...for a vintage clothing seller is seeing someone wearing something that you've sold them! This is the lovely Elaine, who looks absolutely smashing in this vintage oversize houndstooth print 1950s dress that she purchased from Small Earth.
Y'know, I always kind of pooh pooh the idea that clothing must be seen on a live model. I'm very happy using my mannequin and dress form...until I see a photo like this! She is adorable and I cannot imagine anyone (or any mannequin, certainly!) making the dress look any better.
Thank you, Elaine, for allowing me to post this. Oh, and if you want to see this photo more clearly you can visit it
here on Elaine's Flickr photostream, where she not only models some other Small Earth Vintage garments (*love* her holiday party shots wearing our mustard sheath dress and a fabulous fascinator!), but also has the most beautiful vacation photos of Switzerland and Greece that fill me with the a huge longing to travel.
