If you are like me, you probably have accumulated bits and pieces of vintage clothing with every intention of eventually completing an outfit.  Well why not mix some of those great vintage pieces with newer ones to create one of a kind ensembles.  Case in point, this fabulous mint Theatre Date (1963) emerald green satin jacket is layered over an early Integrity Candy doll black satin cocktail sheath.  The belt, gloves, shoes, and bracelet are all from Mattel.  The purse is from Integrity.  The OOAK necklace and earrings are from The Couture Touch.  The cocktail hat is from Dressmaker Details.  My stunning model is the vintage reproduction Barbie doll, Friday Night Date by Mattel.
