Vintage shopping list















Guys, I need help! I'm a vintage shopping addict! I try so hard not to shop but when I'm at vintage shows like The Manhattan Vintage Show and come across amazing staples for my wardrobe it's soooo impossibly hard to not shop. Because it's so true that nothing haunts us like the vintage we didn't buy. Vintage pieces, for the most part, are one of a kind and I rarely see dupes of items unless they were super mass reproduced like maybe in the 1990's. So, when you see it, you have to buy it! 

Unfortunately, I've been vintage shopping like crazy lately. I've placed two Etsy orders, been shopping from Instagram and did some vintage shopping at actual stores this past weekend. I've now officially run out of space in my office to store all my vintage clothes and accessories. I have so many clothes that I'm going to have to start selling them soon...BUT I always tend to have a shopping list of vintage pieces I'm on the hunt for. I think this is so important. It also makes it that more special when you find that special piece you've been looking for and can cross it off your vintage shopping list. 


This perfectly pink coat I found at The Manhattan Vintage Show from Swannee Grace  (@swaneegrace) was right at the top of my shopping list. I've been looking for a coat like this in any color for ages. I nearly fainted when I laid eyes on it. Lol! The fact that it was pink meant that it had to come home with me. Another recent score is this amazing silk skirt from Arsenic Kitty Vintage (@arsenickittyvintage). I've been in LOVE with their Etsy shop for years. They always have such well-curated pieces that I can't pass up. I'm so glad the weather was warm enough to wear it. I passed on wearing tights under it mostly because I don't really have any. But this was the perfect outfit since it got a bit chilly in the evening. This pink coat is so cozy and warm.
