A little vintage stock purchase and a bit of a social commentary

This Wednesday I made a small stock purchase of about 120 pieces. More lingerie from the same source as before, some blouses and sweaters, purses, a few hats and some other little odds-n-ends.
There were some pretty 1960s printed blouses including an alphabet print Vera and a few silks. Also a few cottony Summer tops that I need to get washed right away and ready for the website before Summer passes us by. Click images for larger views.


The slips were fantastic as before, in some really great colors and pretty laces -


Plus there were a bunch of unworn bras and panties, many wrapped in it's own bag by the previous owner. Here's a peek at some of the panties including a closer view of the sheer black panties with fringe, because I know you want a closer look at them! The bras are also pretty colors and prints (no photo) all sz34A



This Monday's update is already done (Day dresses, tops, sweaters, slips) so you won't start to see anything from this fresh lot until the following website update. All that I kept for myself was a cute white sweater with embroidered bows. Good girl.


Nicole Richie gives Diane Sawyer an exclusive interview - what kind of a wacko world do we live in where this is important news? How has this girl achieved a level of fame where she gives an 'exclusive' interview to talk about being pregnant and irresponsible (and I don't mean getting pregnant is irresponsible, I mean her DUI and other various problems) She is a celebu-child, party girl disaster and yet she is being treated like someone who is important or interesting. She's not a world leader, or a living legend or on the level of intrigue that Jackie O or Princess Diana were to some people. She's not even someone who has anything vaguely interesting or entertaining to talk about.
Her exclusive story belongs on the Jerry Springer or Maury Povich shows. P.S., Diane Sawyer, your 'credibility' and 'integrity' as a 'serious journalist' has just dropped another several pegs with this story (but don't worry, you're still above Barbara Walters) Sure, the story of these girls and the stupid things that they do can be very entertaining. But entertaining in a 'Stupid Things That People Do' kind of story that you would see at the END of the news, not as the lead-in story on major networks news or on all the serious news channels.
I cannot believe that young girls/women actually admire this crowd of walking disasters. They have to be smarter than that, they cannot aspire to live lives like that. Forget about the partying, fame and riches. I'm talking about the celebu-tards' attitude towards other people and their seemingly overblown idea of their own importance in the world. Great hair and designer clothing does not mean you can be irresponsible and inconsiderate of other people. They really seem to believe that any publicity is good publicity - no matter how stupid it makes them look.
I think the problem with all of them is that no one has ever told them 'NO' They've been allowed to do whatever they want all their lives with apparently not much guidance or limitations. Plus some of these girls have been the cash cows, the golden ticket, for their parents to better their owns lives with. So no one is going to say no in that situation and risk cutting off their own cash flow.
It is kind of a shame. But we shouldn't have to suffer by being hit constantly with stories of their antics. It used to be that you only saw those stories on the entertainment shows - easy to change the channel. But when you tune in to the 'serious' news channels to maybe hear stories about what's going on in the rest of the world, and instead you get hit with this crap, it's just too much.

Gosh, I sound like an old fuddy-duddy. I think I'm worked up over it because it seems like you just cannot escape from these girls and I can't understand why the media thinks that people are so interested in hearing about them.

I agree with you 100 percent. Which is why I rarely watch tv news. Just the NYT for me.

there's nothing more sad than someone whose life is a wreck bringing a baby into the world. if they can't take care of themselves how can they take care of a baby?

I like your take on the Nicole exclusive, very funny. If young women really admire those type of Hollywood party girls, then feminism has just taken another kick in the balls and the future looks pretty bleak. They think they can do whatever they want and then just make up some stupid excuse or expect special treatment. I can't understand why the media is so stuck on covering these stories non-stop

The party girls are annoying, but I'd rather hear about them than about Angelina Jolie and her big bag of bullshit, saving the world.
