Speaking of Ginger...

...I have a dress that I believe she would have worn well, labeled Jean Carol.

I was already excited to see such a great example of 30s style (I mean, just look at this back!)

...but was overjoyed to know the history of the Jean Carol label. It was designed by Peggy Hunt, long a favorite for her dresses under her eponymous label. The Jean Carol label was used before she became well known by her own name. Peggy Hunt's daughter, Jeannette Alexander was also fine designer with her own label. Both labels are always attached to covetable dresses.

Read more about this family of designing women at (Peggy Hunt & Jeannette Alexander). Lizzie had the honor of hearing from Jacqui Hyland, the daughter of Jeannette Alexander and the granddaughter of Peggy Hunt.



Vintage shopping for animal welfare

A quick survey of some great sellers shows I'm not alone in supporting animal welfare through my vintage sales.

The ever-fabulous Meloo has a number of items on eBay with a percentage of the sale going to RESCUE. How about these rhinestone-studded 1950s Springolators?

Whiskersrescue on eBay has a wonderful array of items, such as this Weiss red aurora borealis rhinestone set, all to help Whiskers Rescue Inc.
This stunning 1950s Fred Perlberg gown is one of the temptations in store for you at Fuzzylizzie's Etsy shop, with proceeds going to Sarge's Animal Rescue Foundation.

Reminder: I will donate 25% of my earnings (from all of my selling venues at throughout August to the Save the Manatee Club. Thank you so much for all who have purchased so far, and especially for those who let me know they care about manatees too. Without you, I couldn't make this impact.
