- First is a little vintage lace jacket/shrug thingy that I'm not exactly sure how I'm going to wear. I think it would work over a dress or even with jeans and a tank top.
- Did you know that Diane von Furstenberg used to make children's clothes? Well, I didn't! I discovered that fact when I found this little DVF dress. Yes, it's technically a child's dress but it's perfect for a small adult. Look for it in the store this week.
- I'm not exactly sure what era this navy and cream dress is from. It has the look and feel of a dress from the 40's but it could have been made as a "retro" dress in the 60's. Either way, it's a real gem. It has an open seam down the back and the attached belt is navy on one side and cream on the other so when you tie it in a bow you can see both colors. It'll be in the store this week as well.
- Last but not least here is a shot of the bathing suit I mentioned in my last post. I tried to take a photo that would do it justice, but I'm just not sure that's possible. Hopefully you get the idea. :)
14 July 2008
We've returned safely from our adventures in Baltimore with hundreds of photos to sift through, a task which I've only just begun. I'm so excited to share them with you as soon as I get them organized. More on that later. Right now I'd like to show you some of my favorite vintage finds of the last couple of weeks.
I'm not much of a "bag" girl. I've never been concerned with carrying whatever is the "it bag" of the moment. I couldn't even tell you what bag is "it" right now. I tend to pick one simple vintage bag and carry it until it falls apart. I'd like to mix it up a bit. I'm going to try carrying one of these little clutches for nights out. The 50's woven bag and the blue structured bag will be perfect for days when I need to tote lots of stuff around. The shoes are just a smidgen big but nothing a couple of thick insoles won't take care of. It's 90 degrees outside and I'm already thinking about wearing them with tights this autumn. The little gold toned rose earrings were just too sweet to pass up.
