It appears my shoe curse has officially been broken, woo hoo! I feel like I have been searching for them for ages, but on Fun Friday (aka half-off day) at the Salvation Army, my search came to an end when I found these lovely brown woven leather oxfords which came home with me for a well-spent three dollars, yay! I couldn't believe my luck when I then came across this matching woven leather bag, also three dollars, double yay! I love that the strap is woven too and long enough to wear across my chest which is how I tend to like to wear my bags.
The whole reason I was there in the first place was to shop for a birthday gift for my friend Lucie who you may remember from the flea market post. And yes, I totally buy people birthday presents at thrift stores. I was stoked to find these cool vintage mission cocktail glasses I knew she'd love. But the real treat was the hankie. Now, in all my days of thrifting and collecting vintage hankies, I have never come across a Happy Birthday hankie that I can recall, so I'm pretty sure this one I found in a very random location among some shoes and purses was meant to be. I also threw in this vintage white eyelet detailed dress for good measure.
As if that wasn't enough, I also found this sweet little knit tank (which ended up being free since the lady forgot to charge me for it and I "forgot" to bring this oversight to her attention) AND another perfect little white dress to add to my growing collection! Fun Friday indeed!
