So, despite my limited budget, I have been shopping quite a few times these past few weeks. I headed out to the mall and picked up a few things, and then happened upon a vintage store yesterday called Treasure Trove Vintage that I fell in love with. It has a very nice collection of vintage from quite a few eras, has very reasonable prices, and all of the pieces are in nearly perfect condition. The woman who was working there was very personable and friendly, and I could not have been happier with the unique things I picked up there!
Please excuse the smudges on the mirror (it’s not mine and it’s super old!) But this pleather skirt is from H&M, and I love it’s A-line shape and how it’s not too short. The blouse is vintage from the 1960’s. The Peter Pan collar is very mod, the buttons up the back add extra detail, and of course I like it’s loose and flowy fit.
The next piece is a tapestry skirt from the 1990’s. I also like the length of this one, which hits just a few inches above the knee. The fabric is so soft and has a slender fit which will pair well with looser tops. The floral is perfect for summer and spring, but the fabric will carry it well into fall and winter with tights and boots.
I saw these sunglasses at the register at the vintage store and I simply could not leave them behind. I’m really into round frames at the moment, and this oversize tortoise-shell pair with green lenses is so different from the ones I have seen in the contemporary stores. With bold lipstick, these glasses give off a 1950’s Hollywood starlet vibe. The glasses didn’t say what era they were from.
This next pair of sunglasses I picked up from Urban Outfitters. I was trying to find a pair of John Lennon-esque round glasses and these were the closest that I could find. I like the gold frames and light-brown lenses. My only complaint is that they fit a bit crookedly, but that could be my crooked ears!
These shorts are from Urban Outfitters. I have been on the lookout for new shorts because unfortunately I have grown out of my pairs from last summer, so now all I have are my distressed pairs I made from the thrift store. I love the dark blue of this pair, giving them a slightly more formal feel. They are high-waisted and stretchy, making them incredibly comfortable. They are a bit short, but they aren’t too tight and have a classic and slightly vintage sort of fit.
Finally, I got these sandals from Forever 21. I purposefully sized up so I could wear them with socks in the fall, but I may have sized up a bit too much so I’m going to have another hole put in the straps. But I love the pointy toes, and the black will go with so many outfits.
If you would like links to any of the non-vintage items, just let me know in the comments! I hope you are all having a lovely weekend!
