Two weeks ago, I ran down to a "going out of business" sale for a Dallas vintage clothing shop. I could have spent days looking through all their clothes, but I only had an hour or so to spare, so I sped-shopped and came away with with 5 fabulous new vintage dresses... for $60 total! Woohoo!
This weekend, there was a new Vintage Clothing and Jewelry Show that I was very interested in checking out, so I picked one of my new vintage dressed and headed out for more shopping. There were a ton of amazing clothes there, but I didn't buy anything this time. It seemed silly to buy even more dresses when I'm not even sure when I'll get a chance to wear the ones that I just bought. But I still had a blast at the show and I saw a lot of other ladies wearing fabulous vintage attire, which was a lot of fun. I'm going to cross my fingers and hope that it comes back again next year!
And I really enjoyed wearing my new dress. I think it has a very classic shape that doesn't look too terribly "costumey", so I think that this dress this will get a good bit of regular use in my modern wardrobe. I don't wear dressy outfits very often, but when I do, I LOVE wearing vintage!
