Where I wore it: The Pittsburgh Vintage Mixer
Last weekend, our neighbors were kind enough to remind us that the Pittsburgh Vintage Mixer was going on. This is something that I had read about before we left for home, information I had stored away in the recesses of my mind, never to be seen again. I'm so glad they were kind enough to think of us, because this was the perfect way to spend an early Sunday morning. Since Chris had to be at work later that day, we chose to get there super early, which was perfect because it hadn't yet filled with people. We browsed around, the space was on the small side, so I felt a little funny taking too many photos, but, man were there some amazing things. I bought a vintage tablecloth, and Chris found himself an instant collection of about 300 matchbooks. Below are a few things that I sorta wish I bought, but am perfectly fine just looking at the photos. And I finally got to meet Bess, who- I believe- helped plan the mixer, and was super nice.
After ten days of living in cut-offs and tank-tops, I was happy to have an excuse to put on a dress. I bought this polka-dotted number at a Goodwill in Portland while we were away. I've been looking for a dress like this for awhile, and this one is perfect. I think when you have a piece that pairs navy and white together, it's really easy to fall into the nautical or patriotic traps, and that was something I wanted to avoid on this occasion. So, I chose accessories that didn't exactly match, but worked well enough for 9am on a Sunday.
Yeah, I kinda regret not buying that mug.
