Description

"Alligators, Old Mink & New Money" is a celebration of the clothes that capture our memories and imaginations. Narrated by a former fashion model who now runs a Brooklyn vintage clothes and accessories store, this is not only the story of one woman's life in fashion, but a wonderfully entertaining guide for anyone seeking out vintage finds to add to their wardrobe. Marrying two of our most popular pastimes - shopping and reading - Alison Houtte examines everything from pre-War ball gowns to Seventies glitz, from designer labels to fun accessories. Whether talking about her grandmother's navy blue slip or a creamy white forties alligator purse, Houtte knows that every article of vintage clothing has a story behind it.
