I've been finding so many perfect pastel dresses lately. I just listed all of these in our Etsy shop.
I can hardly believe it's July, this year has flown by and now it's almost time for the big antique expo that happens three times a year here in Portland. The July one is my favorite because they have an entire outdoor section for Summer so it's a ton more vendors. Unlike places like Los Angeles, we don't have very many flea markets or outdoor sales in Portland so this is a big event that always brings together a lot of vintage loving folks. I always do a lot of shopping for the store at this event so expect some fantastic new pieces to come in mid-July.
I also just bought my ticket for the Prohibition Picnic, happening July 25th. I finally found a 30's cotton dress (that of course needs a bit of mending like all older cotton pieces) which was a big relief. I can't wait to see so many ladies and gents in their 20s and 30s finest! If you want to attend, you can buy tickets for the picnic (or the whole New Deal Weekend) here and RSVP to the facebook event here.

It's been crazy over here, I feel like I can't process (clean and mend) our inventory quickly enough. Every vintage loving lady in town is coming by looking for a bridesmaid dress or something to wear on their upcoming vacation. I love this time of year! Here's a couple cotton cuties I'm listing in our Etsy shop this afternoon. How good is that mint color?!

I just picked this dress up for the shop last week and it's a total favorite. I love the horse weathervane embroidery, the oversized pockets with huge buttons and it's the softest cotton. Simple dresses like these with unexpected details fill my closet. It was hard not to keep this one! It's available on Etsy here and in our Portland shop.

When I was a kid pink, purple and blue were my three favorite colors. My Caboodle was those three colors and my favorite school bag was too! As an adult I still find myself drawn to this (very 80s!) color combination so of course I needed to share these new arrival dresses as a set. And for the record, pink is still my favorite color and I thrifted a pink and blue Caboodle recently that I treasure! Some things never change.
