Lately vintage finds have been quite scarce, although I am looking forward for spring season to dive back into the scene of a treasure hunter…. After finding these photographed finds I still can’t complain for they are swoonsome worthy.
♥ Vintage Schiaparelli Hat
♥ Vintage wooden spool ( I use them as hat stands display – great décor as well )
♥ Vintage Cole Haan Cognac fringe tassel shoes (going up on etsy-they don’t fit me)
♥ Vintage Wicker handbag ( has Lucite handle, intertwined weaving beaded work)
♥ Vintage Skeleton keys ( I collect & wear them as pendants)
♥ Vintage filigree brooch/pendant (love the patina)
♥ Antique oval frame with sweet roses on porcelain ( made in France )
♥ Vintage Fairy heart necklace ( old silver )
♥ Vintage heart shape trinket box
♥ Vintage lace collar
♥ Vintage teal leather belt
♥ Vintage Etienne Aigner brown cognac shoes
♥ Vintage Etched flower glass footed bowl ( It holds cotton balls on my vanity)
Once I do my last hunt of the week tomorrow then I might decide what will stay home with me forever and what will go in my little etsy or ebay shop cause I realized if I don't start sharing the finds I might need a storage place soon. Keep on checking both shops for updates!
Have a lovely day!

One night while browsing one of my favorite online clothing shops I spotted this dress! I melted and froze at the same time oh yes. Sadly, the money well has been running a little dry these days so off I ran to my local thrift store to quench my fashion craving.
I found two great pieces within ten minutes of picking and pulling. First a navy blue Isaac Mizrahi in amazing condition then a gorgeous former resident of the limited in a cream lace with spaghetti straps made to look like tiny roses.
I flew home very excited about my new finds and began rifling through my wardrobe draws searching for a little cream lace shrug I new to be hiding in there. This was a hand me down given to me by my friend Lee Ann. Then it was off to my accessory vault to pick out this pearl bow brooch and a vintage hat to complete the outfit.
And there you have it. The crave….a $75.00 vintage inspired dress and the cure….a trip to the local thrift and $18.00. Not that there is anything wrong with spending $75.00 on a stunning vintage inspired dress but when the budget is tight we can still satisfy our vintage fashion compulsion.
♥ Isaac Mizrahi Navy blue dress (Thrift store, New with tag!)
♥ Lace shrug ( hand me down from my friend Lee Ann )
♥ Cognac peep toe shoes ( Newport News- couple years old)
♥ Vintage Wicker handbag ( Estate sale last year )
♥ Beaded pearl bow brooch ( Thrifted)
♥ Vintage floral hat ( Estate Sale last year)
♥ Navy blue tights (Target )
Have a great rest of the weekend everyone until next time!
