Booty : Vintage Finds

I’ve been lucky with vintage lately… here are some recent purchases:

A pair of deadstock vintage sunglasses from American Rag, and a clutch from Painted Bird
I really don’t know what possessed me to buy this jumper from Painted Bird, but I just really liked the pattern and the fact that it’s a one piece. Part of me really loves this, and I have some ideas milling about in my head as to what to wear it with… maybe a zebra print scruchie?
When I saw this aloha print dress, it made me think of happy times in Hawaii. I try to make it there as often as possible, and it really is paradise. So why not wear a dress that reminds you of happy things?I guess this officially means I’m shopping for summer. I think I’m going to have to take a break from H&M, only because it’s cheap, but every time I step in the shoppe, I drop a small fortune. So it’s better to for me to go to places like Mascara Vintage, or Painted Bird.

  1. Love the Hawaiian print Dress. Reminds me of the children’s dresses you can buy out there.

    YAY! Summer is here too!

  2. I am just so jealous of that clutch, I have this huge collection because I just can’t seem to own enough.

    Where do you vintage shop?

  3. Thanks for the lovely comments!
    Hmm… I usually shop at Mascara Vintage, or a couple of thrift stores on Polk Street, like Out of the Closet, or Town School, and the Cathedral School trift on Hyde. I also go to American Rag sometimes, but the staff has been rude to me on more than one occasion, and they are expesive, so they are going to be rotated out. Painted Bird, I went to over the weekend, I really like alot.

  4. Might I also suggest heels in a clashing pattern and colour for the jumpsuit? I’d advise against neon, though, as that might take it just the wrong side of the 90s.

    We like your style. Blogs list swap?
