quick update

i thought i'd share a quick update of a pic of me in my new dress where i'm actually dressed. it's obviously not full length, but you get the idea. i wore my coral flower with my new coral celluloid bracelet and another fake celluloid bangle i recently picked up at forever 21.

successful vintaging.

i went to a flea market today with the intention of looking for stuff for my etsy shop. it ended up being more of a day for me finding vintage goodies for myself. dammit. here are a few crappy iphone photos of my stuff!

how adorable is this dress! i have no idea what decade it's from. it's not serged but it could just be handmade? i dont know. (excuse the frumpiness of my look)

flower detail!

"lydia pinkham's private textbook for ailments particular to women". this book is amazing, published between 1900 and 1915. it goes through women's particular problems, and prescribes lydia pinkham's tonics. awesome! (it was $6 and i couldnt help myself)

a page from a ladies catalog circa the late 19th century france. gorgeous!

celluloid bangle. it's actually more of a coral color and not bright orange. love!
