I'm so glad you didn't laugh at my muff set; I must say, I'm surprised how many compliments I've received on them so far from my sweatpants-and-ugg wearing peers. It's oddly touching.
Anyway, remember how I mentioned it was just $10.00 for the pair? Well, that's because a very fabulous antique store near my hometown was having a very fabulous President's Day Weekend sale; needless to say, I snapped up quite a few other extreme bargains too!
Oh, and I have a little story too... over Christmas Break I saw a rust colored 1930s crepe dress at the antique mall and was quite smitten. Unfortunately, it wasn't cheap, so I reluctantly gave it a miss. It continued to haunt me, though; when I saw a 30s or 40s rust colored hat later on at a vintage store near my University that would've looked smashing with The Dress (yes, it's a proper noun now) but was much cheaper, I snapped it up as a consolation prize.
Fast-forward to the President's Day sale I went to last weekend... and there was The Dress for FIVE DOLLARS! I was over the moon. The pictures unfortunately don't do it any justice, but I will have an outfit post coming soon. It's the intricate 30s tailoring and detailing that makes this frock; so very flattering and beautiful.
In addition to the muff set and 30s crepe dress, I also snatched up a striped 1950s day dress for $5.00 (no pictures, but you can see the sleeve poking out of my closet in the next photo, lol!) and this ethereal 1920s sheer black dress for about $20.00. Not a bad price at all for a 90 year old gem like this!
I rarely give away my vintage sources, but I highly doubt I'm going to cue a mass migration to Southern Vermont... so, if perchance you're travellin' through Brattleboro, Vermont, be sure to swing by Twice Upon A Time on Main Street. That's where I snapped up these fabulous finds. They always have a Ten Dollars Or Less box out full of things that have taken too long to sell. I find gorgeous Victorian, 20s, and 30s garments in there all the time... definitely worth a peek if you're nearby.
Post Script: I just realized I have over 100 followers now... hooray! Thank you all so much; I'm so thankful to each one of you for being interested in my vintage musings : D
