There's something about crochet dresses in shades of white that just gets me. This one, which Amelia from New Old Fashion Vintage kindly sent to me, is a sweet and girly change of pace from what I've been gravitating towards lately. I'm in that end of winter funk that only summer-weight fabrics and light colors can cure. Amelia even knew a bit of this dress' history, it was previously owned by a woman named Lillian who worked retail in the 50s and 60s. Its not often I get to hear the stories behind the vintage clothes in my closet, but when I do, it makes me appreciate them even more.

Today, Amelia has been kind enough to offer a $50 credit to New Old Fashion Vintage for one lucky winner. Pretty amazing, right?

To Enter: Visit New Old Fashion Vintage and take a look around, leave a comment here with a link to your favorite item in the shop and where you'd wear it. Need some inspiration? I'm digging this wide brim hat and this Coach cross-body. Good luck!

I would wear it with wedges (white or nude) and a crossbody bag. I can see myself wearing for errands on the weekend or summer get togethers.

I actually love this velvet skirt because it could transition easily from winter to spring:

I'd definitely wear it with a fitted white top and some braided sandals, add a bucket bag as well!

I'm totally lusting after this, despite the fact that I'm a woman and it will probably overwhelm my slender frame: https://www.etsy.com/listing/179400418/pullover-sweater-vintage-80s-fishermens. I have a feeling this could be my new favorite sweater. Where would I wear it, you ask? Um, I'd pretty much never take it off... JordanDaleSolomon@gmail.com, launching thrift-junkie.blogspot.com.

I dedicated this morning to choosing what I want from Shop Jujus and I chose the most AMAZING rabbit fur vest. I've been hunting thrift shops everywhere for a fur vest or jacket and just haven't come across the right one ...and here it is, with a $70 price tag on it & a $75 shop credit thanks to your amazing blog!

Thanks again Julie!

http://www.etsy.com/listing/180199698/black-straw-bag-vintage-mod-purse-60s?ref=shop_home_active_4


as the winter weather finally thaws, this black straw bag would be ideal for spring and summer. i love black straw and wicker, particularly for evenings, in the warmer months, the texture is whimsical and the black lends some sophistication. i would use this bag a lot, definitely for evenings out with friends, enjoying some iced libations as we watch the sun set and night fall somewhere outside.
