Vintage Heart Attack!
The latest "age" issue of Vogue with Linda Evangelista on the cover helped me realize that old people are really freakin' cool. Easily inspired, I trekked across the road to my grandparents' house to try and uncover some neat vintage finds. Neat? Maybe. I came across the '50's style poodle-skirt Hallowe'en costume made for my mom a long long time ago. Unparalelled? Certainly. I was quite shocked to find a bright yellow vintage Burberry trench between rows upon rows of heavily shoulder-padded blouses. It's gorgeous and in pretty darn good condition for vintage, the only imperfection being an unfortunate paint stain on the bottom hem. I'm not in posession of a functioning digital camera right now, so posting pictures isn't an option but this is a picture of someone else's vintage Burberry trench for sale on Ebay. Just imagine it in a bright canary yellow.
