Vintage Variety

As promised, here's a sneak peek of some of the goodies I found on my search. I haven't yet had time to photograph them on the dress-form, so these are just some 'texture shots' which I found interesting. I really like the variety of colours & fabrics in this selection.

I'm going to be quite busy over the next week, as I was last week, so after that I hope to have everything laundered & ready to photograph, then I'll list things in my Etsy store. Once I have the store looking how I want I'll post the link so you can all have a little lookie!

A mix of vintage scarves found in various op-shops... I kept the YSL... :)

Detail of scarf print. This one is from Italy.

Close-up of an adorable checked wool skirt... I love this but am pretty sure it will be going in the shop.

Really cute sheer late 70's/early 80's skirt. It needs some TLC but with a wide belt looks really good. I love the gold pinstripe running through the fabric.

Awesome tribal-print wrap skirt. I'm tempted to keep this one too, as tribal is going to be big this summer, despite that I've always liked this kind of look. But I'm trying to downsize my wardrobe, so some other lucky person can get to have this! :)

Another variation on the tribal theme, this one is a pretty sheer summer top with gold thread.

And finally, a rather pretty fern-print dress I found at the local Anglicare op-shop for a measly $6. It's a vintage size 16, so a little big for me, but I'm digging it so much I'm thinking about altering it, or just wearing it a little large with my wide belt. I tried it on & it looked ok, if a bit 'blousy'- but loose & cool is good for summer, right? :D
