This weekend I went vintage shopping with a good friend of mine uptown Waterloo. My favourite vintage store Patina's just moved into a new location next to the Princess Cafe. The owner Donna is such a sweet women and I'm so happy to support independent stores. I am always impressed by the guts of these entrepreneurial women, it takes a lot of bravery to do what they do.
I got this skirt for a steal ($28) and I believe it's from the 50's. I feel in love with the colour and length. It didn't quite fit, I'm going to blame it on the tiny waists women had in those days but I always try to see the potential in how to make something work. So I bought it, took it home and moved a few of the buttons around to make it fit my curvier waist line.
I would also like to thank my new collaborator, photographer Amanda DeLarge for taking these amazing photos.
Can't wait to show you what else I managed to dig up at the local vintage stores in my upcoming post.
