Today I was looking on ebay for random vintage loveliness and I came across a couple of Modes et Travaux magazines from the 1950′s. I already have several but I have a problem and just can’t seem to stop… which led to me seriously diminishing my paypal account, and writing a blog post to make myself feel less guilty. I mean, I’m doing it for the blog, right? It’s practically a public service… or so I’ll tell my husband if he asks.

I started the post over on A Few Threads Loose with just a few gems from my collection like these:

And then I just kept going. There’s a lot of frilly, fancy eye candy and you can see more here.
