The Red Petticoat



Hi friends, I went to a vintage faire today and walked away with nothing. That said....the 2 thrift stores were much better...each store yielded a great find. Goodwill provided me with a great vintage red petticoat. It is a crimson red, and extremely full...with a great wow factor. All my Sisters on the Fly, and Vintage Women with Trailers will be green with envy. Every girl wants a petticoat or two for fun and decoration. We sometimes wear them for happy hour! Theses photos show that it is possible to wear these as well. I think that I would look like a fool...and not cute like these models. (Nicole, do you want to borrow for Halloween?) The cost you may ask...$9.00. Fabulous Find!!! By the way...I have looking at all the thrift stores for 1 1/2 years for these. I did find a chiffon lavender petticoat in Portland at Salvation Army in spring 2013. Now I am the proud owner of two vintage petticoats. The other find? I will do a post for it.


I think that I could pull off an outfit like this for a camping event. I could layer the lavender one under the red petticoat...use some black tights with my cowboy boots. I have a cowboy hat, belt and jewelry. Hum...it looks like fun!
