THE WAY WE USED TO SHOP AT CHRISTMAS

Vintage advertising just gets us in the mood for Christmas. Back in 1951 you could get a snazzy shirt for $6.00. Do they still make Van Heusen shirts?

    If you look in local shops (ie: not Wal Mart) you may still find deals like this. We have a local store that has sold quality clothes and linens for generations…no one goes there anymore but if they DID they’d find Italian shirts (like above) on sale for $10 down from $80 AND that includes a matching tie! I bought 5 for Christmas and I’m done now ;-p

    The ad is a cutie! I was at a partie two nights ago and somehow a man there I didn’t know wound up telling me his shirts are $160! I almost swallowed my cranberry sauce in a gulp of shock!

    Not really, the shirts are mostly made by slant eye’s today with some made in the tropics and many marked “Made in Italy” but none in actuality.

NEW UPDATE CHECK IT OUT - HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT!

  • HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT: LOOK WHO’S NOT TALKING ABOUT HARVEY WEINSTEIN !
    |

    We love every one of Harvey Weinstein’s female accusers – but what about the actresses who AREN’T talking? One actress who won an Oscar in the 90’s has been CONSPICUOUSLY SILENT about the casting couch scandal. It’s because SHE has had a long-term “arrangement” with Harvey in which she traded sex for showbiz favors and it must have been awful, but her career prospered. Now this A-lister is horrified at the prospect of being found out! And, guess what – she’s NOT the only one who’s conspicuously silent!
    Any guesses?
