Pumps- Thrifted w/ tags on!
Yesterday was like a yo-yo. It had it's good moments, but it also had it's not so good moments. However, the good moments did outshine the bad. For example: I needed a new guitar tuner and stopped by the music shop downtown. Across the street is a place called Rob's Vintique. It's like, the only true vintage shop in the county (I may be exaggerating, but probably not.), but I've only been there a few times. They tend to be a bit overpriced and carry mostly 70's and 60's stuff, which while I do appreciate it, it's just not me (at least not anymore). They also never have anything in my size, so I usually just skip it. Not that this fact makes it a bad shop. I hate it when shops get bad reviews for not carrying larger sizes, when the truth is that larger sizes are just not as common. But the point is, yesterday I took a chance. Well turns out I had misjudged the shop. They actually had quite a lot of older vintage pieces, including this bordeaux 1930's dress with peach-y lace (which was really alot better than it sounds now!) I'd have killed for. And their pricing was pretty standard, and even really good on some items. There were a couple of dresses in really good shape for $20-$30. They had some up in the $60-$70 range, but for the most part it was pretty decent. I saw this white 40's dress on the rack and it looked to be my size, but I passed on the $35 price tag. I'd just spent $40 on a dumb guitar tuner, and was trying to be mindful of my pocket book.
