Visions of Vintage Dance in My Head

I wish I could say that I wear vintage.

But I don't.

(I so *want* to arrange antique finds in a way that perfectly co-mingles with our mostly classic, sometimes French country, aesthetic.)

& in that same way, sometimes I really, truly have this desire to make vintage work in my wardrobe. Somehow just easing itself into place alongside my colorful Lilly prints & my preppy, tailored staples.

But while I adore the browsing,
& like to think I may even have a good eye for it,
I am never bold enough to actually click "add to cart."

Although, should I ever have a second glass of wine on the same night that I am feeling that intense attraction to the vintage treasures on my beloved Etsy...

  1. So much fabulosity, I don't even know where to start! LOVE the cat eye sunnies!

  2. You have been doing a lot of vintage browsing! I love the sunglasses and the high-waisted pink shorts. So cute!

  3. Vintage shopping is so much fun! There is a website that is awesome that I will have to look for and send you. I can't think of it at the moment. I also love flea markets/finding collectible stuff in there.


  4. I will take the vintage 70's Lilly dress, thankyouverymuch!

    This post is out of this world with amazingness!

  5. Great finds! I recently rediscovered my love of vintage, especially vintage dresses. It helps that Columbus has a lot of great, high-end consignment & vintage shops. Vintage shopping is time-consuming; but I like to think of it as a treasure hunt.

  6. What a great blog. You found so many fabulous things. I will take one of everything, thanks. ;)

  7. Look at those adorable salt and pepper shakers!! Would look perfect in my kitchen! :-)
