Step In Time








Hat: Vintage, Thrifted
Jacket: Vintage, Thrifted
Dress: Vintage, In my shop!
Bag: Vintage, Thrifted
Boots: Vintage, Trade Me

There was a pair of boots that I bought when I first got into 90's clothes back in 2008 that were my absolute favourite. I wore them every single day, scuffing down the heels so far that I would be lopsided when I walked. I got them from a thrift store in my hometown. Eventually I of course ruined them completely and had to throw them out. 
Finally a pair, three years later popped up just last week on Trade Me and they were in my size! I don't think I have watched anything so closely and I got them for a steal too. They have been glued to my feet since. I could not be happier to be reunited with my favourite shoes and all the nostalgic memories they bring back. Especially when paired with a 50c acid wash denim jacket I got around the same time, but that's a different story!
We took these photos down the street at this lovely park in front of a huge beautiful home. I will show you that another time as the sun ruined all my pictures of it and it will look so much creepier in different weather. 
Thankfully we got there early enough this time so we could take photos before families came to take over the playground and sneak into the back of my photos. Caleb and I went to the mall after that for lunch, I lusted over a pair of clog sandals and then we went back home for my Trade Me duties.
I don't think I have mentioned my store on here before. It is on the New Zealand version of eBay called Trade Me and the dress I am wearing in this post (and now really want to keep) will be up tonight along with a bunch of other stuff you will have to pry from my stone cold hands, including my favourite high waisted 1960's swimsuit and the prettiest swiss dot ballerina dress. I plan to keep the tapestry bag for myself until guilt takes over and I list it. I have been looking for one forever and this is the perfect size!
Hello to all my new followers! I hit 200 the other day and couldn't believe it! Thank you so much for reading and I am trying my best to reply to all of your lovely comments. Also I got tagged by a few people to share some facts about me, but that will be in my next post I promise!

  16. hey lady bird,

    haha omg your comment had be going!! And I did chuckle at that giveaway bit (Gah I will NOT join your giveaway...go away!!). Anyway, I indeed was wondering what trade me was (since you reference it a lot so I figured it was a NZ thing) and it sounds cooler than ebay for sure (what does ebay even mean?). Also, those boots rule and would be glued to my feet too if I ever happened upon them at a thrift store.

    I've been following your tumblr and now ima follow your blog! followed :)
