"Who dares, wins," they say, so why not take your style to new heights this fall with our breathtaking vintage Evelyn Varon chapeau? Of cinnamon-colored "doeskin" wool felt, it's gracefully shaped in a sort of cross between a fedora, a cloche and a Garbo slouch. A lavish wheel of feathers accented by pearls adorns the longer side -- the better for casting flirtatious glances beneath...

By Fenn Wright & Manson, one of England's leaders in special occasion fashions since the 1970s, this dreamy see-through jacket of coral organza combines a look of pure romance with all the proper details. Notice the shapely seaming, graceful lapels and double cuffs with shimmering faux-moonstone buttons in a slightly lighter shade of melon.

Sheer jackets of this type, tied on with enormous bows, were style essentials in Europe during the late 1980s and very early 1990s...

Worthy of the gals in "Grease," this outfit is just what you need for any fifties-style event -- or just for the fun of wearing Retro. The skirt's a full circle of metallic patterned fabric so crisp it can stand up by itself and the jacket is a classic zip-on windbreaker, also very crisp. I doubt these treasures have been worn more than a couple of times, if that.

The skirt is ballerina-length (30 inches) on a 26-inch buttoned waistband with zipper below...

Most of us avoid new furs now -- I haven't bought any for more than 30 years -- but I can't justify leaving vintage pieces to rot, unworn. They're warm, for one thing, and we still find them beautiful or faux-fur wouldn't be so popular.

It would be a great pity to waste a hat as glamorous as this towering pile of fluff. The look is positively Zhivago! And it covers your entire head, all the way down to the nape of your neck, so nothing could be cozier...

Although many of us wouldn't buy new furs now, to avoid encouraging the trade, making good use of vintage pieces strikes me as both ethical and sensible.

If you agree that their warmth shouldn't be wasted, this fluffy mid-century chapeau may appeal to you. It dates from the 1950s or early 1960s, but is in pristine condition. Even its lining is beautiful, made of luxurious black fabric that's ridged like grosgrain ribbon.

Size is on the small side...

Like many people, I've had second thoughts about furs. I wouldn't personally buy, sell or wear new ones (despite defending the rights of those who do). Where I part company with the anti-fur purists is when it comes to vintage pieces. Making good use of them strikes me as both ethical and sensible.

If you agree that their warmth shouldn't go to waste, this vintage headband may appeal to you. The fur is soft and supple, with luster and without tears...

Evening bags by Mayor are definitely not thick on the ground. I wasn't able to locate any others online - besides which ours is perfect, apparently never used and still snapped into its glamorous burgundy case of velvety suede that bears the maker's name and logo. The heavy metal mesh is as supple as fabric and lined with ivory silk...

It makes me feel old to call 1980's vintage but I think it works with this one which just off the chart on the Richter Scale of coolness. The jacket is typical 80's Levi and the entire thing is covered in superb artwork, patches and pins. Just as proof that our man here was well rounded the right sleeve has a long Metallica patch and the left side of the back has three smaller patches. Everything else is all K.I.S.S. and the hand done portrait work on the back is fabulous (Image 2). There are mu...

Great resource. Unstated first edition paperback published by Harmony House in 1975. The cover shows some wear... an area in the corner probably had a label ( it's sticky)..otherwise this highly collectible book is in fine condition.
