acquired

The yellow and gray dress is a vintage 60's frock from Secret Lake.

Sometimes my insatiable appetite for vintage (and pretty things in general) becomes overwhelming. I tend to acquire new things so frequently that I couldn't possibly share them all on Fancy Fine. It's even worse these days because I'm constantly shopping for the store, which means of course that I always find a treasure or three to keep. So, having a quiet morning to myself, I decided to share a few things around my apartment and inside my closet. Um, one of my closets.


The heart frame contains a photo of my silly parents when they were newlyweds. Their 30th wedding anniversary is next weekend!

A beautiful hair bow made by Alexandra Grecco, a gift from Frankie.

My outfit for the day: a vintage dress from Dear Golden and a little velvet hair bow.

The silver heels are from a vintage/thrift store called Clothes Contact and the other pair is from here.

The white bag is from a flea market, the striped one is from Bohemian Bisoux, and the leather one is from Omnia Wears.




Amazing clear heels from Mother's Daughter.

those clear heels are the most beautiful shoes I've ever seen!
(I'm feeling a little envious of your awesome closet(s)... XD)

I love the dance shoes - did you change the sole? Most dance shoes come with suede soles that you're not supposed to wear outside. I wear my tic-tac-toes everywhere, but I wonder if I'm the only one : /

Christina: I didn't change the sole but I did stick on one of those Dr. Scholl's non-skid patches. I haven't really worn them much yet so I'm not sure how well that works out on the streets... hopefully I don't have an unintentional Risky Business moment!

Hahaha 'one of your closets'. I find storage issues constantly competing with my desire for new things. Sometimes I aspire to be one of those people who has a super-simply wardrobe with a perfectly edited collection. But then I open the doors in an attempt to cull.. and can't bear to move any of my pretty things!

Love your dear goldern dress :)

Well, your closet is obviously way too full and I should probably come over and help you clean it out. :D I have Monday the 13th off from work. Maybe we should go on a thrifting adventure. When are you free?
XOXO

Have you had the chance to wear everyone of them at least once? I'm wondering because I have some "new" vintage that I haven't wear yet and I only have one closet!!(but its gonna blow up soon..)

You make me look like a minimalist. I didn't think that was possible.

Dulcie said...

Tomorrow I am going to burn half my wardrobe and start from scratch. Ha. Seriously though, your wardrobe and organisational skills are to die for! xx

Clothes Contact is my favorite vintage shop in SF. It was my first experience with by the pound vintage, and I really appreciate that they have rad stuff at better prices than a boutique. Glad others are finding stuff there as well!

Bird On A Wire said...
