Get Your Grinch On


Here's a little number that I recently came across and couldn't wait to list in my shop on Etsy.  This is a vintage 1960's Lilli Ann cropped sleeve green "Flare" dress similar to the "Red Flare" that was available for Barbie back in the day.



However, Barbies "Flare" didn't have the "Jackie O" styled Mink fur collar as the "Grinch" coat offers.


Which is in marvelous condition for it's age.  The green material is almost that of a "mohair" and also exceptional in condition.


The lining is also something to brag about (not that i'm bragging, lol) in that it is of a beautiful golden satin and testimony to the quality of this Lilli Ann coat.



You can find this and other vintagicities in my Etsy shops NeverTooOld and Vintagicity.

Season's Greetings

I just happen to be wearing a shirt that matches that color exactly! I love the comparison with Barbie, too.

Hi Autena, Thanks for stopping by and hope you're doing well and enjoying the holiday season. Thanks for the nice comments. I've never seen a "Flare" coat in this color, so sure hope it sells. I think Barbie likes it too! lol.
