Zandra Rhodes for your consideration





At first I thought this gown was a knock off of Zandra Rhodes original textile design. But upon better inspection I found it to be an authentic ZR piece. Upon even further inspection I found it to be listed for a rather high price on the “first dibs” website. I am intrigued to see what an ebay buyer would be willing to pay, so I listed the gown there. I still have 7 days left on this auction but I can't wait to find out how much I can earn to help abandoned cats with this pretty gown! Liz over at Vintage a Peel owns the holy grail of ZR items, a lipstick print pair of trousers that are currently in an exhibition in London no less! And being the historian extraordinaire that she is, you may also view a scan of the original magazine editorial image from 1969 on her blog as well!

  8. レイバン サングラスが一番似合いそうなのは誰というアンケート、BIOSPHIAのオフィシャルサイトであった。早速考えてみたが、メンバーみんな、それぞれ違ったレイバン モデルが似合うではないか!夕紀さんだったら、レイバンclubmasterがピッタリだし、歴くんがaviatorが似合いそう。
