I mentioned yesterday that several new things have made their way into my closet so I thought I'd give you a little peek. I picked both of these dresses up while in NYC last weekend. The one on the left is the fixer-upper from the Chelsea flea market. It's had a nice bath and is all clean. Now it just needs a zipper and it'll be ready to go. The 60s plaid day dress I picked up at No Relation Vintage. The shop is a bit crowded and you certainly have to spend some time picking through things to get to the good stuff, but I'm a gal who likes the treasure hunt aspect of vintage shopping so I didn't mind that part. The prices were the most reasonable I found in the city. This little number only cost me a twenty spot.
Last week when Andreja was visiting Lancaster and we did a little shopping, I came home with these two dresses. The one on the left was a bit of a hard sell for me. It leans a little to the "girly" side for me and I don't usually do such full skirts. But in the end the hydrangea print won me over and I'm happy I brought this one home. The best part of the navy wrap dress is the print which sadly, gets a bit lost in this photo. It's a little bird-on-a-wire print!
These two are Etsy finds. The black floral one came to me via Tractor Dog Vintage who got it from Noir Ohio Vintage. I love when dresses get passed around like that! I'm already feeling like this will be my go-to comfy dress all summer long. The pretty indigo dress came to me via Francesca at 1385. She always has the most exquisite finds in her shop and I'm always happy to get my hands on one.
Finally we have two sweet sundresses. The white floral wrap dress is the only thing I saved for myself out of all the summer stock I just sorted through for the shop. I accidentally tried it on backwards when I pulled it out of the bag and sort of liked it better than way than the right way. The 40s yellow print you've already seen. It's the one I was wearing to the Chelsea flea market. But, since you haven't been formally introduced, I thought I'd show it to you again. It came with a sweet note from the seller with a bit of history on the dress. It belonged to a lady named Dorothy who loved to play cards. I love knowing that! It makes the dress all the more special.
