OVER 70 STILL GLAMOROUS are you related to MONIQUE PARENT? my closet has 38 yr. young clothes ,the 80,s in it (but no couture ) my own vintage store he he he and I wear it ALL.I didnt shop for one year. thank you connie
Beautiful clothes should live on forever on beautiful people. Wool, silk n linen textiles can last a long amount of time if properly cared for. Today there is an abundance of synthetic fabric not quite th same luxury
Oh my God, her store is a museum, a goldmine, it's uniqueness, it's a one-time chance to actually experience how it feels to even touch clothes like these! It's history and you can wear it, feel the energy of that time. Oh my! 😱
Petition to bring back men's 60s-80s fashion and hell, why not bring back greaser styles cause wow their clothing today is so dull and boring. Trust me when I say you will be talked about more if you throw on more color.
The great thing about it is that it is MIGHTY ecological. It is recycling at its finest . And i'd rather have someone by a vintage fur than a brand new cotton shirt , and HELL KNOS i am against fur . (I'm a veterinarian) , but vintage fur, the damage is already done and i'd rather the animal skin didn't end up in a trash . So i couldn't support more people who wear vintage second hand clothes , these people are doing the planet a huge favour and deserve our respect . Besides , you look absolutely stunning . Personally i think nothing is sexier than intelligence , not class . But maybe true class requires intelligence so it might not be so contradictory .
And Ms or Mrs Hansen if you ever read this , you are more than welcome to spend a weekend at my grand mother and great grand mother's house in London and relieve us from decades of clothing , i thing the oldest pieces we have date back to the Victorian era and i mean 1850s . Except for the wedding dresses and court dresses (old British aristocrats without the stuck stuck up attitude and the broom up our ,.... we have to work for a living) , we would gladly let you pick up anything you want as i don't think it will survive me . My grand mother is old and doesn't care much about clothes she or her mother wore in the 30s and 40s , my mother is a beatnik of the 60s and wears basically organic linen which goes with her vegan diet so she won't mind , and as for me , i am married to another man and at 6,5ft none of the clothes are ever gonna fit and i am not on a journey anyway so i'll stick to male clothes .
We would gladly provide the accommodation for the time it would take you to choose among the many relics we have tried to keep for the past century and a half , and won't ask for a penny as long as you take care of the sending fees to California or the location of your choice .
And we would also equally gladly introduce you to friends whom i am sure would not object to parting with some of their oldies .
Antiques made of wood ceramic metal , stone etc are easy to keep as they require no maintenance , except a good polishing and dusting once in a while , but clothing , shoes and other pieces of accessories require a lot more care , and a lot more energy so , you would truly do a favour to the people, especially here in the UK or Friend of ours in France who are living like hoarders because they feel bad about throwing things with sentimental value or somehow attached to their family, but also spend a pretty penny every year to keep it all free from mold and insects or try to just protect them from the passage of time (those old houses are not the best place to keep clothes in optimum conditions). I would especially be ever so grateful to anyone taking these furs away. I may be a vet and a vegan but my grand mother and her ancestors were most certainly not and for them animals were something to eat or wear , end of the story so sadly , there are furs and skin of the most exotic and sometimes extinct species on the planet. Something i don't take any pride in owning but can never bring myself to throw as it would be even more cruel , so if at least anyone wants to wear or use these and take them off my hands and sight i would gladly give them away if it can spare even the life of even one animal alive today . But i will not give them to anyone who deals in fur feathers or skins, i will only gladly give them to a vintage shop like yours .
If you want to contact me here , i will later on give you an email address you can contact me and see where we can go from there .
The offer is serious and honest .
Now to the other people out there , if you are not this lady or do not run a shop like this or are not ready to come collect things directly in the UK, do not send me any request please . And i am not opening my grand mother's house for people who want to browse for days and leave with three pieces . Come with boxes, ready to pack and send and evidences that you are not trying to inject more fur on the market . We have been contacted by countless fur dealers who know that the old British and French aristocratic houses are filled with rare and impossible to find furs from even extinct species , and every time we have declined the offer and i personally walked them out of the property , explaining to them that i'd more easily skin them alive than sell them anything .
So vintage shop owners only and you can be sure i will double check everything about your business activity and its affiliations .
But you Lady Hansen , have carte blanche , because i truly love your genuine passion for vintage clothing. And you clearly do not solely do it for the financial aspect of the business , but evidently take great joy in the activity itself . And something tells me that you are not unfamiliar with gay entourage !
If any of you are my size and want to swap or but clothes off of me dm me on my Instagram (@ww0twc) I have tons of 1920 French Quarter attire because my family is Creole and lived in New Orleans. I also have French Vogue style clothes, etc.
That lady is so "up" it would be exhausting to be around her for more than a few minutes at a time; imo opinion anyway. And even though I do love the collection she's created she lost me when she turned her nose up at 80's fashion.
