August 5, 2010Thrifted Vintage Clothes!
By Sara In AZ
Sooooo, one of my huge obsessions is vintage clothing. I love it. I have loved vintage clothing ever since I was in High School. I remember I would watch all the black & white shows back then and want to dress exactly like the women on them. I really loved Laura Petrie from the Dick Van Dyke Show. And Donna Reed too! I was always particularly obsessed with the super full skirts with the petticoats – I just am soooo in love with that look. My only problem is finding vintage that fits me! It seems like all the women back then were sooooo tiny! But, I still love it all anyway.
I was out thrifting last week and came across a few interesting items I wanted to share with y’all.
First up is a cute little aqua blue shirt dress/day dress.
I soooo wish I had a mannequin to put this on so I could show you how pretty the full skirt is.
Here is a close up picture of the pleats at the waist.
The dress has a nice detail down the front where the buttons are, and also some cool button closures.
Here is the tag. Looks like it is ‘Avalon Classics’ – I think!
Next up, and gorgeous taffeta flocked glitter skirt. I love this skirt sooooooooo much but it is teeny-tiny. I had to buy it anyway!
I almost hate touching this skirt for fear the glitter will all fall off.
Here is a close up of the flocked glitter areas.
There was no tag in this skirt. It is possible it was homemade, but I did not really think so. Maybe the tag fell off?
Lastly, this super cute maternity top. I am not pregnant, but I just thought this was the most darling top. I cannot remember ever, in all my years of shopping vintage, coming across any maternity clothes. I wonder if they are hard to find?
The shirt has all these little pleats down the front and back. Here are the pleats down the front.
And here are the pleats down the back. Just darling!
The buttons are so cute, they each have a rhinestone in the middle.
The tag is the best! Stork – A – Lure Maternities! Love it!
So that’ it y’all! What do y’all think? Did I find some treasures?
