Dice and Sailor Pants

This past weekend was the Bloomfield Hills Jewelry and Vintage Apparel Show. Its a twice yearly show and tends offer the cream of the crop selection of vintage clothing. This is my third year of attendance (don't know how I didn't hear about it sooner) and I have to say I was a bit disappointed in the selection this year. Granted, I didn't get to the show until it had been open for several hours, but I have done that in the past and still walked away with arms full of goodies. I suspect that the lack of good estate sales this past year might have something to do with it. Regardless, I was still able to find three really nice pieces.

One of which is this vintage dice bracelet. I love novelty items and this was too cute to pass up. Plus, if I ever make it to Viva Las Vegas, this bracelet will be a great addition to an outfit. I also bought a cute dress, which I will have to wait for spring to wear, and a purse that I will share with you all tomorrow.


It got pretty chilly here this weekend, so I was finally able to break out some of my fall clothing. I have had these vintage sailor pants for a few years now and never had quite the right top to wear with them. I recently found this vintage wool sweater at the thrift store and I think they match pretty nicely. I also have been living in these shoes. They are comfortable and are oh so cute!

And you might be able to tell in the first photo, I re-dyed my hair -- as it was in great need of a touch up. This time I tried Loreal Fiera Power Red in the shade Ruby Rush. I liked it alright, no major complaints. We'll see how long this one lasts until it begins to fade.

I went, too - my first time. Saw many pretty things, but vetoed several as Future Cat Toys. Succombed to a Victorian necklace. But the ambiance was worth it. Sorry I didn't run into you, Emily!
