Vintage Bug

One of my personal goals for this year was to go vintage shopping and really do it right.  You see I’ve always loved the idea of wearing vintage, and I had accumulated a few pieces from friends and a couple online purchases, but I had never been able to actually go to a vintage store and search through the masses of stuff.  It always kind of felt dirty to me and I just didn’t have the patience to ravage through the racks and racks of clothing to find a gem. 

I realize now that perhaps I didn’t enjoy thrift shopping in the past because I was going to the wrong stores.  The vintage excursion we went on in Portland really showed me how fabulous vintage/thrift store shopping can be.  It wasn’t exhausting and fruitless, it was fun! And I think I kinda got the bug now, cause I can’t seem to stop!

Here are just a few of my finds:

Just to show me that LA had plenty of great vintage stores too, the boy took me to one on La Brea Avenue this past weekend, and once again I loved it!  I walked away with three more vintage dresses (yeah, I know, more dresses!  What’s wrong with me?)  But all in all, I think I can safely say that I got this vintage shopping thing down! 

Do you enjoy vintage shopping?  Link me, I’d love to hear about it!  😉
