Socks: Forever 21
Jasen and I spent this afternoon and early evening walking around Downtown Fullerton in Orange County. While we were there, we discovered the coolest vintage shop, Out of Vogue. In addition to some amazing mid-century furniture and housewares, they had a small collection of tastefully selected clothing. I saw a dress printed with sailboats that I wanted so much and totally would have bought if I were working full-time right now.
I thought what I wore today fit Downtown Fullerton’s retro vibe pretty well. I found this robin’s egg blue dress at Quality Thrift several months ago, and I liked how it looked with my clock socks and bow shoes. The only problem is that the dress is snug in the bust and kept wrinkling up on top, which was REALLY annoying. I’ve learned my lesson and will wear a more minimizing bra with this dress next time.
As Jasen and I were walking back to our car, we stumbled upon one of the Crepes Bonaparte food trucks and decided to buy a Nutella crepe. Crepes Bonaparte is owned by my cousin Danielle and her husband, Christian, so we were excited to finally try one of their crepes! It was delicious, and I think Crepes Bonaparte needs to visit Pasadena =)
Isn’t their truck cute? Christian and Danielle also recently launched a bratwurst truck called Brats Berlin.
Aaaaand...to add still more text to this loooong post...I ended up buying three vintage items at that estate sale I went to yesterday, but they’re items for babies! Long story short: I thought there would be a lot of women’s clothing at the sale and there wasn’t, but they had tons of dolls, doll clothing and vintage baby clothing. So I thought, “Dang, these clothes are CUTE! Why not add a few baby items to my shop?”
