Vintage Vibes

7 Feb

Browsing vintage shops on Queen St West was the perfect distraction on yet another snowy Saturday. On the street car busy chatting with my friend Emma we missed our stop, going about five blocks too far. But our lack of concentration turned into a great fashion find…we stumbled across Philistine where I picked up this beautiful royal blue dress with cut-out detailing & the best part was it was half-price a grand total of $16. I will definitely be back for another visit soon.

As we shuffled down the slushy streets we popped in and out of little shops here & there – one of which reminded me of a scene from that hoarders show, jammed packed with anything & everything, ladies busy screening T-shirts behind the tills. I spotted this beautiful Browns Couture hand-bag hidden in shelf blocked with large laundry bags full of material but no obstacle to big I managed to straddle the bags & nab my new find…

My last buy is the one I am probably most excited about. In 69 Vintage I found this black Coach Court hand-bag & I instantly fell in love. I love the character the soft worn leather adds, I see it as an investment piece. ….I am now on the look-out for a gold belt to wear with the dress.
