Step 1 Completed:

I have finished Step 1 of my Coming Out ensemble.  To explain the name, The Steampunk World's Fair in May will be my first steampunk voyage.  And so, I have named my first ensemble the Coming Out.  It consists of a champagne colored slip I bought from Ross:  Dress for Less for $9.99.  At my height of five feet it is full length dress on me.

Step 1:  I made five layers of lace that I will place in tiered levels starting at the bodice.  The lace is crocheted with bedspread weight cotton…

Interview with vintage fashionista Brigitte Daguerre!

I thought the fine citizens of the Empire would enjoy my recent blog interview since it involves vintage clothing, vintage clothing advice, and a very savvy place to find vintage peices of high quality!

 

What trendy  girl (or metro boy!) doesn’t love vintage clothing—it looks stylish, never goes out of fashion, and can be handed down without your little sister crying: “Aw, are you joking—wear this…
