To continue on my last post about What Queen Wore. Here’s a photo of the band Queen from the early 1970’s. Roger’s wearing the coolest black leather shirt jacket, a lot like this one we had, shown here without it’s belt. It also was made in England. The label read: “Ian Mankin, Made In England, Eric Ross & Co”. We’ve also had a few of those floppy hippie hats like Roger’s wearing. Then there’s Brian May ( genius extraordinaire ) wearing a classic pinstripe 1940’s style jacket. We’ve had many of these over the years & always will. These pinstripe jackets & suits will look amazing forever & ever, they just simply do not go out of style…ever!

I’m a huge Queen fan! But I especially LOVE Freddie Mercury. He was/is the sexiest man ever… in my opinion. I’m not sure yet if past lives are real but if they are, I must have been a gay man in one of my past lives. Freddie has that magical charisma that I know still lives on, it’s just not in his old packaging. He’s still in the multiverse somewhere! I also love most of the clothes he & the other guys of Queen used to wear in the early days. The 1970’s were one of the coolest & sexiest decades for clothing & oh how I’d LOVE to own a T-shirt or jacket that Freddie or one of the guys used to wear!
After looking online one day at some old photos of Queen & the 1970’s, I noticed that I had a few pieces of vintage clothing in my shop that looked a lot like or exactly like, some of the clothing Queen wore in these old photos. Especially the black & ivory floral jacket & the black spandex pants I saw Freddie wearing in many different photos. Also, Roger -I love his sense of humor & evil little laugh – looks amazing in a black leather shirt jacket that’s in another pic (I’ll post it next). So I picked out some clothing items from my shop & put them together below with a few old photos of Queen & Freddie.
I send out a big THANK YOU & lots of LOVE to you Freddie, where ever you are!
PS… I want to mention a cute blog I stumbled across while researching for this post. I had this idea before I saw this blog, but since we had very similar ideas I want to make sure to give them a nod. I really like what they did: What Freddie Wore.

Saving the best for last…it was a nice surprise to see at the end of the LACMA exhibit these very rare and wonderful pieces of clothing. Over 100 year old fetish boots, lingerie and corsets. The workmanship is unbelievable. I’ve been collecting vintage lingerie and fetish shoes and clothing for 20 years. So these boots are impossible to find unless you’re a very wealthy & connected collector.
I was lucky enough to acquire a few fetish stiletto heels & boots from the 40’s and 50’s when I modeled for a few fetish wear catalogs when I was 20. One being the famous Pleasure Chest in Hollywood Cal. I got to rummage around a very old storage room that had some really old boxes of clothing. I was given some shoes, boots and a few corsets to take home. They just thought they were junk but I knew better! I’ll post some photographs of a few pieces from my collection here in the upcoming days or weeks. So check back.
I came across this beautiful vintage photo from the 50’s. The dresses are gorgeous!
