My favorite local vintage shop, Nobody's Baby, had a yard-sale on Saturday. I took the opportunity to photograph a beloved outfit dujour made all the more fashionable by my new diana mini:

Let's start with the boots from this very shop. Reasons they rule:
1. they are mod
2. they are western
3. they are both mod and western
4. they are bright yellow
As the weather gets moodier and cloudier around here, I find it important to perk myself up with bright colors, which actually look great against gray. (That must be why they have red buses and telephone booths in one of the most stylish cities ever, London.)
*skirt: Goodwill. Due to my ignorance and the skirt's total lack of tags, I have no idea where this garment originated. I can tell that it is newer, though.
*vintage 70s belt: thrifted (Virginia)
Here is a local stylish individual whose outfit reminded me a bit of the artwork on one of my favorite blogs Hooper's Electric:
Here are some pictures of the yard-sale itself taken in 1/2 frame format with my new diana mini:
And of course you're wondering what I got. Mainly art themed around roses:
And of course, Baby Eunice:
Also a repro-flapper dress which is itself now vintage, dating from the 60s. I love now vintage repros, it's like gazing back into the past which itself gazed into the past. Meta. Whoa. The dress looks pretty blah on a hanger, so I will have to wear it somewhere fabulous. Or halloween, whichever comes first.
'til next time,
