10 11 08

I did a bit of work for my mum over the weekend, and now I've gone and blown all of the money on eBay!! eeek! I did get some really nice stuff though.


This little sweater looks super soft and I can't wait to snuggle up in it.



I have been looking for a beaded cardigan like this for ages. I'd like to get another one in cream.



This sweater is similar to the first one but I love the pearl detail around the neck. A girl can never have too many clothes I say!



This top and skirt set is actually from the 80's but the light fabric and the peplum reminded me of something from the late 30's / early 40's and I think with the right accessories it could look like it is.



I love this little brown kelly bag, and I think I will try to find one in every colour!


Today I watched La Vie En Rose, a film of the life of Edith Piaf. I highly recommend it because it was a fantastic movie, even better if you are already a fan of Edith's music but don't be put off if you aren't because it's still a good film even if you have never heard anything by her! (Although I'm sure if you live in England you would have heard it on the Specsavers advert!!) I tried to get a video to put in the post but annoyingly i can't access youtube at the moment, so you'll have to go look for yourself!

You don't need to justify vintage ebay purchases to me!!
I love them all, specially the peach with the embellishment.

I love all the knitwear you got, especially the first, I'd like to see what outfits you would put together with them

I've been looking for beaded cardigans too!
I work at TJ Maxx, and was actually surprised to find that we had gotten in two, both by Lucky (who knew they made 50's things!) but they were $50 apiece, so that was a no go.
I really love the one I found first, which was daffodil yellow with pearls and loopy trim.
