I managed to sneak in this mini shoot while it stopped drizzling--not even five minutes after, it started pouring! It's all good though--you see that yellow green business on the deck? That is crazy amounts of pollen, luckily most of which got washed away in today's rainfall. Thank goodness! I was beginning to feel like everything was getting coated in the mossy sneezy stuff.
What? Oh why, yes, this is the vintage dress I featured a few weeks ago on an Etsy post. I was surprised and pleased to find that it was a handmade piece when I received it! That means it is definitely one of a kind and feels that much more special. I will definitely enjoy this dress and cherish it for years to come!
I've been on a vintage kick lately. It is partly due to last month's shopping ban (which I told myself didn't include secondhand and thrift purchases) and maybe partially due to the thrill of finding something amazing out of an overpacked rack. I like the idea of adding totally unique pieces to my wardrobe that still works within my style.
Best of all? It feels more guilt free. All of the thrift pieces I find are less than $5, and I love to support vintage sellers with amazing handpicked wares. I feel totally green, but still get the same rush as when I finally have an oh-so-special Anthropologie piece in my hands.
