Thrifty Finds

bing crosby songsI’ve done a bit of thrifting/estate sale-ing/ ebay-ing lately, so today I thought I’d show you all some of my finds!

the great gatsby soundtrack

I found these three records at a fantastic local estate sale a few weeks ago. Bing Crosby and Gershwin are favorite artists of mine, and how could I resist the soundtrack from the 1970s version of The Great Gatsby? I’m thrilled to add these little gems to my collection.

1920s edwardian scarfI found this scarf at an adorable thrift shop while I was in Chicago. I believe it is from the 1920s. It has some stunning bead and rhinestone work and looks quite fetching tied around one’s head. It’s made from a gorgeous piece of silk, and only set me back $1!

downton abbey shirt

This final find was one I originally thought would go in my Etsy shop. However, once I got it, I knew I would have to keep it for my self. It is an Edwardian era blouse that is just oh so Downton Abbey. Because skirts were so high-waisted during this time period, the blouse is a bit of a crop-top length on me. I was recently reading about the Victorian revival styles of the 1970s, and how young women often wore antique tops such as this. Immediately I wanted to pair this little guy with some flared jeans and chunky wedges. When I do, I’ll be sure to post about it!

The top itself is in gorgeous condition, and I’m especially smitten with the mother of pearl buttons.

Have you had any thrifting luck lately?
