A Few Thoughts
2. How the heck did I get 100 lovely DeluxeVille followers?? How cool is that?? I would have to say very cool! I would like to say a big Thank You to everyone who takes time out of their busy schedules to take a gander at my ramblings and leave comments! I think having 100 fabulous DeluxeVille followers is a reason to celebrate and I will be taking this into consideration the next few days as I am sitting through meeting after boring meeting at work! All I will say is major awards/prizes will be given out shortly ...stay tuned for further details.

EDIT: I just went back and checked the Whirling Turban site and discovered these instructions to help adjust the cup size...which is my problem!
"Cookies" are small push up pads that are sometimes put into a removable pocket in the lower part of a bra or else can be purchased by themselves (well, in a pair) in a well-stocked bra or foundations department.
They are not “falsies”. They are about the size of a small cookie (imagine that!) and all they do is to push some of the flesh curve on the under side of your breast to the upper side of your breast, so that the breast clings attractively to the upper part of the bodice.
Push up pads do the same thing but just tend to be a bit larger. They have different shapes, some also pushing both the outer lower breast AND the middle lower breast up.
The best thing to do is to try them on with our dresses, since we do our best to design our “BUILT” bodices so that they are both the dress and the bra. Take that dress right into the foundation department, ask the clerk for some push up pads and cookies, and go in the fitting room to and see what works best for you with the dress.
Whirlingturban assures you (with considerable authority) that this is what makes the Hollywood glamour queens what they are (or appear to be.) It’s that little bit of extra effort and expertise more than it is “extra generosity doled out to certain dolls from That Big Production Line In The Sky”!
So, take the time and invest in your shelf!
And don’t forget to use tiny safety pins or hand tack those cookies or pads in place in your dress before nights of abandon on the town!

The Box Boys
I hope I can find a good home for them as I would really like to keep them together.

More Aunt Dot
Sunday, August 9, 2009
Top: Black Peasant top/ Mode Merr
Skirt: Tiki Hawaiian Vintage Wrap skirt /Memories
Shoes: Black Wedge with Flower/ Anthropologie
Jewelry: Bakelite Bangles, West Germany fruit necklace
The Weather: Tropical, so humid I can't breath!
Mad Hatter: Part Two
The Mad Hatter: Part One
The first is a vintage clothing shop, like you're so surprised at this one, called Memories. The shop is owned by Diane Impink. Some of you WWII folks might know Diane as she also rents out an air plane hanger during the WWII Weekend at Reading. Here's the sad news, Diane sells nothing online, the only place you can buy her vintage wares are at the air show or at her shop. I have known Diane for many years and I keep telling her she needs to open an online shop but she laughs and tells me she doesn't even own a computer. I will tell you something else about Diane, she has storage units full of vintage clothing and her shop is so packed with things that it can be a bit overwhelming. I've been trying to get Diane to adopt me but so far no luck!
Memories.... A very basic website.

Happy Birthday Aunt Dot
Sassy Aunt Dot...photo by my cousin Sheri (she's sassy like aunt Dot too!)
Aunt Dot in 1915... (she has the big bow in her hair) Aunt Catherine is on the end.
My great great grandmother Catherine (McGarrity?) DeVine... Aunt Dot on the right with a hair bow again. Aunt Catherine on the left, my grandfather is the youngest in this picture (but not the youngest child), and my uncle Ed, front and center (I will always miss him) Not sure of the date: early 1900's. I wonder what story Great Great Grandma is reading??

Vintage Joann! Owned by none other then JoAnn Slaugh.... oh and by the way JoAnn, I LOVE your hair color! But what can I say DeluxeVille readers, I'm partial to redheads! Okay, back to vintage shopping. I have visited VJ many times and have always found a wonderful mix of vintage and modern vintage inspired items to pick through. Oh, and this past time, JoAnn had a basket of free rice krispie treats to munch on as you shop. Hello, yes I said free... who does that anymore? Of course I had to have one! Vintage JoAnn's is located in a very cute Victorian house and offers a wonderful, charming shopping experience. Whenever I visit, I just want to sit and relax in one of her oversized, fluffy chairs with the cat or the dog and read a book as I eat rice krispie treats! It's like a complete vintage, girly, zen experience. Oh, and trust me, there's no way you won't find one, two, three or four things to buy!
