Real Vintage, Son

Blouse: Urban Outfitters
Skirt: J. Crew, hand-me-down from my aunt
Tights: Urban Outfitters
Shoes: vintage, Valley Shoes
Bag: vintage, Mardane

The other day I decided to stop by ACTS Thrift Store on my way home from running some errands. I figured I’d just drop in, scan the purses, belts and shoes, maybe find a cheap belt. Well, I was very lucky that day because I found these vintage navy heels for, get this, $3.99!! And they came so close to being snatched up by a fellow vintage hunter in the store.

The last couple of times I’ve gone to ACTS, there was a super-tall, Viking-esque guy there with his loud and bratty red-haired son. I was wondering why I kept seeing them, but the day I found these shoes, I found out what the guy was looking for. Right after I picked these babies up from the rack and moved on to the next aisle, the dad and son came right down the other end of the aisle and the dad said, “Hold on, let’s just look at the shoes here. We’re looking for REAL vintage, son.”

Whew, that was close!

As you can probably see, they're just a little too long for me, but their width is AA, so the narrowness keeps them on my feet.

I was trying to show off the purse better here. My hand looks weird because I'm holding the chain in it, but you can't see the chain.


  1. Good find on the shoes thank god you grabbed them first :)

  2. This is such a lovely look, the tights and blouse are gorgeous! Those shoes were a fantastic find, great job nabbing them before the vintage-hunters ;) Haha I laughed out loud again reading it, even the second time around!
    M xo

  3. I love this whole look! The tights are amazing, and awesome find on the shoes! I absolutely suck at vintage shopping, I can never find anything that fits me and when I finally do buy something I never end up wearing it. Lame, I know, but what can ya do? :P Anyway I'm loving your style, yay!

  4. love those shoes! good catch :) it goes well with those tights too.

  5. This outfit is perfection! Guh, my comments are always the same, but I really am always this impressed.
