so the other day, as aaron and i were walking to the beer engine for our date (which was super-fantastic, in case you're wondering), there was a little window display that caught my eye.
i have this little love for vintage things. i don't know why. maybe it's because there's a story behind them. maybe it's because it was part of a time period in which i would never be able to experience first-hand. maybe it's me subconsciously longing for simpler times? hmmm...i really don't know.
anyway, the little window display that caught my eye showcased a stunning vintage blue dress.
i think to myself: oooooh! that's new. is that a vintage store??
my husband noticed my hesitation to continue on to our final destination.
yes, we can stop by there and take a look. [he read my mind! how did he do that?]
we take a short detour. as we approach: shop closed. drats!
the lights inside were on, so i peeked in to see if i could figure out what the place was all about. not much inside except for a gal busy on her sewing machine.
she was so sweet and invited us in for a bit. as it turns out, she runs a little business specializing in custom-made vintage reproduction dresses called porshes place. all the photos you see in this post are some of my personal favorites from her etsy shop.
aren't they fantastic? anyway, i thought i'd share one of my newest 216 finds. be sure to keep her in mind the next time you're looking for that perfect vintage dress!
