Polkadot Me

This is a lovely dress that friend and fellow Etsy seller Katie (Dose of Happy) pointed out to me when I was at a big vintage textile event a few weeks ago. We both loved it and I said right away "Well if you're not going to buy it, I am." I figured it would go into the shop - people adore polka dots (well... I adore polka dots and the general consensus is that the rest of the world seems to as well!) After a heavy overnight soak in oxyclean and a bit of scrubbing, I put it on to go do a photoshoot and decided that it wasn't going anywhere except my closet.

With vintage clothing, finding something that's perfectly fitted and flattering is not easy... and you don't give it up easily when you do find it!

SHOP UPDATE: Braggin' About Baggage

With summer coming up fast (thank goodness!) I wanted to go through and list a bunch of great bags on Foxburrow Vintage! Sometimes I will collect a bunch of things in a theme (like belts, or ties, or bags, or shirts) and list them all together for a nice bit of cohesion. Plus, listing the same type of item helps me get through it all faster. So without further ado ... Braggin' About Baggage...

Yesterday I went on a big buying trip and stocked up on amazing things to fill the shop. Expect to see lots of 1950s dresses flooding into the shop in the coming weeks and keeping the stock lively! A few have already been listed and you can see them here in the Foxburrow Vintage Etsy Shop!
