Vintage Charm with a Bit of Glitz

Teal Dress with Vintage Beaded Clutch {living outside the stacks}

About six months ago I was walking around Target when I spotted this dress on the sales rack. I picked it up and immediately put it back down. While I liked the color, the style just didn’t appeal to me. I’m more of a flowy dress kinda girl. This is more, I don’t know, what style/era I’d give it. The drop waist is kinda 1920s flapper, but the zipper detail on the shoulders is definitely 80s rocker. But there was something about the dress that made me go back to the clearance rack…

Seriously, how beautiful is this beaded clutch? It’s just a little somethin’ somethin’ I picked up at Annie Laurie’s, one of my favorite vintage stores in Missouri. I’ve written about my love for the store many times before, you can read it all here. In fact, when I’m not using this clutch, it sits on my mantle as a piece of art. It’s just way too pretty to tuck away in a closet somewhere.

I saw these shoes in the store and knew they had to come home with me. Even though they’re about half a size too big. I put a pair of running inserts {yes!} in them and tissue in the toes, but it still didn’t help. I think I’m gonna have to let them go. I nearly broke my neck trying to walk into church and the click clack as they slip off my heel is beyond annoying. But standing still? FIERCE!! With two snaps.

Have you ever bought a pair of shoes that were too big {or too small} just because you had to have them? Please tell me I’m not the only one.
