I caught up with Karen from Vintage Love Affair at Judy’s Affordable Vintage Fair earlier this year. This turquoise jewelled coloured dress caught my eye and I asked her where she bought it. She told me that around 13 years ago she went on her first trip to New York and was given $100 to spend. She was in downtown Manhattan and her eye caught the striking colour of the dress hanging in a shop window. She asked the shop assistant how much it was and it came to the same amount of dollars burning a hole in her pocket. It is 100% silk and made in India and yet found in New York. Karen decided to let it go and is now selling it on to make room for more of her vintage clothes in her wardrobe.
