I wore this red dress a few days ago. Detailed with white buttons and piping, it's just one of several recent finds that could fall into the naval inspired vintage category ($6, Goodwill).
For another $6 on the same Goodwill trip, I also took home this amazing handmade number. Can you believe that print?! Anchors, stars, seahorses... are you kidding me?!?! It's actually a little big for me, but I am determined to make it work somehow. How could I not?
This pair of highwaisted navy with white polka dots shorts ($1) and vintage straw hat with navy ribbon ($3.50) were both acquired at the VNA Hospice Thrift.
Oh how I wish these items were mine!
Alas, they are toddler sized... lucky Clover! The vintage top (25 cents) and jeans (50 cents) were found separately at the Welfare League Thrift, a favorite place for finding kid's clothes. They seem to get a lot of vintage and, as you can see, they are practically giving the stuff away!
The Saltwaters are actually not toddler sized, and probably won't fit her for another 5 years or so, but they were only ONE DOLLAR and they're so classic, I couldn't resist. If only I could squeeze my own feet into them!
With all the red, white, and blue going on in this post, it's the perfect time to wish all those celebrating a Happy Fourth of July!
