Vintage home ephemera; I'm really into anything vaguely French Provincial or Art Nouveau.
Walking away from this clock was SO HARD.
Totally had to get a photo of this Mary Katrantzou Fall 2011 situation. Though since this is vintage, wouldn't it be more accurate to say that Mary Katrantzou was inspired by shit like this?
Morningstars: don't you wish you had one of these on hand for the next you are street harassed?
And finally, this mystical BunnyAngelUnicorn that I am totally throttling myself for not buying when I had the change. Completely polarizing, this thing either inspires hearts for eyes or vile disgust, and I am firmly in the former camp. *___*
I did buy this really fantastic Vagina N' Butt Fruit caftan dress. Also, I am an 8-year-old for immediately thinking of vaginas when I saw it. Wait, am I allowed to say vagina? Will this blog be censored?!
Also brought home a paint-by-number Jesus, because, obviously. I was most excited because it looks like He's in the video for Enjoy The Silence.
John found this fucking incredible Freemason ashtray.
I also got this emerald velvet coat that goes down past my ankles. Features bracelet-length sleeves and heavy silk lining. Clothes are just not made like this anymore! Also, it was a STEAL. Still kind of shock that I own something so beautiful, and for such an affordable price...! I never promote things on my bog because, ew, but I highly recommend that my Chicago-based readers check out this vintage sale. The next one is on July 15th and you can click here for more info.
And I wore my new vintage favorite dress, which I am lobbying to have featured on Rachel Maddow's Best New Thing in the World Today segment. It is so beautiful and floaty and makes me feel like I'm living in the world of Cocteau Twins meets Rodarte Fall 2011.
