After seeing THIS photo on pinterest, (It was also on my recent "Currently Crushing" post) I was bound and determined to find some fun bellbottoms similar. To my excitement, I found some that are quite identical if I do say so myself.... I love when that happens!
Thrifted jeans, thrifted clogs, Anthropologie top, Free People sunnies.
So today I went to my first estate sale! I've always wanted to go. I love rummaging through treasures. Especially vintage. Both houses I went to were full of vintage loveliness. I try not to think about the fact that someone has just died though.... I walked through each floor carefully and made my purchases. As I was leaving the first house, it started to down poor and it was NOT letting up!
It rained and rained. I went to one more house...Then a few hours later the sun came out and it was as beautiful as ever! I so love how the rain cleans the sky, makes everything so fresh, and especially how it makes everything so green and full!
(This umbrella was one from grandma and grandpas house.)
I had to limit myself quite a bit on what I spent....It was the first day of the sale too so a lot of things were really quite pricy. I was actually kinda surprised by that considering they were doing the sale to get rid of things. But on the other hand, I respected the fact that they needed to make some money. I watched a few people be so rude about prices and I couldn't help but think, "then go home..." haha.
I purchased this lovely circa 1950's dress for just $5! Isn't it lovely? I got a few other things that I'm excited to have...like a Beatles record (which I'm currently listening to), a couple of vintage cameras, and a few other little things. It's easy to get carried away but I feel like I did well. Can't wait for more garage sales and estate sales this summer!
