    I think in the short tearm that's how it will have to be worn, you never know what you find when your not looking for it!

    I love the colour of the jacket - beautiful! I find that jackets from the 40s and 50s look just great with jeans, when I haven't got a skirt or dress to wear them with.

    And who hasn't got stuck in a vintage dress... me too :spin:!

    Hi, Pauline! Love the jacket! I wear lots of vintage jackets and mix them with modern. Nice dark jeans and a vintage jacket is my favorite work outfit! :D

    Mixing vintage and modern is a new concept for me lol, I know it's the most practical way for most ladies or you never be able to wear some of your vintage.

    Karin .. And who hasn't got stuck in a vintage dress.:clapping:

    "tuck them into the skirt or not and when I do they pucker up"

    Tuck your blouses into your panty hose / girdle darling. There are also inside belts you can buy, but I don't know the proper term for them or where to buy them.

    And I just had to tell ya that I almost got stuck in a vintage dress at home last nite. That's what I get for coveting the garments I'm supposed to be selling. :BAGUSE:

    Here is the above jacket off the hanger this time,

    I changed my hair shade as it seamed to work better for this jacket and also wearing slightly heavier makeup styles as an experiment.
