Gold Vintage Purse

Ooooh, check this out. It's gold, it's sparkly, and it's mine! Found it at this hole in the wall vintage shop for less than $10. It's always the places I never think I'm going to find anything at that I end up getting the most stuff!

Vintage Gloves

Got my first Christmas present last night! A sweet friend of mine got me some gorgeous vintage gloves. I'm guessing they're 1950s, but I could be wrong. Either way I'm so excited, and can't wait to wear them. I've gotta start wearing more of my vintage collection. There's no sense in having all those beautiful dresses just hang in my closet, and this is the perfect time of year to do so. I will post the pics to prove it too.
Hope everyone has a great Christmas!

Ebay Dress of the Day

Love this red 1940's dress, but I still can't find my red vintage dress!
Why is it so hard to find a red one that fits me?
Life is unfair.
And I wanted one for the holidays. I've been looking for months too!
Ok, enough.
I did pick up a bunch of 70's shirts this weekend, if thats any consolation. Really funky, with big collars and crazy patterns. So fun.
Oooh, and I found a bunch of old school baby barrettes, all brand new in packages, so I grabbed those as well.
Last but not least, I found some very lovely gloves.
White, in good condition, with a little flower pattern on them.
Very ladylike.

Vintage Starlet of the Day

The goddess Rita Hayworth. I just watched Cover Girl, which has so much fabulous 40's fashion. Gorgeous suits & hats all over the place. Pure elegance. Not to mention the beautiful dresses.

Vintage Christmas Angel

My precious thrift shop angel. Complete with lights inside her dress. My favorite part of her though is her messy little bleached hair do.

Vintage Dress Finds

Wow, its time for me to post!

Ok, so I've found a ton of new things in the past week.
First the white little mini dress in the photo.
It looks really 60's, Im wondering if it was maybe some kind of unifom?
A little short for a nurses uniform, but the label says "White Cross" so you never know.
Just dont bend over.

Found a tye dyed 60s mini dress.
Super cute.
Also a long, green flower print Hawaiian dress. It's never too early to get ready for summer.
Not to mention a bunch of brand new, vintage white nylons to go with my new dresses.
And just my size.

Dating Vintage Clothing

Found this dress the other day, and it's in perfect condition! Looks like its barely been worn. Anyone have any guesses what year this could be? When I first saw it, I thought it looked very late 50's or early 60's...but maybe its more recent. It's very lightweight, and has some newer stitching inside, so who knows. Anyhow, I love it, but it's not my size like usual.
