Ahem

I'd just lke to draw everyone's attention to a fantastic new zine venture for all who are inspired by vintage, thrift and fashion: Story Bought Dress

Here's what the blurb says:

About


Story Bought Dress is an online zine which seeks to explore the stories of outfits and their wearers in creative ways. The zine is particularly interested in work centering around vintage and thrifted fashion and pieces which blur the boundaries between fact and fiction. Contributions may take whatever form the author wishes - anything from essays and memoirs to poetry, fragements, prose and conceptual pieces. There may be a visual component to these if you wish.
 
Contributions from around the world are welcome. Please send your piece or any queries to storyboughtdress(at)gmail(dot)com. Please attach your piece as a word document and include a brief author note.

Sounds fascinating, Rachel. My daughter wrote an essay on the wedding dress, its;' significance and history. I shall pass this link on to her. Thanks.

Oh, this sounds sooo inspiring! How is your computer doing? And what do I hear of a birthday?

Rachel Fenton said...

It's very exciting, isn't it, Lori!

PC situation is on the mend - early birthday pressie sorting that out - through getting it up and running is proving taxing - two days to make it recognise my modem! So hopping between the duff one and the new not quite ready one is both causing and reducing my headache!

Jeez - 35 - I was 19 a minute ago.

I love you, Rae! Thank you for this. I've already forwarded it to my friend who almost perfectly fits what I sense this is all about. I will go check it out, as well. You are good at finding the best things and sharing them.

Rachel Fenton said...

Awe, Les x

Pass on the zine - it's a new venture so great opportunity to be part of a fab thing from the start!

Leslie Morgan said...

WAIT, WAIT ~ ~ your birthday is WHEN?

Rachel Fenton said...

Ha! Nothing gets past you, Les!

It's tomorrow but sush - if you keep it quiet I can stay forever young! I reckin my profile pic will eventually fade to black!

Rachel Fenton said...

Oops, that should read "reckon" - I'm typing Kiwi now!

Isn't it, Talli - thanks.

Andrea said...

Thanks for everyone's interest and thanks again for linking, Rachel!

Rachel Fenton said...

You're most welcome, Andrea!

~*L.*~ said...

Oh, I missed it. Happy birthday, anyway! Why should you get to stay young forever? No way. Come join the rest of us, mortals. Lots of hugs :)

Rachel Fenton said...

Haha! Thanks, Lori. You sure I can't just linger at 35 for the next 15 years, then reassess? x

This sounds made for me! Wait till I weave a story around my embroidered 1970s furry coat from Pakistan, bought at a Florence vintage fair!

Thanks so much your book prize came through and is coming camping in Corsica with me! Ciao cat

Rachel Fenton said...

Cat, Just that sentence is art! - You have a vintage furry coat from Pakistan?! Envious!

I'm working on my own submission currently.

Happy camping - hope the book's great company!
