I studied fashion at F.I.D.M. in SF and worked in product development/design, production, and technical design for several years. The best was working for John Rocha in Dublin, Ireland...talk about fun and excitement!!!! http://www.johnrocha.ie/ I fulfilled some childhood fantasies by being part of London and Paris Fashion Week!
I always wanted to design my own line and for a few years I did a children's line with a couple of friends. Alas with the economy crash it did not last :( I still enjoy creating for my girls, when I have time which is rare!

Mirsa was an important Italian knitwear company, founded in 1937 by the Marchesa Olga di Gresy. The Marchesa di Gresy's knitwear business enjoyed great success on the back of the Italian ready-to-wear export boom of the 1950s. Mirsa produced high fashion ready-to-wear suits and separates which were in demand; Saks 5th Avenue was one enthusiastic reseller of Mirsa products. Mirsa manufactured both the Marchesa's own designs and, in the 1950s, some Emilio Pucci knits, to a similar standard and for the same export market. The company closed in 1984.

I love this swimsuit...its got that bombshell fit with the full cups, cinched waist and flattering cut! Why don't they make them like this anymore? I know so many people who love vintage suits but they are hard to find and especially in your size right??
When I found this along with the matching terry cloth coverup I practically squealed! Now if only I had the bombshell body! I am working on that though...lost 25 lbs so far and am going for gold!! Watch me just shrink away!
My name is Sandra and I LOVE all things fashion! My latest passion is Vintage Fashion and therefore I want to share my latest finds with you.
I studied fashion merchandising at FIDM, worked in the field for several years, took a turn into finance and in the past few years I have gotten back to my love of fashion.
I started and worked on a childrens wear line for awhile, continued to craft endlessly, and now am selling my vintage finds on etsy! Check out : www.fiinafiina.etsy.com
My family is my priority, which includes my spearfishing husband www.herrranenspearguns.com and 2 young girls.
