  1. Shop my closet!

    Wednesday, March 20, 2013

    Once upon a time, I was a lot heavier than I am now. And, seemingly like magic, a lot of my weight disappeared (seriously, I did nothing. It just melted off I guess).

    Therefore, some of my clothes are getting pretty huge on me, but instead of just giving them away to Goodwill I am hoping that some of my readers are willing to give them a good home.

    If you're interested in any of these items, please email me at laurie[at]retro-reporter.com (instead of a comment) to discuss!

    DUSTBOWL DRESS

    PRICE: $20 + Shipping

    This 1930s-inspired dress is in excellent condition. While the age of the garment is unknown (but likely on the modern side of things), it gives off a stunning 1930s "dustbowl" vibe. Brand is given as Panache at Rustan, which is a brand from the Philippines. Dress has buttons and zippers in the back. Fabric feels silky (could not find a care or fabric layer, so I can't confirm that it's real silk), while the trim is a peach cotton.

    Shipping varies by location and method. Please message me to discuss shipping costs to your location.

    PUMPKIN SKIRT






    PRICE: $15 + Shipping. Item sold as-is

    This high-waisted, lined skirt is perfect for the winter and autumn months. Lining is ripped but perhaps could be replaced or mended by a better seamstress then I. Personally, I didn't notice the rip when wearing it and only discovered it when prepping it for sale.
    By Moiselle, this skirt was made in Hong Kong and is comprised of 65% wool and 35% viscose. Dry clean (or hand wash) only.

    BROWN COTTON WRAP SKIRT

    WOOL RED PLAID SKIRT
