Well, read on!
Remember the Le-Ann 80s metal shell purse from my $3 splurge? I said I was using it in a "mermaid" themed photoshoot, and here it is being rocked by the lovely Katie from Posche Models! She's also got on a Laurence Kazar 80s beaded dress that was thrifted long, long ago at Goodwill. It was actually one of my very first thrifted vintage dresses. I had it hanging on my wall forever actually! We really pinned this one in to fit the model perfectly, I was really happy with the results!
And here it is lounging in the water, came out good as new though!
Here's the scaled metal belt as well from the $3 splurge post! The 80s beaded top was gifted to me by an awesome family member who knows my love for unique vintage finds!

Also from the Hospice thrift store, are we sensing a trend yet? It's an 80s/90s Rampage dress and it was under $5! It makes me think of a marionette dress, so we went with an abandoned doll theme! It fit Emily perfectly!

This dress was bought on Ebay a few months ago for about $10, it said it was a 40s gown (very well might be as it had shoulder pads, which were mostly popular in the 40s and 80s). It looks fairly good in these shots, but it was really badly stained on arrival, and then this shoot happened. Sadly, the dress didn't really make it through it. The drop-waisted seam ripped as she was standing up and then practically fell apart at the seams when we tried to wash some of the dirt out of it. Oops. I pretty much commited vintage sacrilege, I try not to feel too badly about it though, since it was already sad when it came. It just had it's last big adventure! The headpiece is another DIY.

And here's some cute vintage gloves and a vintage pearl braided necklace! The gloves were my great grandmother's, and the necklace is from an estate sale for $1.

And from my most recent shoot, I shot with this awesome 60s/70s dress (unlabelled, I believe)! I thrifted itat Goodwill for less than $5 at the same time as the Miss Elliette dress above. I love the bohemian yet Renaissance look of this one. So magical!
I hope you enjoyed that little peek at some of my vintage collection, and how it's being used in my photoshoots!
