Good evening, dear reader, and welcome to this, my second ever blog post. Today was a great day. After work this morning, I popped in to some of my favorite antique stores. I hadn’t really planned on making an excursion of it, but after finding so many envy inducing treasures, I began taking pictures to document my day.
First off, here’s what I wore today:
I date this dress from the mid-50s. It was made by Jay Herbert of California. I love the embroidery detail on the skirt and the wide portrait collar.
Shoes: Forever 21
And some of the wonderful things I couldn’t buy. If only I had unlimited money!
An amazing vanity:
I wish I could tell you that I wear something just like this to bed every night. Alas, I cannot.
Some wonderful hats, that although were reasonably priced, were still out of my justifiable budget. I may try to recreate the black tilt hat though.
I did buy one thing though. A beautiful black vintage ostrich plume that will make some lovely hat very, very happy someday.
Stay tuned for the next post. . . the first Vintage Excursion of this blog! I’ll be going to the Magic Castle, which is every bit as mysterious and fabulous as it sounds.
Ta for now!
