Vintage Pretties

Thursday, February 19, 2009

Waking up late on a Saturday morning and then spending hours walking around tables and displays of mishmashes at thrift stores in search of vintage treasures is my idea of heaven. Unfortunately I don't always get a chance to do it, but luckily these places offer very much the next best thing...



Perfect strangers, Chatham Ho Treasures:





Ghostly dress, My Favorite Vintage:





Bird and botanical Illustrations, Slinky Malinki Cat:



This weekend I hope to get some secondhand shopping in, wish me luck and hope you have a great weekend also! :)

beautiful photographs. My mom has some photos like those of her and her sisters. Isn't in interesting how classy and beautiful those are, for some reason they are not cheesy. If we were to do it today it would be challenging to match the elegance of these (i think). Love that dress, flowy and fabulous. Happy shopping.

Great finds! I love going to flea market; especially during the the spring when its just starting to warm up. I thought we were getting closer but awoke to snow today...

Just lovely Gabbi! The two photos are very pretty and the frock is very chic! I wish I had the guts and chutzpah to get dolled up in fine clothes like that everyday!

~ Thank you dearest Michiko :) Hope you had a great weekend!xoxo

~ I feel the same way, thank you Suavageblue,. Despite being obviously haunted I so want it :)

~ Now I can't stop staring at the watch too dear Asherette :) I've lowered my posts to three at a time so it'll hopefully upload faster... Thank you!

~ That's very true Laura, I took a photo like that once when I was in my very early 20's with a boyfriend :) now it's a small source of embarrassment. Thank you!

~ Hope you had a nice weekend, Thank you L! :)

~ Thank you dearest CC! Such a fan of that dress also… xoxo

~ And I love that red trench of yours dear Seeker, thank you :) Hope you had a lovely weekend too!

~ I agree flea markets are such fun! Thank you Mrs.H, hope you had a nice warm and cozy weekend :)

~ Thank you dearest Sam, I wish I was a bit more girly in my everyday wear too. I’m sure you’re attire is very pretty though. How could it not with all those gorgeous girl inspirations you draw? Hope you had a lovely weekend.

~ Thank you dear Café Fashionsta! xoxo

~ Muchisimas gracias querida Agnes! *besos*

~ I thought the same thing dear Dooder! In fact I emailed it to a friend who is designing her own Wedding gown on Friday for inspiration! :)
