I’m not quite sure what’s up with Portland lately…but we’ve had a rather large lack of rain and the next few days are slated to be in the 80s! And it’s May! What is going on!? I’m not complaining…it’s just…strange. And I don’t quite trust the weather…like I’m betting we’ll be back to the 50s and rainy in a week or so. But despite my distrust in the weather, I turned over my wardrobe to more summery duds… capris, sheer blouses and sleeveless dresses. Oh, how I’ve missed you all…
One fabulous thing about having friends who are in the antique and vintage industry is instant access to amazing pieces. This dress and purse are prime examples. Friends will find something that makes them think of me and with the joys of smart phones, they can snap a picture and send it to me, and I can instantly say yes or no. So when Lyndsie came up earlier this week she brought with her a car full of treasures. Meanwhile, I had been doing the same! I had a stockpile of items she had been interested in! And we just traded. I was a pretty happy camper to get my hands on a sleeveless Squaw dress and a black tooled leather purse in addition to loads of other wonderful vintage goodies.
