Some Not So Recent Purchases and Acquisitions

First, let me apologize for my absense. There have been a lot of changes in my personal life, with a lot more still to come. I try to not get too personal on here so I am keeping it to myself for now, but as things progress I will tell you all more. What I will say is that I am happier than I have been in years, and I'm very excited for whats to come :-)

So, here are a bunch of pictures of things I have bought or acquired in the last 4 or 5 months.



Carved bakelite earrings.
Ebay $10

40s rayon dress. Estae sale in LA.
$2

It has cute little cutouts at the neck.

And petal like scallops on the waist.

This was given to me. Its black and white with rhinestone buttons that I sewed on.

The inside lining is red.

This was a Viva purchase.
40s rayon Cheongsam dress
$160

Its purple and lime green. I couldnt resist!!

Mexican raffia tote.
Estate sale
$1

Another Viva purchase.
Cotton playsuit.
$95

This was a free estate sale find. I wish I would've taken a 'before' picture. It was in such a sad state. Holes and tears all over, missing all its buttons. I figured I'd try to save it since it was such a pretty dress. 

Its crepe and really beautiful. I had to soak it 3 times to get the stains out. Then I had to mend all the tears and hols. Then replace the buttons. Once I was done I put it on and realized that its way too long for me!! So now I have to hem it. 



This is another purchase I made at the estate sale in LA. They're 30s beaded shoes and they are amazing!!! The interior is velvet and all the beads are perfect!

I love them! The only problem is that they are just a tad too big for me. I don't know if I should pad the toe or just sell them.

I love them though!!!
