Now I present to you, the love at first sight dress:
I know right, to die for!!! It's so, so dreamy. The perfect little cotton Summer dress and the cutest peasant style neckline. Now admit it, you would have done the same thing if you were me.
Do you want to see what else I got??? I mean come on, I know you do!! I picked up a total of 5 dresses, three shirts, a strapless bra slip, and a cute pair of wool children's winter pants! All for the high price of $150. EEK ! That's like $30 bucks a dress so, that's not so bad is it? I also picked up 6 pairs of vintage 40's & 50's shoes for $3! Yup that was all. I wanted two of the pairs but had to buy the lot of 6 and for $3 bucks it wasn't so bad because the 2 pair of shoes I wanted are killer and they fit me. They were the only ones that did. It amazes me how good I am at eyeballing the sizes of things and being right. Does anybody else do that too?
If you guessed that the two pair of shoes I wanted are the front two, you are right! $1.50 for each pair I wanted and a bonus of 4 more pair of shoes, no complaints here!
Okay back to the clothing! In my lot was also this cute little R & K Original light green Summer dress. If you've been reading my blog for awhile, you know how much I love an R&K dress! This one is exceptionally nice and has adorable bows on the shoulders!
Love the embroidery details on the bottom.
I love the print on this top and the color used on the sleeves, collar and pocket. I'll be wearing this one over my jeans for sure! These were some of my favorite pieces, more clothing to show but that will have to wait for another time.
Before I forget, I also picked up these three working fans for $12 bucks. I love old fans and happen to really love the color of these. Plus they still work...why buy cheap plastic crap fans when you can buy well built, still working, metal vintage ones?!
Oh what an awesome night it was and oh what an auction high I got. I can not tell you how rare it is to find a whole lot of vintage clothing come up at an auction. You might get a dress here, or a pair of shoes, but never as much as what was in this auction. I let a lot of things go because I just didn't have the $$$ I wanted to spend on everything. I had to decide on what I really wanted and pool my money for that. I still think I did really well for the money I spent. Proving to myself once again that you can find bargins still out there. You just have to put the time in to look and have patience.
