March 9, 2011Options For Authentic Crinolines
So, it is literally pelting snow outside today, which is weird because 10 minutes ago it was raining. But indecisive Michigan weather aside, I have been sitting here, looking out the window at the soft, puffy snow mounding up and thinking one thing.
I really, really need to get a good crinoline.
And not just any crinoline. I need a super puffy, super gorgeous one. And one that is the right length. Just like this one from Etsy seller, delilahsdeluxe.
But there are so many questions and choices.
Do I want a vintage one, or a new one, like this one from Ebay seller theexbay?
New has its perks. I don’t have to worry about shredding or breaking elastic. I don’t have to worry that the colors will run or change when I wash it.
But the vintage ones are so gorgeous, and the colors are so varied and fantastic. The soft pink, the pretty peach, the minty green. This gorgeous coral one from Etsy seller theoldwhitehouse (go MI!) You just can’t get the same colors new.
Speaking of which, what color do I want???
Green? From Ebay seller lbakedalaska.
Or just a classic, neutral white? From Etsy seller snootieseconds.
Or, I suppose I could even make one…
I think I’ll just stick with buying one. Any recommendations??
