In the 1990’s, I made my first on-line order, and it was from Victoria Secret. It was a long silk-knit gown for a VSO season opener back when I was the Associate Director there.  Since then, it has languished in my closet because it was out of fashion.

Kristina offered a series of 3 vintage buttons, and I added to the back a vintage bowtie strung out.



I wore it out to a staff dinner at Christmas.
