you bet your sweet ass I'm a model



as many of you know, I am an ebay whoreena. at the minute, I'm on a vinty cherry tear. cherry knobs, cherry linens and cherry chach. yesterday in my cherry hunting frenzy, I happened upon timeless vixen.



this dame sells vintage dresses from the 50's and models them. below you'll find a few of her famous poses. someone in her life must have said, dearie, you don't have what it takes to be a model. thanks to ebay, she proved them all wrong and has become, what I think is the kitschiest, high camp model I've ever seen. she is... a riot.



and now.... timeless vixen in: the pink roses party dress, the polka dot wiggle, the polka dot sequins and the mod sailor, and oh what a vixen she is.











for the record, I would pay a mint to see her dark side

I love the Bettie Page bangs and eyebrows.

I don't think she has a dark side to her. She doesn't strike me as a Martha who could make shiv out of a doily nor a Kathie Lee, doin' the six year-old Guatemalans chained to the radiators-thing in Jersey City.

She's adorable. I especially like the sailor salute and the leg kick.

Awesome.

"...in my cherry hunting frenzy..."

Why?
Have you misplaced your original?

Evil Spock has a ton of vintage clothes, which includes a plethora of cabana wear and cowboy shirts. Been wearing them since before the new century.

Take that Urban Outfitters and your faux vintage!

Do you own June Cleaver pearls like her?

I think you have just found the starlet for the next John Waters film....

Am I the only person who is terrified of this alien?

WHO DOES THAT? WTF? Now I'm going to lose sleep.

Thanks a lot, Timeless Beeyotch.

We should all pay to see everyone's dark side. Televise it on national TV.

Oh, she has her dark side, Write Procrastinator; you're just being naive. She's my new role model. And I'm ordering RED VIXEN 50s Vintange Shelf-bust Chiffon Party Dress for that fab summer wedding!

Rhetorically Sterculian said...

The fact that she is a Yankee is dark side enough for me

Eebie said...

So awesome that she's doing something fun and expressin herself. I want a job like that.

She has a dark side alright. This seller is notorious for buying vintage cheaply from other EBay sellers, then reselling it.... without disclosing the flaws - even going so far as to state items with rips and stains are in 'mint cndition'! While she has few negatives on her feedback, she has tons of 'mutualy withdrawn' feedback, due to this hmmmm.........

Theres also numerous EBay id's which bid on her items yet never win them - most likely shill bids.

It's for these reasons she was booted from the vintage fashion guild among other vintage webrings geared towards promoting ebay sellers. One such site documents her unethical practices here:

This has also been a hot topic on the EBay message boards before. Shame on you for promoting someone like this.
