Viva la Vintage!

Manhattan Vintage 1980S PAULINE TRIGÈRE DEVORE VELVET DRESS

The Manhattan Vintage Clothing Show features New York City’s greatest collection of vintage clothing, accessories, and antique textiles from the last century and more.

There is a show scheduled for February 2021.  But, who knows what will happen with COVID-19.  A few of the vendors have put some key items on sale virtually – not quite as good as digging through the offerings, but still something fun to see!

dievca is starting to think about Presentation Outfits, again.

Wine/half a ham sandwich + internet shopping = danger

dievca escaped.

Barely.

We will talk about wine and internet shopping in more detail, later…

It was a long two days and dievca went up to the roof top to enjoy the warmer temperatures (64 F/ 18 C) after work with a bottle of wine – Lemon Hill Viognier. dievca thinks Master gave it to her – not bad.  The wind of the rooftop swept away some of the heat, so she meandered back to the apartment to finish the 2nd half of a ham sandwich.

This was not a heavy base for the wine she was drinking…

dievca has been spring cleaning, heavily and you know that she has cleared out the closets.  As a part of that process, she has thought about adding bits and pieces to her home decor.

she has a cozy Ugg Duffield throw blanket someone gave her as a gift, but maybe she needs (ok, wants) a more colorful update for summer. she doesn’t have cloth napkins in her current home color scheme. What about a pouf to sit on?

And the wine took over…

As a fan of Missoni, dievca became sucked in on Yoox, Farfetched, RueLala, Matches Fashion, eBay, Neiman Marcus searching for Home Good from the brand.  she was contemplating spending $800 at Rue LaLa for a robe, blanket and a pillow or $1000 at Yoox for a blanket, napkins, and a pouf.

she did a Google search and escaped the madness with just a tablecloth and napkins – on sale for $110, including shipping from Europe. And they are quirky enough to make her happy for Spring without breaking the bank.

Missoni Home Collection Eva Napkins Cotton

This choice was made after a couple of glasses of water.
Saved…

dievca does have a Missoni robe and a couple of Missoni throws in her eBay cart. Maybe they will make more sense in the morning.

So…..have you had a bit too much to drink and bought something on the internet?
Apparently, it’s a thing~😘


Finding yourself Funny…

dievca was at Thanksgiving Dinner and she asked a cousin what they were doing on Friday.
The cousin said, “Going shopping, of course!”, like dievca was stupid.
Ah, yes, Black Friday.
dievca had forgotten about that activity when you lived in the suburbs.
she internalized a smug smile because she was not going to be sucked into that foolishness…

Actually…that’s not true~

So, dievca is as pathetic or….worse than her cousin.
The smug smile was replaced with a laughing eyeroll.
Snort~
