bits and bobbins here!
jenny (miss queenthings) asked me to be part of this homage to all things secondhand, and i could not in my right mind say no! my plan is to pop in now and again and muse about the fun and fancy of secondhand clothing: show off some of my all time favorite finds, how to style outfits with thrifted pieces, how to mix new and old pieces with panache, possible forays into the history of certain designers or elements of clothing construction, field questions from the fashion facinated, pseudo-academically examine the nature of thrifting in general, and so forth, and so on. i'm SO excited!
at this juncture in my life, i've got more than 15 years of thrifting experience under my belt, an unequivocal, life-long love affair with fashion (vintage and new, classic and irreverent), and a formal education in art, art history, history and fashion design. so i'm poised and ready and willing to dive in, to obssess and confess!
ciao for now...
