Jonesin' for Jim!

Maxine is ready to grab her surfboard and be the talk of the beach today in her stunning, one-of-a-kind JIM MORRISON/THE DOORS Hard Rock Hotel board shorts!! I've never seen anything quite like them - if they fit me, I swear I'd keep them all for myself! They don't have tags so I can't truly call them new old stock, but they don't appear to have ever been worn!

These awesome shorts feature a velcro and drawstring waist, and a coin pocket in back with The Doors logo on it. The shorts are a little lighter than they appear in the pics - they are navy blue on the waistline, and lighter blue and a sky-blue on the rest of them. The back of the shorts read "Hard Rock Hotel Orlando" on the waistband.

Bathing suit not included in this listing, but just convo me if you're interested in it.

The shorts are marked a size 7, but please refer to the measurements below to ensure a proper fit:

Waist: 16.5" (double, could be pulled smaller due to drawstring)
Hip: 18 3/4" (double)
Inseam: 3.5"
Outer length: 11"
Rise: 8 3/4"

Wonderful Tonight

As I was dressing Maxine in this gorgeous gown, I was singing along with Clapton's "Wonderful Tonight." Couldn't help myself! Maxine doesn't appreciate my singing, but she can't walk, so what's she going to do about it?

Anyway, this dress has no tags so I'm going to assume it's handmade, and whoever sewed it was a talented seamstress! It features a scoop neckline and a flattering wide bottom sweep. In the fourth photo, I taped the dress so you can see how full the skirt is - it would look fantastic with a long crinoline underneath (and I recommend wearing a slip underneath, but that's totally up to you!) The pattern is baby blue and white, and it has silver threads running throughout.

Based on measurements, I believe this dress could best fit a modern M to L, but please refer to the actual meas. listed below to ensure a proper fit:

Shoulder: 15"
Bust: 17.5" (double)
Waist: 19" (double)
Hip: Open
Sleeve: 21"
Length: 51.5" shoulder to hem

Necklace not included.

Hipsters in Spain!

These two adorable sweaters are moving to Spain!  I just sold them on my Etsy site, but the one in the photos below is still available - it's a size medium, and it's at a very reasonable price!

Over a Dozen New Etsy Vintage Listings!


Ah...the good ol' days...Maxine hails a cab and heads downtown to her office job - she slips into the elevator and quickly powders her nose in its mirrored walls...she feels confident and powerful in her *stunning* and RARE three-piece outfit by the famous Henry-Lee! Time to make coffee for that demanding boss of hers...

This outfit includes a dress, jacket, and coordinating belt - the dress features a tobacco-brown bodice with a spiffy tie at the neckline, and the skirt is done in a textured heavy poly knit of brown, blue, and white. The coordinating jacket is done in the same pattern as the skirt, and boasts gorgeous soutache trim down the bodice, on the pockets, and on the sleeves (see photos). One of the sharpest features on this outfit is the navy blue shiny belt - it has no holes so it's completely adjustable for comfort, and it can be worn on the dress or outside the jacket!

The only issue with this outfit is that one of the buttons on the left wrist (see pic 2) is missing its little gold "ring" but other than that, it's still in excellent vintage condition!

This outfit is marked a vintage size 16, and in my estimation it could fit a modern 10/12, but please refer to all measurements listed below:

Shoulders: 15"
Bust: Open - no buttons
Waist: Open - no buttons
Hip: Open - no buttons
Sleeve: 22"
Length: 24.5"

Shoulder: 16"
Bust: 20" (double)
Waist: 16.5" (double)
Hip: 19.5" (double)
Length: 41"

Belt: 38.5" long
