We had a rare under 90 degree day in Memphis so I spent the day in one of my favorite vintage dresses usually reserved for fall. I usually stay as far away from my polyester vintage as possible during the summer, but this one is so breathable and so darn cute, I pulled it out.

So many things about this dress make it my favorite. The color, the accordion skirt, the button up top, and hello!! I could match it to one of my pairs of spectacles! I purchased it from one of my favorite Instagram shops, Shop Maeberry! Instagram shopping will be the end of me! It has replaced Etsy for my go to vintage shopping.

70s Dream Dress

Oh, you know. Just hanging out in a(nother) dress I originally purchased for the shop, that ended up in my own closet. Actually, this dress has barely been in my closet. I love it so much that I’ve been wearing it any chance that I can get. 70s flowy, lightweight, bohemian, floral dresses are my jam. And this one ticks all of those boxes and makes me feel super cute!

Thrift Finds!

I went thrifting over the weekend and found an amazing dress! It’s a vintage uniform of some sort . Pink with white accents, chest pocket, huge hip pockets, button up front, elastic waist and a matching belt. I initially bought it for the shop, but when I tried it on, I knew it was going in my wardrobe! I love it! Cute, right?!

It has joined a place on my list of best thrift finds! The others on the list are equally awesome and of course I want to share them with you! First up, comics!

Found 12 of these DC comics in a stack of books at a second hand store. I had to have them! They’re super sized, about the size of 2 normal comics, and in great condition for unprotected comics from the 70s!

Going to grandma’s suitcase! I had one of these as a little Sophierocious and am pleased to have one again. I use it whenever I get a chance. It’s been used as a toiletries case when traveling and a case for my skate wheels.

This vintage P/K umbrella is definitely my favorite find! It’s a floral umbrella from the 60s. I found it at a yard sale in West Virginia for $1! I love it. It was in perfect condition when I purchased it, but now has a few nicks in the fabric caused by some battery acid. Repairing it is on my to-do list!

I adore this mint green dress that I found at a yard sale. It doesn’t fit me, but it’s one of my favorite finds. It’s so rare to find a vintage item in perfect condition with tags! I was stoked to add this to my collection and now to Joy’s Vintage Closet.
