Wearing two of my favorite vintage finds this week. One is the trusty blue wool blazer - just slightly too small in just the right way. The little moth holes on one sleeve somehow add to the character. I can't believe how many times I've worn this $8 find - and will continue to until it crumbles!
When I can't make up my mind on an item while shopping I always leave it - and if I can't get it out of my head for the next few days then its time to go back. This green dress was just like that! It is actually a vintage dress from a Kansas City Department store in the late 60s/early 70s. The amazing part is that it is a set - along with the dress (that has pockets!) came a matching belt, matching coat with an additional belt and a silk scarf that matches the lining of the coat. So I find all of this in perfect condition that fits like a glove for $25. And I walked away! All because the color scared me. But then I couldn't stop thinking about it and thinking about it... so I rushed back in a week or two later and thank my stars it was still tucked in the back. I don't think I'll ever wear the dress and coat together - its a little much on the green - but they work as separates and the color is growing on me. Like moss. get it? because it looks like...
