Irene’s Closet

Vintage Fashion and Unique finds.

Happy 1st year Anniversary blog… =) November 11, 2007

dThis november my official blog is celebrating its 1st year anniversary. I never expected it to last.. and people to even read it. I begin with this blog in sheer boredom and curiosity on “blogging”. This blog contains almost everything.. from my basic interest, my latest finds, inspirations, my new collection and events for one whole year.

To those who are part of my friends in the ever popular Facebook, as my status clearly says – Irene is excited for a fun filled week. Why? My friend from LA is coming home. Meaning party almost every night. Numerous out of town trip… But most importantly, I am totally looking forward to get my Japanese Fashion Magazine from him. Since, he’d be staying here in my apartment for a couple of days before we go out of town… I am so determined to get cool dining chairs. It doesn’t have to be expensive. So there, I am still on a look out hopefully i find before he comes over.

lo

I am so desperate to fix my apartment.. I think, the dining chairs will be the first step in fixing my place. Right now, it looks like a storage and work space and not really a home… I just wish, I just have the time. I am thinking of this look….

Vintage trade signs … my new obsession October 21, 2007

Its fun how one discover something new to obsess upon. It was Mico who introduced me to this vintage trade signs. I soooo love them. I got my first 1960’s authentic trade sign the other day. It is a Robin Hood Hair Pomode I immediately displayed it at the store for others to enjoy too.. If someone gives me a cool offer… maybe I’ll sell it… maybe….

I feel that my Home section is still not enough. When its sooo packed with trinkets and coochi stuff, then I’ll know its time. Here are some photos of what you’ll find at Coochi Home.
