Spring Vintage Expo

If you live in southern California and your a die heart vintage lover, then you know what i mean when i say the vintage expo is like the holy grail of vintage shopping(aside from the Manhattan show)! yes, its highly overpriced, but its the best of the best! Lately my eternal clock has been all out of whack and has got me forgetting things left and right, and yesterday i completely forgot that the vintage expo was this weekend! It was not until late last that i realized i had missed the first day of the show, and i could not sleep at all that night thinking about all the goodies i had missed out on. Luckily, i woke up early today and headed out to catch the last day of the vintage expo.

I saw spotted this cute duo all dressed in 40s, and i had to get a picture of the pair!

The last three photos were some of the things i sadly had to leave behind that i had my eye on. Those 40s striped heels are drool worthy! To bad they were only a child's size 4! To imagine what little girl was prancing around in the summer in those babies!
My heart stopped a little when i saw that baby pink 20s dress. It was absolutely perfect! It had a deep v-cut in the front and back, and a bias cut with a lovely rhinestone belt, and only... $600! The brass crown was from the same booth. I wanted it to wear to Burning Man for a frilly ballerina costume, but i think i will just have to make my own makeshift crown for the price she wanted for it.
Although my piggy bank does not live up to the expense of the majority of the things at the expo, i did manage to take home a new(old) 30s cotton dress to frolic in this summer!


  1. How lovely do the two 1940s lasses look? Sounds like you had a wonderful time at the expo, and I'd love to see photos of your new-to-you dress!

  2. they were adorable! its always a real treat to go to the vintage expos (even if its to just window shop)!
    i plan on doing a wardrobe post with the dress i got once i find the right occasion to wear it out! : )
