Did you have a wall phone when you were growing up?
We had a very heavy bakelite phone that actually gave the arm muscles a workout
if we chatted for too long.
My father was quite strict about the telephone
we had an egg timer with sand in it to let us know when our chat time was up.
I used to flip the timer over before all the sand ran out to extend my calls...
the main reason for limiting conversations were because we had a "party line."
A party line was a shared connection with someone else in our neighbourhood...
if they picked up their phone they could listen into our conversation and visa versa!
Can you imagine?
There were no secrets unless we spoke in code!

The company Maison Pourchet, has been in business in Paris since the early 1900's.
It is still in business today and you can find many of their classic vintage bags online.
Black and white skirt picked up at the thrift shop.
I have a small basic wardrobe that has a lot of black and white pieces
so this will be a very versatile skirt.

casual or dressy.
Paired it with my distressed denim jacket
black vintage Susan Bristol dressy knit sweater...
I have numerous options.
Sparkly Vintage Canadian designed Sherman rhinestone brooch.
I have several of these brooches and add them when I feel I need a dash of bling.
Mom received several Sherman sets for Christmas from Dad.
They would usually be earrings, a bracelet and necklace...
set in a velvet box from Birks.
The sparkle was perfect with her bright and festive velvet dresses.
Vintage pieces add an extra zing to my classic neutral wardrobe.
When I am in a thrift shop I gravitate to the vintage section...
I keep an open mind
you never know what you'll find!
Good Luck and Happy Shopping.
