Vintage Kick and Vintage Kicks

I've been on this vintage kick for awhile and I love mixing in vintage pieces with my normal things (either in outfits or accessories or in decorating). I found some amazing vintage pieces in the last few days.

On Friday, my brother and I had a date. I waited for him at Goodwill and I found this skirt for half off.

Someone had already started altering it, the bottom is roughly cut and frayed, but it's long enough all around to re-hem it and I'm excited about that.

You can see from the side that the back panel is a few inches longer than the front. :) (oh and yes, I'm standing on a chair!)

And it's even worse on this side!! But I love the print and I'm looking forward to fixing it up.

Then today, I found the most amazing shoes and bag ever!

I spent more on this bag than I usually do (haha $18) for a few reasons. It's leather and is also the perfect length for me. And also because of this:

Can we just let that sink in for a minute?

I also think my heart was looking for a pair of shoes like this because I saw them and knew that the search was over. They fit when I tried them on and they were $5! (Also, leather and the stamp inside says "Made in Brazil")

They are completely different than what I would expect for myself. (that's a weird way to put it) But I just love them and they are comfortable - and vintage, bohemian, scholarly all at once. :)

And to end this post con photos (hooray photos!), I finally collected enough prints for my little gallery wall.
