The Latest: San Diego, eBay, H&M




Do you remember last weeks posting when I was asking how to wear my vintage slips without actually wearing the slip as a dress? Lucky me - I discovered that H&M has gorgeous wrap dresses that are the perfect length to layer with the slips. The lace peeks through at the neckline, and you see just a 'smidge' of the lace underneath. This look is pretty, feminine and oh so sexy. Not to mention you can just throw it on and update your accessories for a variety of looks.The H&M dress is a bargain at $17.95 and available in a myriad of colors. Sorry - no online sales available. 




In case you're curious - my store on eBay is doing quite well. I'm still amazed at the items that sell and where I ship them too. This haul includes packages destined for Iceland, Singapore, Russia, Canada and Africa. Even though I've been gone for a week with military training- today's mail run is 14 packages! Not too shabby, right? Customers have been very considerate with the delayed shipping - and some even send well-wishes to show their support. 


Exciting news! Mr. C and I are bound for sunny San Diego for all expense paid trip with the Yellow Ribbon Program - courtesy of the US Government. This trip is for all military members that deploy in support of the war. Incredible, right? We were originally going to go to Santa Fe, New Mexico in January - but the timing was poor and we opted for San Diego instead.  


I have fresh posts lined up while we're traveling - tomorrow's feature is RECYCLED FASHION!

That's a great idea about the wrap dress with a contrasting slip - hope to see a photo of you working it!
Well done with the sales - I find Ebay so hit and miss, it's really frustrating...
Enjoy your trip. xxx

Good news with ebay, all those sales add up. I was born and raised in San Diego and all my family is there. I have a recommendation for cocktails check out the Starlite on India street, throw back to the 50's, dark sexy and killer drinks. Best place for breakfast is Hash-a Go Go in Hillcrest. Have fun!

Boy, I'd DIE if H&M were that cheap here. As it is I have to walk through the store with my eyes on the floor to avoid temptation.

Never been to San Diego, but Santa Fe is yummy. Or it was the last time I was there with Gorgeous Husband. What it's like now is anyone's guess, although I imagine it's still full of coyete images and cowboy boots.

All the best, Rosemary from England
