Vintage Clothing Deprivation



I haven't been feeling too hot the last couple weeks, so I'd like to apologize for the lack of posting. To top it all off, I tried to go thrift shopping a few times and haven't been able to find anything even close to vintage! Now thats depressing. My last couple thrift shop searches have consisted of wasting hours looking through racks of really bad 90's clothing, low quality halter tops and mini skirts. Maybe thats what caused me to feel not so good? Sigh. Hopefully the next couple weeks will make up for my lack of recent finds. Anyhow, check out the latest goods I managed to find on Ebay. A lace embroidered 1920's dress (talk about fragile!), a 1950's swimsuit, and a snakeskin 1940's shoes and purse set! Here's to outbidding my competitors:)

Thrifting can be really depressing sometimes. You've just got to soldier on! I love that swimsuit... It looks brand new. And that 20s dress is a really great find.

oh love the swimsuit. if i don't win something i really want on eBay i get sad for days but i try to comfort my self with the thought that the item ended really high :D

I know the feeling, when i was thrifting this summer in my homevillage there was only 90's stuff i manage to find some small things but no clothes.

I love the shoes & bag! *swoon*

I agree on the thrifting, rarely find anything truly vintage nowadays. It seems that the thrift stores have an eye for such things and perhaps have their own e-bay biz?
