ckparis and the rabbit hole

hey all, what are you doing? tell me...

well, i discovered a fun, new vintage shop in the 'nana called the rabbit hole.
can you believe it?

i was perusing the shelves and stumbled upon a black lace meshy item labeled
"mysterious vintage item" $3.00.
complete with a small clear plastic ring device.
right out of alice and wonderland...

i asked tya, the store owner, what it was. she kinda shook her head.
immediate purchase.
with a label like that, it was a fourth dimension play item.
ok, any ideas what the mysterious vintage item was used for?

i tried it on as a tube top layering piece and as a skirt layering piece.
a black lace ruffle peaking out for here or there?
works as a circular scarf or a cute belt.

somewhere in the depths of my mind i recalled something...
once upon a time in a not too distant time was a place called miami beach n/k/a SOBE.
a place where little old ladies congregated on porches wearing ...
curler covers!!!
yup, the mystery is solved, tya.
can't wait to come play dress up in your store soon.
the rabbit hole is filled with fun energy that can take you straight to the fourth.

see you on the astral plane.

Well, if it works as a skirt, I won't say anything. ;)

tya said...

Ahhhhhhhhh. I kind of like how you put it on random parts of your body :) It sure feels good to know. Thanks for solving the mystery!

What a found! It does make your day, doesn't it? And the best things are not so costly, or you can equally assemble more and less expensive items. I'm sure you'll have fun figuring it all out;)

it is just as fun to check out the energy in second hand stores as it is the stuff they're selling.
yes, i'm old enough to remember south beach with the porches full of older ladies with heads full of rollers!
i believe it is now illegal to wear rollers in SOBE.
