Recent Additions to My Closet

Over the past few weeks one could say I have had a minor addiction to eBay. I have several searches saved and I check them every day. I have come across some gorgeous dresses recently, and have gotten them for much cheaper than they are actually worth! And I needed some more dresses in my closet anyway. I think I have about 26 vintage dresses now 😉

This beauty I just won about two days ago. It is a fabulous 1940s novelty print dress that I could not resist. I can’t wait to get my mitts on this and get to wear it! I clinched it for only $33.

This is another gorgeous ’40s dress that I managed to snag for only $40! It fits me perfectly and the print is so cute. It’s from around the war, and you can feel it’s a little dainty now that all of that time has passed – 70 years! But still amazing nonetheless.

This ’50s dress was just too perfect for fall to ignore! I was bidding on this during the hurricane with the power being out so I would turn my phone on once in a while to check that I was still the high bidder LOL. It is made of a rayon silk fabric, which feels amazing and rather luxurious – all for $31!

This little number is obviously more rockabilly than vintage but I still love it nonetheless. As you can tell, it has more of a spring/summer vibe to it, which is probably why no one else bid on it and I got it for only $20! That’s a good little trick for the rest of you too – buy off season and you will tend to get better deals. And hey, with vintage clothing you will never have to worry about being “off-trend”, because it’s all classic and timeless!

What do you all think? Have any of you gotten any great finds lately?
