IWIAYQ: PART IV + Shop Update


april

Pictured Above: Spring has sprung in ye olde shoppe!

From Jessica of Lola Vintage:

What is one thing you will never wear?

I have very few standards when it comes to my wardrobe, but I will most certainly never wear fur (vintage or otherwise). In addition to being cruel, I find it slightly vulgar...kind of like corvettes.

What vintage item that you currently own will you never sell?

Great question! I would sell most all of my material possessions for the right price in a heartbeat, but I would be hard-pressed to part with my Michael Jackson "Rock With You"/"Working Day and Night" 7" record. To paraphrase the great lyricist Eddie Murphy, that little piece of wax put the boogie in my butt.

What is your favorite joke right off the top of your head?

Rod Blagojevich

and...favorite funny movie?

I can't pick just one, so here's a quick, decidedly unacademic list:

* Welcome to the Dollhouse
* But I'm A Cheerleader
* Office Space
* Zack and Miri Make a Porno
* Clockwatchers
* Burn After Reading (if only for the monologue delivered by Malkovich before he's offed)

YOU ARE ME.

I'm not a fur fan at all, but I thought maybe I could sell it. I found a pristine vintage coat with fur trim for pennies over the winter, but I couldn't bring myself to buy it. The thought of it just sitting in my house gave me the creeps.

I also feel the same way about corvettes.

haha! I also vacillated on selling fur. And feathers. And leather. Leading a principled life is particularly hard during a recession.

also, yellow corvettes are the worst.

I love Welcome to the Dollhouse, and Office Space too. Will have to check out your other funny movie faves. Also, that Eddie Murphy bit gave me a L O L moment. :D
