As promised, here are some of the goodies I brought home last weekend. I hit four thrift stores in one day of shopping- it's my annual birthday present to myself. The first three items are all from a vintage clothing store/secondhand shop that is so large it takes hours to go through it all. I forgot to take my camera, but you all would die just to see how crammed it is. And on many of the items, the prices are really good. I was totally in heaven.
This is a 60s polka dot dress. There is a zipper on the left side and a shawl collar- it's hard to make out the details with all the dots, but it's really cute and fits perfectly. There are a couple of spots that need mending, and I may need to replace the zipper, but not a bad buy for $2 (the red belt was $1). I now have three navy/white polka dot dresses, but can you really ever have too many? :)
I also bought this boucle beach cover-up for $4. I could use it as a lightweight cardigan as well, but I really needed a beach cover-up, and this fits the bill nicely.
I was on the hunt for vintage blouses in particular. This one will be nice with a gray or brown pencil skirt.
Most of all, I was looking for cardigans. Red ones in particular. This is a nice beaded cardi with a scoop neckline, that I can wear with all those polka dot dresses! It's modern, but classic. I did find a beautiful vintage beaded ivory cardi at the same shop as the Lilli Ann suit, but that will be in part II.... ;)
