Some styles that I love are just not flattering on me... The sort of big tent dresses and what-not. Wearing them anyway!
Sitting on the swing we hung from a tree... The neighbors house is behind me lolzzzzz They get to witness my amazing modelling. Lucky them, huh?
This was the sort of dress I wanted to buy when I purchased that overpriced one I talked about here, that wasn't even vintage :(
This one is 80s, I adore the glorious 60s and 70s versions, but they are rare and expensive. I found this one at an inexpensive Downtown Vintage Market that is kind of awesome. They even have a cafe and bar.
It's purplish, cotton, has an elephant/paisley/floral print and is thick enough so you can just wear it w/o worrying about being too sheer. I love sheer, but it often means having to REALLY figure out proper undergarments to make it work. So you don't get arrested or whatever.
But, like I said, this stuff is not really flattering for me. Fuck flattering!
Here is a nice chunky rear view for you!
Vix is a vintage fairy making one of my vintage dreams come true!!! I have ALWAYS wanted one of these bastard massive cuffs and she sent me one. X-man loves it, Girl London tried to run off with it, because it's amazing. THANK YOU!!!!
This is a vintage handbag that was handmade from some old super soft denim and embroidery. It was an inexpensive Etsy purchase. I really like it!
I am wearing a vintage shell necklace from Antique Addict. One of the dopest vintage stores in Tampa with the nicest owner ever. She's been there forever. X-man and I would shop there as teens in high school. She was always so sweet and encouraging when I started my own business. Great lady, small biz owner, appreciates vintage, has so much knowledge, very kind and helpful---and has great clothes at great prices!! I do miss her.
Kind of a crappy pic! The other necklace is a hand carved coconut one from my first trip to Puerto Rico with the X-man... Probably 15 or more years ago.
Anyway, lots of second-hand goodies here so linking up to Bella's SecondHandFirst!!
Love & Light,
