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!

BIG Changes at Posh Girl Vintage
- Under New Management
- Now Accepting Paypal
- New Website Redesign
- A ton of new clothing!
We’d like to introduce you to Emma. She’s the new manager here at Posh Girl Vintage.
She started out as the talent behind Posh Girls new web site makeover heading up all the art work as well as the website coding and shopping improvements. She has since decided to take over running Posh Girl after falling in love with vintage fashion and of course our great collection we have here. Brigitte had to step down due to health issues so Emma was the perfect fit. So much love and passion for well made vintage clothing has gone into Posh Girl Vintage, we didn’t want just anyone taking over. Emma could not be a better choice!
Emma’s background is art, mostly graphic design & photography. She hails from Oklahoma where she went to school, but has also lived & studied in New York, San Francisco, and a brief stint in Vegas working as a black jack dealer.
Photography, art museums, and fashion are her main obsessions along with her little weenie dog Mildred.
She’ll be handling all the customer service from now on so if you have any questions please feel free to email her: email@example.com
For my birthday this past Sept 30th, a good friend took me to see the History Of Fashion exhibit here in Los Angeles at LACMA, my favorite local museum. I recommend at least an entire day. It’s huge, at least 3 stories & numerous buildings holding 100,000 objects dating from ancient times to the present. It’s the largest art museum in the western United States. But before we got started on the museum we had lunch at their restaurant located in the central courtyard, Pentimento. It’s one of my favorite places to eat in all of Los Angeles. I’m a bit of a food snob too so my standards are pretty high. We sat outside on a beautiful relaxing sunny day. Their salads are amazing, but I’ve never had anything there that wasn’t great. I had their warm pear salad with caramelized walnuts and goat cheese and a decafe iced mocha, Donnel had a bowl of their homemade chilli. Both were great!
On to the clothing…I shot these photos with my trusty iPhone. I also had my 1952 Rolleiflex with me but that’s black and white and too slow of a process to post on a blog. Some of the photos are a bit grainy and blurry, no flash was allowed. They don’t compare, of course, to the beauty in person of the fine fabrics and quality workmanship. Truly an art form. If you can make it to LACMA you should see the clothing in person.
Another reason this show should be seen in person is the scale. They’re all so tiny. It’s a step back in time. You can almost feel as if you’re standing next to the people who wore them so long ago. I’m used to the vintage clothing I sell at Posh Girl being small, because all humans were smaller back then due to our diets that are heavy in protein and fat that has increased over the years, but people were even smaller all those many years ago. Short and thin. The average mannequin was about aprox 4’10″or so. Even the men’s clothing were not much taller or bigger than the women’s. Allot of the items were French, who tend to be shorter anyway, even now. I went to Paris for my 29 th birthday and at 5’3″ I actually felt average to a bit tall. It was really nice!
I’ll add more photos over a few days or weeks. The collection was pretty large.
We also love informal and non traditional dresses for weddings, especially the 60’s vintage shift or mini dress. So cute and modern for those young fashionista’s out there. Sweet and simple they look great for country or urban settings when you add the right accessories. These are just a few we love!
Here’s another adorable Posh Girl Vintage customer and media girl in one of our favorite 60’s vintage dresses. That Vespa is cool too.
2 photos one of my customers sent in wearing her vintage prom dress she bought here at Posh girl Vintage. She’s just gorgeous and the photography is too! Well done!
I came across these amazing fashion photos from the 1960’s and had to share. The 60’s and 1920’s are my 2 favorite decades. There’s nothing like vintage designer clothing from the late 60’s! Even the early 70’s was just so sexy and pure art for designers and music alike. Music, obviously, heavily influenced fashion at that time. There are a few Pucci outfits here along with Givenchy and other famous designers of that time. I have much more and will keep posting them today & over the next few days.
This vintage clothing & modern designer clothing mix was done by a girl on Polyvore.com… We love that site… So much fun! She used our 1950’s vintage black leather opera length gloves for this sexy Kate Moss mix. We love mixing vintage clothing with modern pieces, especially designer clothing & dresses. This mix is a great example.
