Back to Online Shopping

Well, I did my usual thrift store rounds this weekend with no luck!
I guess I used up all my good luck in the last 2 months.
Hmm, should I try garage sales next week?
I've just never hit up any quality garage sales before, so I'm kind of skeptical. For clothes anyhow.
I could go back to my usual vintage clothing specialty stores, but they're beyond highway robbery....I swore I would stick to thrift shops after paying such ridiculous prices for years in vintage shops.

Maybe I'll just sit in front of my computer....
I did find this beautiful wrap dress online, so tempting!
I might just have to.

Hippy Dresses

Yep, that's what I'm calling them now because I refuse to use the word "BOHO" anymore.
It's starting to make me sick.
It was understandable a couple years ago, when the bohemian look made comeback and got trendy.
But now?!
Everything is labeled "Boho" because they think it will sell better! I kid you not, today I walked past this totally conservative(and quite boring looking) store, and on the window a big sign read "Boho Fashion".
I started laughing at the idea that these conservative shop owners assumed that by saying the "B" word, it would get trendy people in their store to buy their drabby clothing.
Needless to say the store was empty.
Anyhow, I LOVE hippy dresses, and I saw this one today on Ebay. Only $20!
Well, so far.

Have to Have It

Found this 1950s dark blue dress online tonight.
So simple, yet so gorgeous!
Also found this super cute, red apron style dress. Love the ruffles.

All Things Retro

Wow, I've been productive the last couple days!
Got the cutest pink mini dress(yes, another one) this weekend. I can't believe my luck lately.
Also found this green Hawaiian style 60s little dress with shorts underneath, but it fit really weird.
So I had to leave it hanging on the rack, which was not easy to do.

I know this isn't about clothes, but it fits into the vintage category so whatever.
I've been trying to find a funky starburst clock forever, and I finally found one! Of course its not an actual Howard Miller, but close enough. I'm on a mission to turn my boring contemporary apartment into somewhat of a swanky 50s pad, so I will post my findings as they come!

EBay Still A Goldmine

I don't get how everyone I talk to says there's no deals on Vintage Clothing on Ebay anymore!
Then I'm looking online and reading all this crap on how prices on vintage clothes on Ebay have sky-rocketed!
Seriously, are these people on crack or just plain lazy?
I'm constantly finding unbelievable bargains on cute vintage stuff, so often that I won't even look some days because I need money to eat!

Anyways, I guess I should be glad these people think this way, so then there will be more sweet deals for me.

Hit or Miss at the VV Boutique

Whats with Value Village?

I swear for months I completely avoided it because it was honestly all junk everytime I went in.
Such a waste of my time.
Then for some reason I decided to give it another chance.
So I went in this past weekend and found not one, but 2 gorgeous sixties mini dresses - in decent condition!
So rare!

So yah, VV is my friend again.

Oh, and I will post the dresses soon...but for now I will leave you with this beauty.
