The fine art of fashion

Blythe Marks Is the Internet’s Most Colorful Vintage Vendor

“A ’40s dress with scratch-and-sniff sticker vibes. This piece is an early ’40s wool-shelly weave gown. It healthy me flawlessly, but I just ended up not obtaining it simply because I never have to have any a lot more ’40s shirtwaist dresses. This was $120, so half off that was $60. To get a 1940s costume with the belt, which is skillfully dry cleaned and not damaged, is insane.”

“A late ’60s Geoffrey Beene camel hair princess coat. A single-term descriptor from Erich Kessel, a single of my most classy buddies: ‘Espionage’. I end up acquiring a great deal of outerwear, especially in the summer time, from Antique Sugar for the reason that nobody in Arizona is looking for outerwear in the summer. This is ’60s Geoffrey Beene and it was $90. I place it back again since it was just so itchy for me. I think for actually any person else who doesn’t have my delicate Ashkenazi pores and skin, it would be ideal! To get a ’60s Geoffrey Beene coat for $90 and then half off for $45 bucks is unheard of.”

“’80s rabbit fur BITCH coat. Demna Gvasalia found wigless and shaking. The purple jacket is a label from Canada in the ’80s. There is this other Canadian furrier named Zuki that produced these like sheared beaver and rabbit fur coats in the eighties that are amazingly high priced and have intarsia. I thought this was one of them, but it was a different Canadian manufacturer, so I was close.”

“A ’70s JCPenney browsing vacation on acid. It is a cropped, ’70s, pumpkin-orange jacket and all it did was hook at the neck. I observed it and paired it with this skirt and I was like, this is so absurd and Instagram. Like any individual would claw their eyes out to get this glance.”
