Vintage Fashion, Lingerie & Shopping Link Round-Up

At How Retro, a nifty post on vintage bras and the history of the fashionable bustline.

At Inherited Values, Deanna shows us our latest addiction: an online shopping site that operates rather like a game — and you can get stuff for free!

At Girlie Girl Army a review of Dresscue Me, a new series on Planet Green, which follows Shareen Mitchell, a former-actress turned self-taught designer who “reworks old duds and turns them into fashion-forward frocks.” Whatever you think of repurposing vintage fashions, the review says the show is “for anyone fascinated by the vintage clothing world, or interested in making money off their vintage finds.” (I’ve not seen the show, but I find the note in the review about her “exclusively female clients,” the store sign that reads No Boys Allowed, more off-putting than the Girlie Girl crowd’s upset about fur.)

Remember that whole discussion about fake designer corset rip-offs? Well, Treacle has continued the talk at her blog with Catherine of Kiss Me Deadly and Sam of Lulu and Lush (a.k.a Fairygothmother) — and there are discount codes there too.
