Hello Again....


It feels like I haven't blogged in forever. There has been what seems like an endless amount of film papers and film viewing I've had to do since the start of this semester. I have managed to go to a few estate sales and some films at the Redford in between all of my homework. Above is an outfit I wore to class last week. I was really pleased with how it all came together. The dress was old stock and still had the tags on it. It's a "Versatiler"....."The dress that goes everywhere and does everything" It's also suppose to feel like cashmere, but I don't agree (it is soft but not that soft). The shoes are a deep chocolate brown. I have been on a quest for the perfect brown vintage heels. I wanted suede and a 40's style. I found these at the last estate sale I went to for a whole $2.50 and they were everything I wanted and more. Definitely the cheapest pair of shoes I have ever purchased.

Dress and Purse: eBay
Pin: Grandma
Pearl Necklace: Mom
Shoes: Estate Sale
Here are the other shoes I found last weekend at the estate sales I went to. The top lizard pair were purchased at the same sale as the brown suede ones, also only $2.50. The pink ones were purchased at a different sale that same weekend, $5. This sale was super!!!! I got a vintage quilt with turtle appliqu├ęs on it for only $5 and it is in super condition and will fit a twin size bed. I also got a really great 40's suit jacket and a cute home made 50's blouse and skirt.

I'm really enjoying the fall weather here.....definitely my favorite season for sure! What yours?

***OH! I forgot to add in my last post something important about keeping out smells. Heat will bring out the smell of B.O. in clothes so I always wash in cold water and line dry.

Cute as usual! I love the pink shoes best. What will you wear them with? I once had a 1940's vintage coat that was fake cashmere and the label inside said "Cash-miracle!" LOL
