A view of Camelback Mountain
As you may know, I have sold my house and went on a mini vacation back to Arizona to look for a house. It turned out well...so in other words, I found a house. Yay!
Anyways, I have decided that since I've never really been there except on vacation, and don't really know much about the area, I figured it would be best to rent something for a year to make sure that I like it there.
Anyways, It was beautiful there and the weather was amazing! But because of this move, it has led me to the conclusion that I need to part with some of my vintage. Now I have tried to sell some items on Etsy but in all, it really hasn't done me much good.
So, last weekend I went to a local Antique mall to sell them 5 of my vintage dresses. But while I was there, I was able to score 2 vintage items for a total of $20. Which was great, but I still need a slap on the wrist for buying more things when I shouldn't have.
So, the first item is a 30's/40's peach satin dressing gown that zips up the front. The collar has a floral quilted pattern on each side and a wonderful fishtail in the back with puff sleeves. :)
The second item is a 40's black crepe dress? with peplum that has a swirly detail on it. Now I found this dress to be really unique so I couldn't pass up on it. Anyways, it zips up the left side but the peplum fabric snaps over the zipper. The back of the dress has a bunch of covered buttons on it but they aren't functional, instead it has a snap closure at the back of the neck. The sleeve are also very unique and I would love to try and explain them to you all, but words are failing me at the moment. Sorry! Anyways, have a look at the pictures and you can let me know what you think.
