 2008 20:04:02 EST Is This an Active Team? Hi, <BR> <BR> Just wondering if this is an active team as I have not had hardly any response to my postings. <BR> <BR> Ginger Mon, 26 May 2008 17:57:11 EST Fave vintage *inspired* pieces Loving the responses in the "fave vintage pieces" topic, wondered if anyone here has super-gorgeous modern pieces, with a vintage styling, that are so lovely they want to shout out and tell the world (are at least all of us) about? <BR> <BR> Me? Well, the dress in my profile pic, for starters. It's an exact replica of the frock Marilyn Monroe wore to sing "Diamonds are a girls' best friend", only her dress is sugar-pink and mine is red.... it was actually a gift from a friend who'd had it ma... Fri, 23 May 2008 11:46:21 EST Hi From Naples Florida Greetings, <BR> <BR> Just checking out the Team Boards and came across this one. <BR> <BR> I had my own vintage clothing store in PA for almost 5 years. Then we moved to Florida and bought a drapery business so no more clothes for me. <BR> <BR> I MISS IT TERRRIBLY!!! <BR> <BR> I have struggled with my weight for years and years and have NOT been able to fit into any of my vintage for about 8 years. It would be lovely to wear some of the 50's sundresses again. As well as some of the Victo... Wed, 21 May 2008 15:41:33 EST Hi! I'm new to the group and I just wanted to say "Hi". :) I live in NC and while I've been working on changing my eating and exercise habits for quite awhile I'm just now starting to get into the spark teams and forums. <BR> <BR> I love vintage clothing, especially clothes from the 1930's-1950's. :) I also do a lot of sewing and have recently started trying my hand at the vintage vogue patterns. <BR> <BR> Looking forward to meeting you guys. :) Thu, 15 May 2008 15:21:46 EST Sew your own creation I'm thinking of getting back into sewing, setting up a spot in the office corner of the house... <BR> <BR> If you have or are doing any creative stuff to your vintage peices, share tips. There are so many fabulous patterns for vintage style or simply put- anything fabulous and classy. I just thought we could spark up some life on the site and expand our thoughts on our great taste for fashion. <BR> <BR> :) <BR> <BR> Maybe even kick up a challenge- something creative! Wed, 2 Apr 2008 12:23:57 EST Hello fellow Dames Hey everyone! <BR> My name is Maggie and I'm not entirely new. I joined not too long ago, but haven't said hi yet. A little bit about me, I am a 21 yr old female mechanic working at a dealership. Hopefully someday I will run my own shop!!! Working on custom rods of course! I am getting married next year so I joined Sparkpeople so I won't look like the Michelin Man on my wedding day. I am excited about this group and sharing ideas about one of my passions which is vintage fashion. I hope every... Wed, 5 Mar 2008 16:39:02 EST Vintage Wedding Hey All! <BR> Im a new SP member and joined not only to get healthy and feel better, but to look killer in my 1930's inspired wedding gown! (Yeah!)

In Memory of... <BR> <BR> Please join me in remembering a great icon of the entertainment community. The Pillsbury Doughboy died yesterday of a yeast infection and trauma complications from repeated pokes in the belly. He was 71. <BR> <BR> Doughboy was buried in a lightly greased coffin. Dozens of celebrities turned out to pay their respects, including Mrs. Butterworth, Hungry Jack, the California Raisins, Betty Crocker, the Hostess Twinkies, and Captain Crunch. The grave site was piled hi... Fri, 22 Feb 2008 19:28:37 EST Goal outfit Has anyone besides myself already set aside a skinny vintage "reward" outfit? <BR> I have the most gorgeous designer pink and gold and AB swarovski dress. It's not a party dress, but more a professional-looking Jackie O style outfit. Kind of like a blinged out 60s secretary. Mon, 18 Feb 2008 21:19:45 EST Favorite On-Line Store(s)? I just bought a few things from Rusty Zipper. I was pleased. Fri, 25 Jan 2008 16:14:17 EST Hello, doll... Just joined. Vintage clothing is one of my passions. It's rare that I buy something other than vintage. Vintage clothes look fabulous and unique plus they're generally inexpensive. Why isn't everyone buying these clothes? Lucky for us, they're not. <BR> <BR> Cheers! Fri, 25 Jan 2008 14:58:27 EST Newbie here! Hi there, <BR> <BR> Just stopping by to say Hello. Joined SP a few nights ago in hopes of getting movtivated & losing some pounds. Love vintage clothing! <BR> <BR> Carrie <em>41</em> Wed, 16 Jan 2008 23:42:38 EST New to Team - Anyone still around?? Heya! Is anyone still active in this team? <BR> <BR> I absolutely LOVE vintage clothing and even sew the odd repro myself. Right now I'm into making aprons because they're so quick to make and are great little gifts (and they fit no matter how "fluffy" I am). Tue, 8 Jan 2008 16:15:26 EST Trying to keep discussions going.... What icon from the past do you most admire? It could be for his or her fashion sense, talent, or strictly based on appearance. <em>204</em> Mon, 24 Sep 2007 17:55:16 EST Any sellers on here? I used to, but I'm just way too busy these days. I'm thinking about liquidating my boxes (and boxes) of inventory that's been taking over my house. Mon, 20 Aug 2007 18:10:49 EST Perfered decades? I'm a 30's-50's girl. How 'bout you? Mon, 9 Apr 2007 00:33:41 EST Favorite vintage pieces? Share your favorite vintage pieces. (: <BR> <BR> My absolute favorite vintage piece that I have now is my white wool hat with navy band. I got it at a vintage flea market for $10. The lady I bought it from said it was 30's/40's, but I'm not so sure. I'm horrible at dating hats. Tue, 27 Mar 2007 22:00:53 EST
