My (Hardly) Secret Shame

I’m a Facebook addict. I also like to eat cheese and drink beer in the evening at any point of the day when it’s not socially unacceptable to do that. Most of the time when I’m not actually doing something, I’m catching up on Facebook. Here’s a sweet dog picture I posted on Facebook three weeks [...]

What? Me? Thank You!

Thanks to all those who voted for me in the People’s Choice Awards over on LuLu’s Vintage Blog. Yay! I am so honored and it’s especially nice to be recognized along with such a fine list of colleagues. Now back to what I do best: Hope to have a few new items for you next [...]

I’m All Right But My Bike Is Not

My bike frame broke yesterday. I don’t know when I can have it repaired or what it will cost. Many of you know how much I love my bike! I am crushed. I’m running a sale at Lucitebox.com NOW to raise funds. If you or someone you know wants to purchase something, this is the [...]

Vintage in Real Life

I love to see Lucitebox customers wearing vintage from the shop.  Maija has been my friend for years. We met when we were both vintage dealers on eBay. She also consigns vintage with me. She has impeccable taste. Her boyfriend, Bijijoo does, too. He got this gold leather dress for her for her birthday. Here’s [...]

Bridge: Portland & Los Angeles

My vacation was really lovely. I went to Portland for a few days and then I went to Los Angeles for a few more days. I visited friends in each city and enjoyed a fairly non-touristy, insider look at each place.  When out-of-towners visit Chicago, I try to convince them to avoid activities that have [...]

I’ve Got Nothing For You

…but these things. Here’s a snapshot of my friend Cookie wearing a dress she got from me. She’s at Viva Las Vegas, an annual trip for Cookie.  I never put this 1950s dress on the site because it didn’t really look good on Sabrina. It looks darling on Cookie and I love seeing her in [...]

Something In My House: Almost All of It

You’ve read about my open house sale here and on my Facebook page. Take a look at this sweet documentation that artfully shows off all kinds of little vintage junky junks, doodads, and brick-a-bracks in my humble abode. These wonderful photos were taken by Merl, who you met here yesterday. She’s got mad photography skills, so [...]

People Wearing Vintage From Lucitebox

At left:  Niki of Bombshell Shocked wears a pretty Spring floral ’50s shirt dress with big pockets. This dress never made it to my website, but Niki was able to get it at my open house sale.  I love how Niki styled it with a black leather belt and a minty green sweater which compliments [...]

They Wear It Well

  You’re tired of my posts about the fashion show, I’m sure. Nonetheless, I wanted to show these things to you because I think they illustrate something about my aesthetic and the way that I select things for my website. One of the things I try to keep in mind when buying vintage to offer [...]

Bike Winter Fashion Show: Out Takes and Links

Martha at work. The other day, I mentioned to you that Lucite Box is involved in a fashion show. Here are a few images from the shoot. Because I’m pressed for time and bored with writing about these things, this will be brief. Please do click around and have a look at the links in [...]
