Mail Order 4569 Eye Candy Retro Blouse / ca. 1960's
We had a great extended weekend camping with friends. It was in the 70's during the day and nicely chilly at night so a big bonfire was welcome. Saturday afternoon there was an awesome windstorm for about 4 or 5 hours so we hung around in the trailer drinking beer and laughing. A much needed rest. While the guys were out riding I laid around and read. Finished a really fascinating book called the Hunger Games and then downloaded the next two books. I finished book 2 and am on book 3 which is the finale. Wow - it's gripping. Until a friend recommended this book series last week I hadn't ever heard of it and now I hear a movie is coming out in March. I highly recommend this series - you can't put it down. The movie trailer looks intense too. Hunger Games Trailer
Featured vintage pattern is : Mail Order 4569 Eye Candy Retro Blouse / ca. 1960's- this genre has certainly taken off with the Mad Men series. I have only seen bits and pieces of the show but the fashions are bringing back that era with a bang.
Featured "New" is Vogue 2457 Dazzling Double Breasted Dress 1990 which is the epitomy of a sailor collar coatdress. I love this one.
