Check out this lovely dress, in silk no less! Gotta love polka dots too!
Vintage 50's maybe early 60's? $55 total steal!
7 yards of fabric (Marcus Brothers) for only $12.50!!
I think fate played me a hand on this one. I was thinking how lovely the blouse was on the image below and then I started to look for similar fabric that might match. The red in the print above is little stars so I found it quite a patriot print. Perfect fabric. I even have enough for bold mistakes lol.
Speaking of fabrics, I was browsing through etsy and I came across this rayon fabric below. I like to look for rayon vintage fabrics as they are hard to come by. I thought it was a pretty nice print and when it arrived I liked it even better in person. I had it laying about on my table for a few days and when I would see it, I would think what a great print it is. This is the sign of a great print! This is going to make a nice dress or blouse. I'm hoping for a dress but it is 3 7/8 yards so it may be pushing it. I thought this was a deal at $25 for vintage rayon!
My very first carved Bakelite bracelet, so very cute, I thought quite reasonable at $22.
A blouse is certainly on the radar for me. When I can find some time, I plan to tackle this along with a skirt. I've seen this Michael Miller print around and about on vintage inspired blouses and I just love the print. It is now increasing difficult to find this fabric so I picked some up on Etsy.
I bought it from CottonStudio. They have some super cute prints and they even have Dysfunctional Family too.
I've also bought two Bernie summer dresses both on sale. I like the fit of her dresses for me and I say when you can find a good vendor where the clothing fits well go for it! So, ModCloth is having a big sale thanks to Brittany and Bunny for the heads up and I think I've now blown my clothing budget! I bought this dress below at ModCloth
I love bows. The one thing I'm a little worried about is the color. Normally yellow isn't quite the color for me but I think with the splashes of red it might very well be super cute. I also very much admired this dress on Stephanie.
Now a girl's gotta have a bag to go with her summer dresses, right? Well, I'm in luck Modcloth also was having a sale on a wicker bag.
Not to bad for $35 eh?
Whenever I see awesomely fabulous gauntlet type of gloves, I grab them. They don't come up for sale that often and check out this wonderful pair with the tags still on from Christian Dior! Fall here we come.
