Ok i'm going to tease you with more sneak peeks from today's shopping adventure. This is not even half of what I picked up. There is seriously SO much coming to the shop. I'm rescuing vintage from being destroyed during the halloween season. Today I saw the twin to this wedding dress destroyed on the costume rack. It was such a tragedy. I almost cried, but instead I rescued several good condition dresses from the rack and kept my chin up knowing that those dresses would be loved, not destroyed this year.
Here are a few of my favorite pieces.
40s striped day dress with ribbon ties.
sweetest knit skirt with the most adorable print!
fuzzy angora cropped sweater with satin bows
2 pairs of granny boots (9.5) and a pair of 70s designer peep toe pumps w/ wood heel
this adorable charm bracelet is staying with me. I couldn't let it go once i put it on. sorry.
freshly washed vintage: lace up gauze sun dress, abstract knit shell blouse, lace up polyester maxi, bright quilted 60s sheath, astrological print 70s maxi...seriously one of the coolest prints i've ever seen!
oh and we bought another pumpkin :)
50s embroidered wool dress, 60s rayon cocktail dress
oh i could NOT resist this dorothy look a-like for next halloween (if its a girl) you can also see the crazy print from a 60s sheath dress on the right.
hey, since I haven't done this yet hows about a bump pic..I find that I'm much larger than most of my friends who are prego..mostly because I have a thick layer of fat over it..but yeah. there is a baby in there.
Our neighbors across the street just had a baby boy and they went to carter's today to pick him up some clothes. While they were there their oldest daughter, shes about 4 or 5 years old picked us up this adorable giraffe finger puppet. Isn't that the sweetest thing?! It was adorable.
Well anyway, that's some of what went on today. I will have a proper preview later in the week. I will be photographing and measuring items all week long to get items up in the shop as quickly as possible. Thanks everyone!
