Vintage Sixties Mini Dress

Sooo perfect for summer. I found this one on Ebay. I don't know why, but I've been neglecting all my 60's vintage dresses lately. I go through phases where I'll wear one decade or style for months, and then move onto a different one. This just reminded me of how much I LOVE mini dresses. Now I'm gonna go pull all mine out the boxes.

Vintage Dress Up Time

I babysat my little niece the other night, and who wouldn't want to play dress up with my 20 boxes of vintage clothing? Except she doesn't like to stick to one decade, she likes to mix it up a bit. Lets see, there's the 60's mini dress and purse, the 80's gold heels, and the 50's hat. Looks good to me.

Vintage Hat Dreaming

So, I found these three gorgeous hats that I love. The first one is from the 20's, second one from the 30's, and of course the last one is from the 40's. I think that if I had to pick one though, I would choose the green 30's hat. I love the fact that it has a bit of a masculine look to it. Which is your favorite?

Ebay Dress of the Day

Mine! It's a vintage swing dress. It's got a cute velvet trim around the collar and sleeves, and a nice full skirt that would great on the dance floor. I really wish it fit, but unfortunately it's just not my size, so I put it up for sale. More details here.

Vintage Starlet of the Day

Louise Brooks. Dancer and actress, Louise became the hot trendsetter of the 1920's. Not just with her stylish clothes, but with her pageboy hairstyle that influenced women everywhere. Did you know that after she stopped acting in 1938, she became a very accomplished writer?

Vintage Hawaiian Style

Aloha! I was looking on Ebay for a vintage Hawaiian dress, and I came across this.
What a beauty....too bad I promised myself I wouldn't buy clothing on Ebay for another month! I spent way past my limit last time!

Wannabe Vintage Clothing

I don't do it very often, but once in awhile I give in and buy clothes that are non vintage. Of course they usually have a vintage look to them though, hehe. Anyhow, just thought I'd post a pic of my latest "new" find. I've been looking for a red dress forever, and this one just grabbed my attention. I usually stay away from malls, but my sister dragged me out the other day, and well, I got my dress!

Drop Dead Gorgeous Vintage Shoes

I just got these vintage heels! And with their original box too! I'm so excited. They're supposed to be slippers, but as if I'm not going to show these off. They look around 40's/50's. They should go well with my matching gloves and vintage 40's black dress.
