Vanity + Vintage #06

Hello dear fashionables! This week has brought me happiness and it's not even Friday! As a completion of my market & thrift/charity shopping introduction from the weekend here are more items that I wanted to include for the #06 installment of Vanity + Vintage. I hope that you enjoy!

Perhaps there's something specific that you've found recently at a vintage shop. Let me know, you may be featured in an upcoming V+V series with me.
This is an old mini-briefcase that I bought years ago. I finally took it to an expert and she told me that it was an early 70s piece. I loved it so I included it in the shoot anyway. 
 
I love this new bag, and purchased for only $2 bucks
This (pink/taupe) printed retro blouse is going to be a favourite (for mixing) in my wardrobe, I can feel it! $4










The other goods:  Shoes: Anthropologie, Swallow necklace: Maylee's Jewelry, Belt: thrifted, Beaded necklace: flea market, bag-Thrifted/see above Ann Taylor, Denim-Cheap Monday, Blouse-charity shop.

*In case you have missed out on what the V+V series is all about read more about it here!*

 
*Update: Deadline for V+V entries are now closed.

  1. Madison- that case is Steve McQueen cool, so of course it's in the shots. The whole outfit is fresh- not a whiff of vintage to it to me, I love the mint green belt with the orange/tan leathers. The shoes are pretty chic too.
    Liking the series. I may have to send you something- would LOVE to be featured by you! xo.

  4.  Thanks lovely Bella! I looove that case! Sometimes, I use it as a purse and carry it on the train (think, little paddington)! haha! I was feeling prints this time, the shirt is an old 70 top that is huge, but I pinned it nicely! I'm thinking of a few featured images in the V+V series, probably send me  image after I pick a theme, etc. *Will be in touch dear, after I get it all together!  :)

  22.  I love the contrasting colour of the belt and the red in the top. The little suitcase is a cool find as well.

  23.  I am ashamed to confess that the only vintage thing I've ever bought is a leather jacket from Gianni Versace collection. But that piece can't be called vintage as it is from the 90', while vintage has to be from the 70' at most. Love your find.

  24.  Hey there dear,
     Yes, unfortunately your cool 90's piece isn't vintage, but that's okay. real vintage should be 50yr. or so old. I'm glad that you're a vintage fan as well. Cheers * love, Madison -xxoo
