Splashes of fall color
This morning Twila Jean and her little baby picked me and we went to Portland for some Etsy shop shopping. Was a success, I found a dress, a knit suit and an amazing 40s dress. I am going to take photos tomorrow, except for the 40s dress as they forgot to take the security tag off before we left, so I have to take it back, have it removed, and then I can list it. Funny thing is whenever they leave security tags on nothing happens, it doesn't set off any alarm or anything. So pretty much its just there to annoy me. I did of course find a little something for myself (well, more than one thing, but I made myself pick). It's a 1950s blue dress in such a pretty cut with a full skirt, I think I'll wear it Wednesday.
We did get super excited upon finding a red 1940s suit, something Twila Jean has been searching for for years! It fits her perfectly, something to check off of her "lookout list" :)
I found this skirt and belt at work yesterday, they seem to go together pretty well. The skirt is a Jantzen, they make the best skirts, such quality wool and tailored lines. I have two 50s and one 30s Jantzen wool skirts and they are my favorite, better than others I have. I feel fortunate to live in an area where quality wools were once made, it's fairly easy to find Janzen wool anything and the Pendleton label is everywhere. I would love another 30s Jantzen skirt though, mine is a little small but I just can't let go of it, it's the most beautiful pink! Ah well, more are out there somewhere.
