As you all probably remember, I went to the Vintage Expo last month (you can find the posts here and here.) At the expo I got a beautiful rayon dress with a red top and black bottom, I am guessing from the late 40s. I found a hat that goes so nicely with it at the same expo. The hat is woven with red, black, and gold grapes or berries around the brim. I adore it. So I decided to wear it to a charity event the other night. I just added some black stockings and my bright red shoes from Anthro.
At the event I met another woman who was dressed in the most beautiful peacock blue vintage dress. Of course I had to meet her, so I introduced myself and we got to talking. She said she loved vintage, but with having young children, she found it was difficult to wear. I agreed with her, but let her know that once the kids are old enough not to slobber all over you, it is fantastic to wear vintage. She mentioned she had had the dress she wore for years. I was jealous she had kept her figure after having THREE babies! So it was a fun night because I got to meet one of our own kind out in the world, not just in cyberspace!
