Trunk Show Vintage

Lily Kai Vintage Trunk Show

August 26, 2011

This past Saturday I was invited by Kristian of Lily Kai Vintage Boutique to attend her summer cool down trunk show.  We were able to shop while sipping sangria!  Perfect!!!

I used to think vintage meant “old lady clothes”. Not anymore! Do you see this beautiful young lady! Her dress is vintage! That top that I am holding did not fit (so mad)!  But how fly is that!

I left there with these two fabulous dresses!

I need to get a HOT belt for this one!

I would like to wear this with a fur faux vest and some knee high boots for the fall!
I wore these sandals to the event.  Got them from the Shoe Dazzle shoe club.  Now I am a Sole Society girl : )  Dang, my toes are a little ash… sorry!
This is my first vintage shopping experience and Kristian definitely (laugh every time I type that now) made it glamorous!!!  Make sure you check out her online store here!
Do you buy vintage?  Where do you get it from?

    I love vintage clothes! Those dresses you got are gorgeous and they will look amazing on you! Love the idea of pairing it with a fur vest. I wish I could get my hands on that blouse you are holding, that is right up my alley, LOVE IT!

    You get some of the best stuff vintage…and then you can pretty much be certain that you won’t show up wearing the same thing as 10 other gals, right? (c: LOVE the new dresses, girl!

    I am just starting to get into vintage clothes, there are a few stores here in STL and if you are willing to dig you can find some amazing pieces, like your dresses:)

    I have never been into thrifting, but I must say that the second dress is really cute!! Viewing some of the ladies on the blogs has inspired me to try thrifting for myself:-) I can not wait to see what you pair your finds with. I’m following!
