Adventure-filled day yesterday in the City of Toronto. After a fascinating experience watching my hubby get suited up for a friend's wedding over at Tom's Suits, I did a little vintage hunting. Just when I was starting to get discouraged, I found some treasures that are eventually bound for the shop!
T.O.'s landmark CN Tower
Me caught in act of fondling vintage.
Yeee hawww. Thought I'd try some frocks on for fun. 40s/50s taffeta plaid hostess gown. Not my style, and not in good enough condition for shop, but a dream to twirl around in.
The ultimate find: late 1920s-early 30s polka dotted beach pyjamas!!!!!
Gorgeous, generously sized celadon (or eau de nil?) early 30s silk chiffon gown
Not sure about this one: sold to me as a Victorian nurse's uniform. I think it's later than than (label has size 34 on it), but am still trying to research it (anyone know what this is?)
Lovely later 40s floral nylon seersucker frock (needs some freshening, but it will be so lovely as someone's spring dress!).
