The shop was overflowing with adorable vintage (and some new) items - three large rooms with dresses, bags, shoes, coats, jewelry...
There were so many things I wanted to try on! My only disappointment was that many of the vintage dresses were tiny! Teeny waists, minuscule busts -- what's a curvy girl to do?
I really loved this houndstooth dress, but I look a bit... vacuum sealed...
Nevertheless, I was still really impressed with the huge inventory and there were plenty of accessories and shoes I could have gotten. I also loved that each and every price tag featured a full description of the item, including the decade of origin and even some styling suggestions!
One of the perils of shopping in New Haven was having to park at a meter with a one hour limit! I felt like as soon as I got there I had to dash off again.
But the store has such a fun vibe, even a pile of free stuff on a table outside the door; and you can have after hours cocktail and dress-up parties there. I'd love that.
As for me:
Best part about this outfit: While I was shopping a girl said she loved my look and asked if she could feature me on the blog of Messes of Dresses, which is an online shop with cute dresses for under $100!
