Quick Debriefing, Bill Blass

Hello everyone - I've been on hiatus (again) because what with the holidays, moving, obsessing over politics and overloading on classes, I haven't had much time to blog.

Besides, the weather here in the Pacific Northwest is frigid and icy, so my sartorial leanings are all towards warmth and comfort rather than attractiveness.

Today I took a walk to the local charity shop where everything was half off. I found a pair of Bill Blass, new with tags, extremely high-waisted jeans - I mean, two inches above the bellybutton high-waisted. I mean Farrah Fawcett in her heyday high-waisted. These jeans must be from 1976, and I have no idea why they've never been worn. They're spectacular, and I'll post pictures as soon as I can.

Hope everyone's enjoying 2008.

xoxo,
Ailsa

It's just an American Cancer Society shop! It's run by little old ladies and mostly stocks really awful polyester stuff, but once in a great while I find amazing stuff - lots of big gold jewelry, vintage Ferragamos... and now, vintage Bill Blass!
