Oh Suzi!! Suzi Quatro really rocks (and knows how to rock a jumpsuit!)! She found success in Europe and Australia, but was sadly overlooked here in the U.S. with the exception of her role as "Leather Tuscadero" on "Happy Days". As you might guess, she was a big influence on Joan Jett. Here's 1973's "48 Crash".

I absolutly adore this vintage 50's patio dress! Erin, from the ultra fabulous and highly recommended blog, A Dress A Day, had some very sweet things to say about this dress on Valentines day (Thanks Erin!). How could you not have a fabulous day clad in this ric-rack and bandanna print beauty! For a long time now I've wished that it fit me, but it doesn't and it won't...so now it's time to send it out to find a new home!
