Outfit Post

Tonight I went out to a hockey game, so I thought that I would dress up. I wore this adorable 1960's dress and jacket set by Irving Korny. I found it a few days ago at a thrift store and immediately fell in love. It wasn't badly priced either, at only $7.


Sometimes it can be really fun going out dressed in vintage head to toe. Tonight I went to a local hockey game, a hobby of mine. I wore this there and sometimes it was hilarious to see people's reactions. Most of the time people do enjoy what I wear, though there have been a few unimpressed stares, mainly from younger women. I do have to say though, that most elderly people do enjoy seeing me dress like this on a regular basis. 

The accessories I am wearing are a 1950's velvet hat and three bracelets all from a thrift store. Sadly the bracelets aren't Bakelite  but I like them anyways. They actually can fit onto my wrists, which is surprising because vintage jewelry usually doesn't. I do wish I had some Bakelite in my collection that actually fit me. One day I suppose!

Thank you for reading, and have a wonderful day!

A Very Casual Day

Today was a very casual day for me, as you may have noticed. I have been battling a rough cold this past week and finally I am starting to feel better. With the snow still outside I needed to dress warmly, but figured I could probably get away with a sweater and pedal pushers. 

Sweater: Christmas Gift
Pedal Pushers: Freddie's of Pinewood
Glasses: RayBan (prescription)

I would also like to show you two dresses I found that almost made me faint at the site of them.

Last night I was out at thrifting at my local Value Village. I was looking through the "vintage" rack they have and came across these two stunning party dresses. I must admit, at first I could barely believed my eyes. They are both from the 1950's and are in extremely good condition. I tried them on in the changing rooms, and they actually fit me! There was also a black party dress with sequins on the bodice, but that was much too small in the bust. 

When I reached the checkout I paid a measly $50 for these beautiful dresses. Now I normally wouldn't pay that much at a thrift store, but I absolutely could not pass them by. 

I wish you luck on your next thrifting adventure!

Quick Outfit Post

Hello everyone, this is what I wore today. It is a 1960's Windsor Dress that I found at my local Value Village. I find the colours in it quite pleasing to the eye, and I thought today would be a good day to wear it. I am not feeling too well at the moment, so sorry for this post being so short. Thank you for reading, I shall post more when I am feeling better!
