I have been finding more vintage clothing to get exited about, sorry have’nt found out how to add photos, however, they can be found on my ebay karenbailey19632013. There is a gorgeous summer dress 1970’s folk floral piece by European label, Kleemeier Hof.

60/70’s

You may be in a heatwave and not needing a coat, however ,when Autumn comes or ‘Fall’ as our friends say in the U.S. what will be your wardrobe staples? Have a look it this lovely orange tweed cape, freesize, fully lined , I am picturing a full outfit and the song ‘kinky boots’ comes to mind, (I think from an actress in the Vintage T.V series, The Avengers). Find this on my ebay, there is a great mod, jockey hat too, if you have a small hat size.
