As I mentioned in my previous post, the gods of op-shopping have been very kind to me lately! I've picked up three lovely vintage items (and could have gotten more, if only I wasn't so skinflint :/ then again, do I really need an antique microscope and collection of b'dass carved tiki walking sticks?) Still, I'm more than thrilled with these finds:
I was going to wear this coat in order to show you how truly gorgeous it is, but it is so darn hot! You'll have to wait until winter to find out!
This little cloche hat is a nice smokey green colour that is incredibly difficult to photograph properly. I'd show you that one on too, but my hair is full of rags! (Excuses, excuses.)
My favourite find of all, however, has to be this:
A train case! I've been looking for one on Etsy but shipping rates for something that heavy are absolutely horrendous! The opshop I was in actually had two - one was covered in FUR, for some unknown reason! However, I passed on buying it, as I intended to take this case travelling and I wanted something that would actually get through customs!
For now, it's perfect for storing my makeup:
Not to mention it matches my Tiffany-blue nail polish perfectly! (China Glaze's "For Audrey", if you're interested.)
This is all making me feel like some kind of film noir heroine, ready to disappear on the midnight train. My op-shopping mojo has returned, huzzah!
