Sometimes You Just Get Lucky!

Last Summer, while searching Etsy for 1940's suits, I spotted this 1940's velvet skirt suit and fell in love:
I decided that I would put it on my wishlist and save up to buy it at a later date, possibly with my birthday money. Needless to say, about a month before my birthday, it sold. I deeply regretted not being able to afford it sooner, but that is life. Then, about a month later, I came across the exact same suit on Ebay, for a mere $35! Life is funny sometimes! I immediately bought it and couldn't believe my luck. How often do you come across the same piece of vintage twice within a few months? Well, on one of my favorite blogs ever I just noticed that it was probably the beautiful Louise from Pandora that had purchased the other suit! Take a look at how gorgeous she looks in this 1940's beauty :)



I feel very lucky that I was able to add such a beautiful piece of 1940's history to my ever expanding collection of vintage!

  1. That is a gorgeous suit! I've passed things up because of price. Later I find something similar or better for much much less.
