These Goodies Found a New Home in My Closet!

Remember the other day when I mentioned I went thrift shopping and brought home a few goodies?

Here's what I brought home:

A lovely vintage cotton slip. I would gather it's 60's (anyone know for sure? I find Canadian labels quite hard to research online). I know someone is going to give me flack for saying this, but I almost didn't buy it. It was priced at $6.99 and I thought that was a bit steep for a slip. On the other hand I thought that it looked pretty "new" and how often do I find cotton slips? It will make a great night gown or I have a few sheer dresses it might look nice under as well.

Bonus Points for anyone who can spot the sleeping puppy in the mirror!





I also bought this pretty faux pearl necklace. It was hanging with the plastic jewellery and I kept inspecting it to make sure my eyes weren't deceiving me. It was $3.99. Score! Now in my excitement at my awesome find (Value Village has amazing pricers who don't usually let these kind of things slip by) I forgot to try it on. Turns out it's a tad small for my neck, but I think I'll add two thin pieces of off-white ribbon to the ends so I can wear it.





And finally a black straw hat. This near mint beauty was $3.99! It has occurred to me that this hat may be 80's (it doesn't have any labels to deny or confirm this), but I like it anyway. Thoughts?




I also bought a very comfortable black jersey dress (modern, from Buffalo) with a HUGE circle skirt to wear with tights and boots in the winter (I love me some jersey dresses with tights in the winter!) which is currently in the laundry. I'm sure you'll be seeing it when the weather gets colder. And I bought a plain half slip.

Have you brought any goodies home to your closet recently? Do tell!

  1. I have found some real gems of necklaces for really really cheap at VV. I like the think whom ever prices them let a few slip so the thrill is there:P Love the slip I ALWAYS look at them but I need a vintage size 32 which is hard to find:(

  2. Daphne - One can only hope they let a few slip for the thrill of the hunt. It keeps me coming back. I have a bit of an obsession with slips. I never forget to check the lingerie when I'm out shopping.

  3. The slip is a gift. Full slips don't ride or droop and cotton doesn't get static.

    I love the hat and pearls - you did well.

  4. Love the slip! It is gorgeous, and I daresay, depending how sheer it is, it could easily double for a summer dress. :) Especially with the heat we've been having-though I am loving this cool day we've got right now!

  5. LOVE that hat! It's fantastic!! All around excellent finds! I would bet that slip is from the 60s, especially since it has polyester in it.

  6. I was able to get a couple of pieces of jewelry, including a Mallorca pearl necklace but it wasn't as much of a steal as yours. I love the clasp on yours but the ribbon should add a nice touch. Thanks for sharing your treasures with us. The other pieces I posted here http://mydesiretobe.wordpress.com/2012/05/18/fashion-fridays-sagtikos-manor-antique-and-collectible-show/

  7. Maureen - Yes! I thought of static too!

    Kate - Thanks! And I love showing you what I bought to. It's half the fun!

    WolfSong - The centre front panel is doubled up, but the rest of the skirt is just a bit too sheer for me to chance it. It's too bad though cause it's quite pretty.

    Janey - Of course! For some reason I never thought that poly was a give away, but now that you say that...I was sure it was 60's due to the font on the tag. Thank you! (and I adore your blog!)

    Brianna - I checked out the jewellery you got on your blog! Beautiful! I really like the necklaces. Thank you for sharing your finds!

  8. Lovely finds indeed! That chicly beautiful black hat in particular would have caught my eye and landed up on my head, too :) I agree with your dating on the cotton slip (60s or perhaps very early 70s), and don't think it was too steeply priced in this day and age (at least based on the prices around these parts).

    Thank you so much for your wonderfully nice comments this week, sweet Lisa, I truly appreciate them and hope you have a gorgeous, relaxing weekend.

  9. Jessica - Thanks! I'm still in denial about pricing sometimes (I need to remind myself I'd pay much more if I bought it online).

    You have a good weekend too!
