    Hello, I am Shelley. I have always been into the history of fashion especially because I do costumes for theatre. I posted a question yesterday about a label in a '64 - '73 mini dress but I may have put it in the wrong forum thread. Anyway sorry if this repeats but I could use some help in identifying this label. I have researched on what I thought it to be Mr. A.W, but I have come up empty handed. Any help would be appreciated! label.jpg

    Hi, I’m Sarah of Shusteroo and I just wanted to introduce myself and say hello! I have been using VFG as my go-to when researching labels for several years now, and I’ve always found it to be an invaluable source of information. I FINALLY got around to registering as a VFG Guest Member at the end of March, but I was a little shy about contributing and remained on the sidelines... I then applied to become a member and was thrilled to be accepted!

    Please excuse the long post, I’ve got a few years to make up for...!

    Firstly, thanks to everyone who helped me during the membership process, and messaged at various stages or gently guided me where necessary, it was much appreciated! Maggie @MagsRags @Linn @Midge and Sunny @Cestsibon

    In addition, thanks also to the members who kindly stopped by and said ‘hello’ in the Newest Member thread, it was so lovely to be welcomed to the fold! Maggie @denisebrain Mary Jane @poppysvintageclothing Susan @northstarvintage Mary @The Vintage Merchant Victoria @Vintagiality Diana @poshthreads @anothertimevintageapparel MS @thespectrum Harriet @Hattysattic Barbara @Rue_de_la_Paix
    *this was great practice, I've definitely got the hang of tagging now!

    Finally, a long overdue “massive thankyou” to EVERYONE at VFG who so generously shares their time and knowledge by contributing to the forums – I’ve been quietly reading and learning from their posts over the years. I’m so excited to be part of the VFG community and to keep learning, progressing and hopefully contributing myself. Now I’ve just got to get my head around Instagram and Pinterest… !

    I got into vintage as an offshoot of having attended WWII living history events in my state (PA). I'm 43 and attended events from 2004-2011.

    I mainly focus on German maritime and my style is "vintage inspired". The period of focus is 1920's-early 30's. I have an interest in what was worn among seafarers of that period and base my style (for the most part) off of that.

    I also live a "vintage lifestyle" to a degree. Not as "hardcore" as some but I live without some of the more commonly used pieces of technology that many own today. So it's a combination of both my style and a way of life for me.

    Hi, I'm Soledad. I've always been fascinated by garments from other times and intrigued by how they felt (how practical or impractical they were for users), and how they evolved. I've joined so I can draw on your expertise to identify a cape-like garment my grandmother wore to fancy events like the opera and such around the time of WWI. According to my mother, my grandma demonstrated how she wrapped and tied it on, and it even formed a hood. I'm sorry if the picture doesn't show it very well, I know this may be a long shot.

    Hi, I'm Salvador or you can call me Sal. I've always been drawn to vintage. I've learned a craft that gives me access to many vintage pieces. I have a weak spot for 30'-50' women pumps & bags. I know for a fact that things were made better, back then.

    Hey. I'm Dave. I'm only here to see if anyone can help me find the origin of my '50s Texaco McBrine Briefcase. If you have any experience with the brand, PLEASE contact me.
