Morning in Portland.
Today my mother had a hair appointment in Portland and afterward we went to Powells books and Buffalo Exchange. I cleaned off my bookshelf the other day, so I traded in some books for store credit, although they didn't take my textbooks, which was a little disappointing, but I guess I did get them over a year ago,so they're outdated. Buffalo Exchange had less vintage than ever, but the prices have improved (I got Marc Jacobs pants for $20!).
Kitty skirt-Dewberry Vintage.
Dressing room pictures:
Too big, and missing a button...
Adorable details, terrible color on me.
This modern one was cute, but too straight at the bodice. This is why I buy vintage, it actually fits.
This dress was so cool, and I wish I would have purchased it. I don't have any long dresses for daytime (Although I do have a butterfly halter jumpsuit that kind of looks like a dress, but that much awesomeness needs a post of its own).
I ended up getting a vintage bustier to add to my collection, and pair of Marc Jacobs striped pants. I've been looking for a good pair or striped pants for a while because they look so much better than blue jeans, but are still just as comfortable. Look at how the stripes match up with the leg and the pocket, a mark of a well made garment.
