We haven't done this in a while, hmmm? Played let's-see-what's-new-in-my-closet? For a while there I was feeling pretty spurned by the vintage gods. Lots of goodies being found for the shop, but none for me. It was a bit like Goldilocks, ya know? Everything was a bit too big, a bit too small or just not quite right. Then in the last couple of weeks it started raining vintage dresses in my size. Don't you love when that happens?
- This 30s era cotton voile dress is... perhaps my favorite find of all time? I know I always say that but this time... for reals. Perfect sailoresque collar? Check. Side ruffley bits? Check. Hand stitching that tugs my heart strings? Check!
- This Betty Barclay dress is pretty much on the opposite end of the same spectrum of the first dress. That same sort of sailor girl feel but in super soft wool with lots of professionally tailored details. It's just about perfect now that I took about 7 inches off the hem.
- Ummm... how many months, nay years, have I been searching for a brown Gladstone style bag? Many! This one (with original key!) finally came my way via Etsy. Now I just need a soft leather one big enough to crawl into.
- I wish I had found this gem back in the fall. Doesn't it have the nicest fall colors? This one came via Etsy seller Carmalized Vintage in a package so pretty I hated to open it.
