What I'm Wearing



photos by Tom B.

dress: vintage (Crossroads on Melrose)
shoes: vintage (Slow on Melrose)
bag: vintage (America's Thrift, B'ham, AL)
necklace: vintage (my grandmother's)

I always enjoy reading where other people find their vintage pieces so I'm going to try to start listing where I find each of my pieces. This dress is a result of trading in some of my old clothes that I no longer wore at Crossroads in LA. When they take all of your clothes they ask if you want cash or store credit. I could see this dress hanging on the rack and I knew it was coming home with me. I think that was the only time I took store credit. :)

Oh you find the most amazing dresses - and the shoes are also a great choice.

The shoes are great! You're so lucky you can trade your old clothes! Having not this kind of stores here, you can only throw your old clothes away or give them to charity, but of course it's for free...
