She's the Bee's Knees!

... or rather The Cat's Pajamas! It always makes me happy to see the clothes I sell find good homes. To me, each piece has a history and I love knowing that its story doesn't end in a trash heap or rotting away in the back of a closet. Wouldn't you love to know where your "new" vintage dress has been? Was it worn on a special occasion? Did someone lovingly hand make it? Did it go on any travels with its previous owner? I like to think when I ship a dress to Paris or Milan or Japan, whoever wore it first would be pleased to know that their dress is being worn by some stylish girl in a faraway city.

It's not often that after I part with a dress I get to see it in its new home. But such is the case with this 30s crepe number. I loved this dress but it wasn't quite right on me. It was just too pretty to waste away in the back of my closet so I knew it had to move on. I think it found the perfect new home with Jessica!

You should read a book titled A Vintage Affair! Bet you can totally relate to it! (:

I love your blog, I love vintage. I am always stealing my mum's old clothes and looking in vintage shops.
I love how you say every piece of clothing has a story. I like to think so to. I hope to see ore of your clothes.
