Vintage Clothing Show

On Sunday my gal pal Brittany and I went to the Vintage Clothing Show at Toronto’s Metro Convention Centre.  We had an absolute ball browsing through vintage dresses, jewelry, accessories and art and each came away with some lovely pieces.  Here’s a taste of what we got up to at the show…

I loved this beautiful red and white polka dot swing coat! It totally screamed Dolly! I didn’t end up getting it, but it was fun to try.

Brittany has the perfect head for vintage hats! So I made her try a bunch on for photos. I love this one on her. How elegant!
