Interesting list - and I am the lucky owner of to Louis Feraud-dresses from the early 70th - fits me perfect! My mother used to wear them.
Yesterday I found a Laura Ashley floral dress from 1988 in my closet - still fits me and I still like it. But now it is to cold in Norway to use it. Thanks for an inspiring blog -I like your stile :-)

♥ fashion chalet said...

Great list of labels. I scored a vintage Gucci sweater that I am waiting for it to get cold enough to wear. It's very 80's looking, but I still love it. ^-^

Thanks for your comment. I always look forward to what you have to say. And I'm glad the video worked for you, some have said it did not play or have sound? Luckily it worked for you. I actually ate that for lunch yesterday so when I re-saw my video today, I got hungry! Haha. What did you have for dinner? We had pizza tonight (I make them from scratch) I love cooking as you can see.

Miss Victory said...

You're a wealth of knowledge - I love it.

By the way you'll be proud - I got some waist high wide John Rocha trousers from a charity shop the other day! They were dirt cheap too. :D

Sharon Rose said...

Hi secretista-hope you find it useful my dear!

Hi fashion chalet-I look forward to seeing you in this-it sounds fab!! Haha, I had cumberland pie (meat and potato and carrots) with beans and then ice cream for afters! I had pizza too at lunchtime!

Hi miss victory-thanks for your lovely comment! I'd love to see these trousers, they sound fab!!
