Hi everyone! Hope your week has been cruising along. I am looking forward to the weekend as usual. This weekend I am attending the flower show at Navy Pier and am pretty excited about it. I look forward to sharing some photos from that with you all on Monday. In the mean time - today I have something very special to share with you. My very good friend Angela has just opened up an etsy shop - Booth Fifty-Nine - which is full of vintage goodies and I am here today to give you a little sneak peak of what her store has to offer.
Booth Fifty-Nine first started out as a booth in an antique mall in Peoria, Illinois - hence the name. The booth quickly expanded and has now found it's way to internet. Angela's shop is full of a wide range of beautiful vintage apparel and knick-knacks. A week ago she was sweet enough to send me some items from her shop to try on and I honestly fell in love with it all.
For this first look I will be honest - this is not a dress that I would have typically bought out on my own, having said that I am even more glad Angela sent this piece my way! As soon as I tried it on everything just seemed to work. I was afraid with my body shape that it may look too boxy, but the neat pattern helped lengthen my body, aaaand can we please talk about the adorable collar? This is a dress I definitely look forward to wearing a lot more down the road.
As soon as I saw this blue and white striped dress I immediately thought of Margot Tenenbaum. I debated recreating her look but I don't think I am edgy enough - I also don't own a fur coat - but anywho... the yellow cable knit sweater went perfectly with the dress and shoes so this outfit was pretty easy to piece together. It is a classic preppy look perfect for work or a Sunday afternoon. The color palate also works perfectly for this upcoming spring!
All of the items came in great condition and looked practically new. I highly recommend you all check out Booth Fifty-Nine. I am currently eyeing the Periwinkle Vintage Belted Tanktop myself. Also, Booth Fifty-Nine has an Instagram account you can follow HERE to see even more vintage goodies that could be headed your way very soon.
Outfit Details: Dress and Sneakers c/o Booth Fifty-Nine, Brown Heels - DSW, & Purse - thrifted.
I hope you all have a beautiful day!
