a vintage soirée, part two


So the first official Vintage Soirée (a pop-up shop collaboration with Isla, Annalise, Jen, and Rachel) happened and it was even better than I expected. We are so totally going to do this monthly, guys! We even came up with a pretty cute name for ourselves, but I'll have to keep that hush hush for now. Our first sale involved many bottles of champagne, tons of cute ladies we lured in by calling out things like "$5 bins, $10 bins!" and lots of trying things on over our clothes. I wore a 1990's romper that was a wee bit short on me and kept flashing my bum (accidentally!) to strangers riding by on the bus. Okay, after a few glasses of champagne I may have been doing it ever-so-slightly on purpose. Anything for a laugh, right?











My outfit for the day: a thrifted 1990's romper that I was planning on selling, but it seemed like the perfect easy thing to thrown on for such a warm day. I paired it with my Fletcher by Lyell heels, a vintage hat found on Etsy, and lots o' pale leg.









Obviously we all had to don floor length prairie dresses for an impromptu photo shoot...
