Jonesing for Vintage

Looking for vintage gloves on Ebay was like opening a can of worms. "Wow....I haven't been on Ebay in a while....wonder what they have for vintage cashmere sweaters....I'll just take a quick look." Bad idea! I am now yearning for about ten different sweaters, ranging in prices from $15-$550.

If you like cashmere I urge you to go vintage. The fabric is sooooo much nicer quality than today's cashmere, they just hold up like a dream. And you get that great 1950s sweater-girl fit too! I was hooked after Andrew gave me a lovely little reddish orange cardigan for my birthday two years ago. It is one of favorite items in my wardrobe, foolproof on days when I feel blah and need something cozy and sweet to cheer me up.

For some reason I am now drawn to these ultra glamorous fur-collar sweaters. Though I wish they were faux fur instead.....what's the socially conscious stance on vintage fur, I wonder.....?
