me: portrait

My eyes!

I just spent over 2 hours trolling Ebay - I am in desperate need of a new bodice, since I have shrunk out of all my old ones. Unfortunately, I haven't shrunk *into* my older old off to Ebay I went.

Good Lord, what are some of these people thinking????? The "purple means witch" lady is back, and someone that thinks that lace and calico = RenFaire, and folks that have No Clue on exactly how a bodice is supposed to look. And don't get me started on the people that like stretch velvets and no - or very little - boning. *sigh*

There were a few gems: Odd Bodkin has nice looking bodices, at reasonable prices. So does RoyalCoffers - and she tosses in a skirt. I'm trying to decide what color I need.....and then I need to figure out how to get one slightly smaller than I am now - I'm still shrinking, and I don't want to spend the money Now and have the bodice not fit in October, when I need it.

So, anyone out there have any other vendors to tempt me with? I'm looking for a nice, well-supportive bodice that doesn't cost as much as a tank of gas. *g* *(J/K - I'd like to keep it under $100, under $60 would be better)

In other news, Himself has a doc. appt in the AM. He's coughing, and since I'm just coming off of strep, I want to make sure it's nothing major. Yippee - I get to drive into Dallas tomorrow!
