Vintage Finds!

I've had some great luck with vintage shopping lately. I found a dress for the Valentine's Day Formal several weeks ago in a great little shop. When I drove by it last Sunday they were having a sidewalk sale and everything was $1! That same day we found some great hats and coats at a garage sale. Peace got this beautiful periwinkle hat with fabric roses, velvet ribbon bows and a delicate veil. ($5)
A cameo necklace on a gold chain ($1) and gold flower earrings ($1.)

Peace's pink overcoat ($10) and white enamel brooch ($1.)

Soft off-white jacket ($1) and gold leaf brooch ($1.)

My fabulous Valentine's Day Formal dress ($35.) It's made of stiff taffeta in an indescribable color with a full skirt and black velvet collar set off by rhinestones. I topped it off with finger-waved hair, black gloves, and black velvet pumps from a thrift store ($8.) Unfortunately the fabric is delicate and the underarm ripped while I was dancing. It's mend-able.

Black velvet hat with rhinestone detail (which will go perfectly with the Valentine's dress!) ($10.)Black full length dress with velvet covered buttons on the sleeves and velvet ribbon trimming ($1.) I have no idea what I'll wear this too, but it's gorgeous.
