Flirty 30s Frou Frou

People often ask me how I can part with all the lovely vintage things I source from my shop or cull from my collection.  My answer is that it takes a lot of tough love and restraint not to hoard it all. Once in a while, I *do* keep what I find because they feel like a gift from the vintage gods. An adorable 30s blouse and deco hat found me in Montreal and probably my favourite find to date, a DEADSTOCK 1930s gown + slip set with 'birthday cake' colours and 3-D blue flowers, followed me home yesterday.  Which of these fabulously 'frou frou' lovelies shall I wear to my birthday party today? Stay tuned! What's YOUR favourite vintage find?

Oh my, those are stunning!! I can't believe the deadstock pink gown; what a find!

I always do wonder how you vintage sellers manage to part with such lovely things, haha! I've been cleaning out my closets lately and it's hard saying goodbye to good finds, even when they don't fit! ;)

The best part is that you can wear them awhile before you sell them:) You have some fabulous things in your shop.
