Yet, that's what it comes down to.
I've been thrifting!
Yeah, another pair of black shoes! My 7th pair now, I believe, and that's a lot considering I only have two or three other pairs.
|30's-style Mary Janes as you can see|
Might write a blogpost about that some time.
€0,50 and €1
|That thing I forgot to crop off the picture is a thread, not a hair. :)|
An umbrella brooch is always a good idea in this sea climate.
And this flower thing - don't have a sweater or dress I can combine it with yet, but that'll be fine.
Cute simple blouses, one can never have enough of those, eh?
And I really don't have that much - a cute pink/white one with a huuuge hole in the back so only wearable with a cardigan, and well, that's about it. (apart from a few not-so-simple blouses, but those are a little harder to combine as well.)
In other words, these two thrift store ones are more than welcome in my wardrobe!
€2,50 and €3,50
As you could tell, my wallpapers are pink and so almost every picture I take, especially when it's sunny out, has this pink filter... :/ In the photo on the right you can see the blouse really is blue, not lilac or pink.
I had always thought light blue wasn't really my colour (someone in my childhood probably once told me that some baby blue top didn't become me and I have never forgotten about it since, you know how those things work) but with a white skirt, some cute pastel blue flats or socks and nailpolish or a brooch or bakelite bangles - I think that would actually work for me!
Now if only I knew where to get myself some girlie blue footwear and bangles hehe.
But no seriously, this blouse will be okay.
|(this lighting thing is getting ridiculous now)|
Moving on to the other one then!
I like the print, the colours, and it has a high gypsy rate. (is that politically incorrect? I meant it positively though: the cute embroidery (inspired) ruffles.)
Yet again, I'm already struggling with how to combine this cutie. But I thought this and my Mum thought the same: How can I not buy this - some day a matching clothing piece will come my way.
Ohh my goodness!
|I love this kind of drawings! Only a few colours, cool shadows - gorgeous.|
Another 1920's book about girls; poorly written but you can look at it for hours!
It translates 'the Two Sisters' and in another blogpost I will give you some more details - look forward to terrifically cute drawings inside and rhymes that make no sense!
I also bought a few thingies that in no way relate to vintage, I won't tire you with those. :)
