Sorry I’ve been M.I.A. for a few days. I was off on a pleasure trip to Toronto for a little getaway. I had a great time visiting with friends, vintage shopping and having some amazing chocolate cake at Dufflet’s! I purchased some lovely vintage dresses and brooches, take a peek below.
Just look at this amazing 1940s/50s oven! Sadly, I didn’t buy it.
I have an obsession with late 50s/early 60s shirtwaist dresses. The last time I visited Toronto, I bought the below maroon shirtwaist dress. This visit, I found the exact same dress in yellow for $20! Meant to be mine. ;0
A friend of mine took me to a flea market, where I found some super cute vintage pins and a pair of lucite fan earrings. Note the 1940s chevron pin below and do check out my post ‘A Look at Chevron.’ Also, isn’t the umbrella pin sweet? I have a thing for umbrella pins. I’m not sure why, I just do! Stay tuned for an upcoming post all about umbrella brooches.
I couldn’t resist buying the Bettie Page Captain dress in red. It was on sale! I already have it in navy, but thought the red would be great for Spring and Summer.
I also bought the below sweet late 50s/early 60s dress, it’s taffeta I believe. I love it and it fits me perfectly. I really do envy those in Toronto who can go to some great vintage stores all the time!
Last, but certainly not least, I bought several other 1940s and 50s dresses. I didn’t photograph them one-by-one, but you’ll be seeing them in future outfit posts!
