One BIG Halloween look this year is the Mad Men look! Set in the 1960's, we love the everyday and office wear of it's characters. Slimmer silhouettes, pencil skirts for women, skinny lapels and ties for men, when people hear "60s fashion: they often forget that this is the style of most of the 1960s. Think The Dick Van Dyke Show, the Kennedy years, Andy Griffith, and the early Beatles. The "Hippie" style of the 60's didn't begin until the mid-late 60's, after the 1967 Summer of Love.Visit Kitsch-y-Cool V...

When I am cleaning a huge load of Vintage Clothing, I use a variety of cleaning techniques - Handwashing, "Dry" Cleaning Only (using my own dry cleaning formula), regular wash, and more.

Sometimes the smelly offenders are those lovely double-knit polyesters from the 1970's that can easily put put in the washing mach...
