Old Hollywood

I have recently become interested in vintage shopping...it is so fun to explore the stores exploding with old rock tee's, fabulous shift dresses and retro accessories, and there is nothing better than picking up a unique piece you know no one else will have. 

This weekend I popped into a wonderful vintage shop in Yaletown and found this amazing dress...I fell in love with the fabulous Old Hollywood feel and knew I couldn't leave without it!

  1. I reallly love this vintage dress. Is it from that vintage place called "retro vintage" or something like that? I got an amazing 70s vintage piece there last year. Vintage shopping is so fun!

  2. I saw these photos on chictopia and just had to come to your blog, for two reasons. 1: This dress is amazing in so many ways and I am dying of jealously, which of course I had to tell you :) 2: We're both Vancouver girls (and I'm dying to know where this vintage shop in Yaletown is!) I'm your newest follower- I love being able to connect with other Canadian bloggers, and local girls in particular, since we're relatively rare in the blog world.
