Yellow Floral 60s Dream Dress

It’s fall in the south, but it sure doesn’t feel like it. Our temperatures have wavered between 75 and upwards to 90 degrees the last couple of weeks. This is not me complaining. 85 degrees is a welcome escape from the hot hot heat of a Memphis summer.

During a Memphis autumn I’m constantly wearing summer dresses with cardigans and booties. It’s my go-to look. I recently purchased this dress from The Dainty Hoof and it is already one of my favorites. Its bright yellow and bold colored flowers just make me feel cheery! The peter pan collar is adorable and it has pockets! POCKETS!

I absolutely adore this dress and I’m sure it’ll get another wear before the temperature drops! I’m counting down until the  weather gets cooler.

What’s the weather like where you are? Are you transitioning your summer style into fall? Let me know!

October!

Hearts and Hearts Vintage has a couple of exciting things planned for October. First up is Tako’s Treasures-a vintage pop up market in downtown Memphis for the month of October. For the entire month Erica of Tako’s Treasures is curating a vintage and art market featuring local vendors and artists. I’m so excited to be getting the exposure that this location gives. The space is amazing and it is filled with amazing vintage clothing, shoes, accessories, house wears…you get the point. If you’re local, definitely check it out! It’s located at 7 N. Main, Downtown Memphis from 11am-7PM every day in October!

Gingham on my mind 

 

I’ve been dreaming of the perfect  gingham dress for summer and I’ve finally found it!

I picked this blue and white gingham dress up from Target and I couldn’t be happier with it. It’s 100% cotton, so comfortable and breezy! The skirt is very full giving it a fun vintage inspired look. The dress is available in a small up to XXL!

 

Are you on board with the gingham trend? I can’t get enough! 

 

 

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!

Fell in love with a…dress?

This dress. This vintage 70s knit dress has been in my closet for about a year. I bought it for Hearts and Hearts Vintage, but when I measured it and saw that the measurements were my measurements? Well, I had to try it on. And it was perfect! I immediately deactivated it from my shop and hung it in my personal closet. And that is exactly where it remained for the next year.  A couple of weeks ago, as I was organizing and preparing for a pop-up shop, I decided to re-list the dress. It has  been hanging there for a year and a beauty like this doesn’t deserve that. IT NEEDS TO BE WORN. And worn it will be. It  sold yesterday and I wasn’t prepared for the emotions that came with selling it. I mean, I’ve sold over 300 dresses and sent them off without a care in the world,  but this dress? When I got the notification that it had been purchased I seriously got teary eyed. I cried. Over a dress.  A fantastic dress, but still a dress. It took me the rest of the evening (and trying it on and taking selfies) to get over it, but I did.

My emotions still surprise me.

Squee!

-I thrifted a handful of 1960 vintage doll patterns. I planned on using them for crafting, but I can’t bear to cut them up. They’re so neat! I’ll figure out something. Any ideas?

GAME OF THRONES! TOMORROW! 

They DID add another Firefly actress to the Dallas Comic Con line up. Summer Glau! Now, I shall wait patiently for them to announce Gina Torres.

-I’m super in love with this Pastel Pink Heart Shaped necklace from ladybirdlikes on Etsy.

Honey Maid’s response to the Anti-Gay backlash they received made my heart happy. 🙂

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.
