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...

Rediscovered as old store stock in the 1970s, these adorable Mary Janes from the flapper era entered my personal collection then, along with several other pairs. I've worn them only a few times, so they're still practically pristine. Notice how cute the buttons that close the straps are; I think they're Bakelite. I love the subtle taupe and tan color combo, too.

Size is about a U.S. ladies' 5, so these are for you if you're a Cinderella with tiny feet...

This exquisite long-sleeved blouse from Cambridgeshire in England wouldn't look out of place on a Renaissance princess, though it was made to tempt the most privileged Flower Children of the hippie 1960s.

This gossamer beauty pairs beautifully with anything from jeans to an evening skirt and can be worn off the shoulders or not. The bodice is overlaid in front with gorgeously decorated panels of embroidered white eyelet and beading mesh...

Crisp as new, this colorful vintage apron features a delightful pattern of tall windows filled with potted daisies, plus a wide red band at the bottom and a vine motif above. Length is a little more than 20 inches, plus a waistband nearly two inches wide.

It can't have been worn much, if at all, because the condition is immaculate. Probable dating would be 1940s and provenance is a Texas estate.

Having recently acquired loads of wonderful vintage and antique clothing from a collector who's downsizing, I got inspired to do a bit of the same. These two scarves have languished in my dresser since around 1980, when in a moment of insanity I paid at least $75 for each (on sale) at one of the best shops in town. Despite good intentions, I never got the knack of wearing squares, so it's unlikely I will...

This is one of those pretty sweater clips that girls wore with their twin sweaters in the 1950s. One sweater was a pull over, and the other one was a cardigan which was often worn over the shoulders and held in place by a sweater clip. Most were decorative, as this one is. The pearlized heart shaped ends are decorated with flowers, the chain is imitation pearls and the clips are gold colored. It is in very good condition and has no marks.
