my latest finds

Photobucket

I have had some good luck with shopping lately, and here are my most recent finds. Some 1970s dresses, a dust pink coat and a vintage red vanity case. I also found a vintage dress that I am trying to date; I think it is late '30s, but maybe it's early '40s...

Gorgeous finds! I would have been over the moon with the red vanity case. That looks beautiful! I can't wait to see you model the clothes. I'll wait patiently ;) beautiful :) x

Your finds are always enviable, oh, how lovely they are! I found a detachable lace collar yesterday, but it doesn't fit the dresses I have, because they have wrong neckline shapes for it. :(

These are so lovely. I love the light going through these pieces.
Thanks for the comments and for reading my blog, by the way. I hope you like An Education whenever you do see it.

That little suitcase is adorable. Is the interior in good shape? I love to use my vintage suitcases and make-up cases for storage. Great find with the clothes, too.

Advice on trying to date a dress...introduce yourself first and be polite about it, these vintage dresses are old-fashioned girls. ;)

My favorite is the doctors bag! Always wanted a good one, the ones I find are always torn to bits. Great finds!

Gorgeous finds, my fave is that red vanity case, oh how I want one!

Kristina Karenina said...

I love how your photographs are always so feminine and ethereal. Its as if I'm looking through a hazy photograph from the past. But the blue dress is gorgeous, the ruffle trim and the sheerness makes my leather-loving heart skip a beat. Beautiful.

You've had great luck! These are all ace finds. I especially love the sheer dress and the peter pan collar and of course the beautiful light that you somehow always manage to capture in all of your photos.
