• harem pants - Oh ye gods, I don't know about you west/east coasters, but here in the midwest these babies luckily haven't caught on (so either they will next year, or not at all, time will tell). And with good reason- who could these possibly be flattering on? If they are ass-masking, they sure as hell make you look like you have the fattest legs in the world and it's okay since you have fitted ankles? Huh? They are pretty much jodhpurs if you take out everything cute about jodhpurs.
• severe lack of petite vintage clothing - I am unfortunate in my love of vintage attire because I am short and do not have broad shoulders, but I have a moderately sized bosom/waist (somehow my ass usually isn't a problem). Everything that I find that fits me in terms of vintage clothing is too long, has really broad shoulders that make even simple sleeves look like poufy princess sleeves, or both. O how I wish that some vintage collector soul would dedicate a vintage store, even if it's just a webstore, to us gnomes. (Hint hint hint!)
Also, folks, I have a new layout here at tzipporit industries, let me know what you think. I liked the roundies but I liked the opportunity to post pictures wider than 400 pixels better. This layout also looks more modern somehow.
