Souvenirs

Here are a few things I picked up on my travels last week...

Found at the Salvation Army in Watertown, NY

So prim and perfect! It's not often I find one of these dresses with short sleeves. I cannot wait to take this dress out!


Watertown, NY. I hope I'll be back soon (stuffed with amazing vintage)!

My fantasy of finding a pair of rollerskates that fit has finally come true! And while they're not white or pink, they can easily be made that way... I'm even toying with painting them, graffiti-style in pink and white on the sides.


These and everything else from the ever-amazing vintage trove that are the thrift stores of Cincinnati.

I'm not usually drawn to things that are 1960's-ish, but this raincoat is the perfect shade of green, and the pattern is small enough to not be clowny. It's a perfect, straight fit and has a lovely little peter pan collar. The sundress will be trotted out with a silver belt and heels for shady disco fun!


This dress likes being on a body better than being on a hanger on a fence, it seems!... but it is perfectly gauzy and light and bright, but just slightly too big so I'll be putting it in the Etsy store.



This beautiful velvet bolero is from the 1940's or 1950's and is so incredibly beautiful. It has floral embroidery in pink, white and green all over, and tiny gold filigree balls for buttons.

Like buttah. Fits slouchy and perfectly and looks almost brand-new, even though it's from the early 1980's. I'm begging for fall now!
