Vintage Wrap Up │ 5.22.15

This is a late post.
But, we're in a holiday weekend.
It all evens out.
Below are some of my favorite finds this week.
Happy Memorial Day, friends.
Thank you to all the men and women who have died
for our wonderful country.
We acknowledge and thank you.

This jacket. This gorgeous, gorgeous jacket. This thing is the
find of the week. It's the tiniest bit big for me, 
which is the reason I'm selling. But, holy wow. It's
gorgeous. Late 60s, it's literally one of the best jackets
I've come across in the last five years.


 Love vintage Hawaiian dresses. This one? This one is for your
little Hawaiian princess. Roughly a size 6, and it
makes me really wish I had a little girl to dress.
The colors alone say "Aloha."


Who doesn't need a good sleeveless shirt this summer? 
Or two or ten? This one is brand vintage new. 
Still has the tags, circa 1980s.
Cotton, super lightweight, and the tangerine orange
color is telling you (telling you I say) to take
a tropical trip.


Yes, this weekend is the unofficial start to summer.
No, you don't need these boots now.
Yes, you will in just a few months ... if you don't live
in the Sacramento valley. I'm not even sure I remember
what snow looks like. But, I bet you do! Faux fur, late 60s.
Size 8. This is one of those finds I should keep for me.
I'm beyond redundant with this comment. 
But, it's true.


This 1950s skirt is back in. Gorgeous pattern, fits a very small waist.
(You can't tell but I was holding my breath for this picture ... no seriously. I was.
I got out as soon as I could.) But, I couldn't pass up the chance to put this
lovely thing on.

Let me say this. One great thing about vintage is that you'll be wearing something no one else will. (Most likely). But the other amazing thing -- and what I value greatly -- is the quality fabric and make that vintage clothes offer. Not oddly enough, you can only find this same quality in new high class, haute couture lines. So, while I don't have $495 to buy a YSL or Kate Spade skirt, I've got this one which looks, feels and gosh darn it, in all respective ways, is almost the same thing. If not better. Nearly no one in American will be wearing a duplicate like it.
Need I say more?
Vintage is the best.
