Congratulations to yingli ! She is the lucky reader who's answers were randomly picked as today's winner. Thank you yingli. Please email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) with your mailing address so you can receive your vintage goodies. :)
Stay tuned for an exciting announcement for the store tomorrow and a super prize on Friday!
I photographed this dress towards the end of spring with intentions to put it up for sale in the store. When I tried it on I realized that it was the perfect hippie mini dress that I'd been dreaming of for summer. The entire front of the dress is covered in the most intricate embroidery - so pretty! For some reason it's just lingered in my closet ever since, sadly unworn. I decided to pull it out today for one last hurray before it finally goes in the store tomorrow. It deserves a home where it will be worn more often.

If you are one of these lovely ladies, I've left a message for you on your Myspace page. You'll be getting a little package in the mail soon! Thanks again. :)
And now for Tuesday's contest...
Over the past few weeks I've been collecting vintage knick-knacks, accessories and any little thing that caught my eye and storing them in a pretty hat box. It can all be yours if you just answer these five questions (leave your answers in the comments). Hint: All of the answers can be found in the archives of the blog.
- By now I think everyone has figured out that Sally Jane is not my real name. Where did the name Sally Jane come from?
- Name three movies that have influenced the way I view fashion.
- Who was the very first “It Girl of the Month”?
- I’m currently living in Lancaster, PA but where did I live before that?
- Name three albums that I could listen to over and over.
Tomorrow I'll collect all the correct answers and randomly pick one to win the hat box! You're on the honor system ladies - no copying. Besides, you never know if someone else got all the right answers. Thanks as always for reading and go0d luck! :)

As I was snapping these photos a thunderstorm was quickly moving in across the horizon. I had to stop when the lightening got too close. I love thunderstorms (a product of growing up in the South I suppose) so I was looking forward to it but this one just blew right by.

Joan, the office vixen and head secretary is always seen in body hugging dresses in rich jewel tones.
Peggy, the ambitious up-and-coming ad woman, plays it conservative for her office job.
Betty, the dutiful, long-suffering wife with a dark side, is seen in New Look silhouettes and pretty day dresses.
To celebrate the one year anniversary of Sally Jane Vintage, I'll be announcing a new contest everyday this week. And with contests come winners, and with winners come prizes! Look for instructions after my usual daily posts. Thanks so much reading! Love, SJ

My boyfriend and I went on a date to one of our favorite stores in town. The downstairs in an architectural salvage store filled to the brim with old doors, stained glass windows, antique stoves and boxes of glass doorknobs. But my favorite part is upstairs where they keep all the vintage knick-knacks, dishes and books. I always want to take everything home with me!
I've long been a fan of BUST Magazine. It's always been a place of inspiration - from their interviews to their editorials, it feels like a magazine written by real girls, girls you know you'd be friends with if you met them on the street. I was so thrilled when Tara asked me to participate in the August/September issue of BUST. Tara put together a great piece in the magazine about blogger/wardrobe_remix fashion. I'm seriously coveting that Samantha Pleet romper (you know me and rompers!). Besides little ol' moi there's also an excerpt of photos from the upcoming book Edith Bouvier Beale of Grey Gardens: A Life in Pictures that is an absolute must see as well as a Twin Peaks inspired editorial that's left me pining for Fall. Get your hands on a copy, pronto!
