Vintage Wrap Up │ 6.13.15

Hey friends! Hope your weekend is going great.
I missed last week's Vintage Wrap Up, so you get
the best of two weeks instead.


So, I found a black embroidered tunic to go with the ten others that I have. 
It's almost like they're searching for me to find them.
Hello! I now have (in the shop) all the colors of the rainbow and then some.


This is the 60s dress I found last week. I said I would probably sell it.
Thing is, sometimes that just isn't true. (Though, it is rare) I sell almost 99.9% of everything
I plan on selling. Occasionally, I have to hold on to one a little longer.
This dress is a part of that .1%


 I also found this little 60s number, too. They were next to eachother, 
sitting so pretty on the rack. Clearly, the previous owner had them both.
Clearly, now that I am the current owner, I will be holding onto
these both as well. It would be sad to break up the set, right?
That .1% has increased to .2%.  It's not for sale. Not yet, anyway. Give it time...


Guys, this jacket is iconic. Steve McQueen in his films (and others)  made it famous.
If you haven't heard of the Baracuta brand, you should. They're still in business, British made.
The one is from the 70s, maybe early 80s. Not made in the UK, like the original,
but still dang amazing.


This cute top was a no-brainer. Mickey and nautical?
And in Nantucket Red?
How many of my favorites can you combine here?
 I'm not keeping it,
but you can be sure I will wear it once ... or more.


Okay, while the two dresses are my finds of the week,
I'll admit ... these bean boots made a close tie. Why? Well, let's say you went
to the LL Bean website today and tried to order a pair of these right now. You wouldn't get them.
If they're like the 8-lace duck boots, you'd have to wait 6 months to get them.
They're in demand THAT MUCH.
Not my size, not my youngest son's size, so I'm selling them.
Rarely see these in Cali. Just not needed (unless you live in the mountains with snow).
So, when I saw them, the hyper-ventilation-thing began again.

I love it that simple, wonderful vintage can make me happy.
It's the little things ... always.
Have a wonderful rest of your weekend!
