It must be lovely to be a cat.
On the other hand, the fact that human garment styles keep changing over time has its perks too.
For example: Human clothing can be enjoyed at interesting place such as "Decades".
Vintage (before 1950), Retro (1950-1990s) and Contemporary (the last ten years...) clothing is just plain fun to see. I had been rubbernecking this store front on my way to work (late as always....never time to stop) the past three months. Before that I kept hearing "You ought to go to Decades, you would love it!"
So...on my way home on my short work day last Thursday I made a point of finally going in to the store for a look-see.
Deciding which classic diamond broach I liked best....
(FYI: My Dallas based friend Bonita informed me of this little tidbit of good etiquette: if you are wearing a clear colorless jewel, you are wearing a diamond. If the jewel is a genuine diamond, then you say it is a "real" diamond. Thanks to Bonita, I can now say that my diamond jewelry collection is quite extensive!)
And then...swoon...there were the hats!
Hats formed a border all around the shop's ceiling, and there were several large hat displays and hat stands as well.
This heavily beaded silk dress is from the 1920's.
Twenty three skiddoo...bring on the spit curls!
(The dress was for sale at the unbelievable price of $80. Or at least that was what I was told...)
(I'm very, very tempted to go back and get this set!)
I took quite a few pictures inside the shop...and only at the end of my visit was I informed that taking pictures was not permitted.
Pretend you didn't see any of these pictures, OK??? OK!
