Another One Got Away.... But Fancy Clothes Take The Pain Away...

Stopped by an Estate Sale this AM and was planning on scooping up these awesome guys:

And of course someone swoops in before my eyes and grabs them!!! UGH!!!

 They were $20 for the pair! Whaaaaaaa! Wouldn't they look awesome cleaned up with a modern black shade!? I'd plan on only keeping one, I feel like it would be too much to have two.... 

BUT I did scoop up some AMAZING vintage clothes! I luvs fashion and this woman had the most amazing vintage clothes. I love to study how the pieces were made - it's said all the time but clothes are in no way made the way they used to be! 

Here's what I got!

Adorable baby doll orange sherbet dress - it's SO cute!! It has little rhinestones at the tops of the bow too! I picture wearing this with a neutral motorcycle jacket and flats.... just to counter the froo froo - ness of it. The colors are gorgeous in person. 

Simple black dress.

Slip. I love the detail at the bottom.

Totally 60's brocade with crystal detail cocktail dress! I have a black tie event coming up and this will be perfect!

Timeless, great fashion will stand the test of time much like a timeless great interior! 

DO any of you hunt for awesome vintage finds?! I browse thrift stores but they never have anything great like this sale I went to. I wish I was a 0 and I could've gotten a whole new wardrobe! ;)

When you have to buy a gift for a child, consider buying kids boutique clothing. Parents always appreciate the gesture, as they love seeing their little prince or princess in adorable, stylish outfits.
