Yeah, baby!


The Vintage Fair is so lagged that shopping is impossible. People are going there just to bitch and moan. But when the crowds thin, or the organizers figure out how to eject people wearing too many scripts, you’ll be able to get your groovy on with TuttiFrutti’s fun new mini-collection of pants, hotpants, belts, ties and blouses. Bela Tolsen was kind enough to send me samples, so I mixed and matched, scoured my inventory for the right hair and skin, and resisted the temptation to go searching for a cream patent loafer. And some hash. And a boyfriend wearing a velvet suit with a flounced cravat. I don’t know where these associations come from, but Austin Powers is probably to blame.

The Lovely Rita blouse comes with its own plain tie and belt, but you could sub in one of the patterned ties that can be bought separately or an out-of-sight necklace like this one from Pepper. (I looked for one with a peace symbol, but only for a nanosecond.) The blouse collars and the ties are resizeable for those of you who just aren’t happening enough to wear ’em big and wide. If you want to do retro looks using items from the fair, keep in mind that you won’t find everything you need there. I recommend that you take a look at Seraphim’s 350 photos of the available items and then shop other stores for accessories so that you will be ready when you do finally get to go to the fair, which is open throughout November.
