As I mentioned yesterday, the weather is wet and grey. So what better to do with this kind of day than go shopping!
Of course not just any shopping, but vintage shopping for spring 2012. I only spent $30! Here’s the haul.
Vintage Haul: I couldn’t resist stopping by my favourite op/thrift shop to see if I could find anything interesting for Spring 2012. Of course I wasn’t disappointed! There is a gold brocade shift dress. Perfect for summer and it has a hint of the Baroque trend that is in right now. The paisley print wrap-dress will get a lot of wear. I love a good wrap dress, especially one with 3/4 sleeves. The colours are great for Spring/Summer 2012 as the blues are the colour of the ocean. The silk shirt is more a charcoal grey than it appears in the photo and has a bit of shimmer about it. The trim has a hint of a copper shimmer too. It’s really quite pretty and I like the feminine detail in the petal effect of the collar. Both handbags are metallic mesh and were $5 each!
The Shirt: You should be able to tell the shirt is a little more charcoal coloured in this photo and you can clearly see the shimmer.
Mesh Handbag: The smaller of the two handbags is a blue-grey colour and has a thin mesh shoulder chain. The creamy gold bag has a gold chain that can be worn either over the should or short around the wrist.
I know I will get a lot of use out of this $30 spend and I promise to make sure there are photos when I do.
Do you have a favourite item from the lot? Any thoughts on how I should style my Spring 2012 – Vintage Haul?
