"Dear Coppélia"

Greetings brethren,

I'm not, at the moment, conducting any form of steampunkology myself, but I have access to journals that…

Interview With Vintage Fashionista Brigitte Daguerre!

What trendy  girl (or metro boy!) doesn’t love vintage clothing—it looks stylish, never goes out of fashion, and can be handed down without your little sister crying: “Aw, are you joking—wear this old thing?!”

            Out of the hundreds of vintage clothing sites, stores, antique shops, etc … I’ve had the privilege of meeting (and even…
