Happy Halloween… Vintage Style πŸŽƒ

This black and orange QUILTED dress is my costume today!  I’m going as a 60’s girl 😊

The bottom half of this dress is seriously quilted!! I’m going to be so warm when I take my kiddos out tonight!!

There is even a pocket –  perfect for for keeping a secret candy stash!! πŸ˜‰

(This dress was half off at an Estate Sale – so it was $1.50)


Simone is going as Laura from Little House on The Prairre. She got her outfit from a church sale for $2.

The older lady that checked us out said she had made the dress and hat for a barn dance she attended when she was young.


Friday Vintage Fashion – #6

Β Happy day before Halloween πŸŽƒ

I think it’s fitting that my vintage dress today is black with orange accent flowers!

My beautiful halloweenish dress…

Keeping warm with a jean jacket…

Truly getting into the season’s spirit with a pumpkin orange sweater…


I accessorized with a retro-flipped out hair style held back with a vintage orange scarf .

…and I can’t forget my pumpkin-pie earrings that I scored at a craft fair!

Happy Almost Halloween Y’ALL!

Altered vintage #1- orange button-up

This embellished burnt-orange button-up shirt literally called my name from across the thrift store rack.

The price tag read $3.09 – which meant I could buy it πŸ˜ƒ dispite it being too big!

This is the first time I’ve altered anything, so I was more worried about doing it successfully than about taking pictures to show how it was done- sorry!!Β Since I plan on doing this more often, I’ll get better at describing the process!


I kept sewing inch seams under the arm down to the waist – about 4 times- till I got the shirt to a good size.
Then I created an inch seam atop the sleeve although down the sleeve. Β Finally, I took in the bottom arm seam 2 inches to create a better arm fit!

Of course- I’m more of a dress girl…

This shirt turned my summer dress into a fall outfit πŸŽƒ

I LOVE how the shirt turned out πŸ™‚ Well worth the $3 and time it took to sew.

Vintage Fashion #4- a shawl

Friday Fashion- Vintage Style

Today’s Vintage Friday Fashion features my beautiful daughter Simone and her vintage blue shawl.

Simone looked adorable during our camping trip as she wore the shawl every morning and evening to stay warm in the unusually cool weather…

Shawl: $3 (Salvation Army)

Vintage Fashion #3: Β  an A-line skirt

Friday Fashion – Vintage Style

This vintage skirt was my mother’s! She wore it for my baptism when I was a week old ❀️

* Vintage Skirt – free (family heirloom)

*Tank tops (Target- I absolutely must wear a tank top in the summer heat and I have yet to come across a vintage one… Probably not really vintage attire)

*Wooden necklaces $.49 (thrift store)

* vintage thermoses keep things cold/hot even into the next day… They are absolutely amazing!!!

Vintage Fashion – sun dress

I absolutely love vintage clothes ❀️

I wear vintage clothes almost everyday… And I want to encourage others to think and dress outside of modern fashion!

I admit it feels a little silly to pose for a picture – but I want to start showcasing Β  vintage fashion on the blog 😊

Please bear with me as I learn how to take pictures that best display vintage outfits!

$6.50 Summer Dress

This ruffled dress is perfect for the hot humid weather we are having today!

Before I could wear it, though, my husband had to trim a few inches off the bottom for me!

(Short girl problem!!)

This dress has been so fun to wear! I went garage sailing this morning and was complimented so many times on my dress! It was a great conversation starter and a sneaky way to encourage thrift store shopping!
