Antique . Shopping

Up until recently, whenever I go into any kind of antique store, I stumble across 18 million pieces of furniture that I know I just need to have. Well, now that I have a real.honest-to-goodness house of my own (and have an excuse for buying some of the juicy vintage furniture!), I can't find anything I like. No joke. I've been to every antique mall within a 60-mile radius and...nada. My only comforts are: (1) I own the house, so I have time to look for something I really like and that will fit with our style, and (2) I found another fashion-y goody for almost no money at all!!

In the spring I posted this look from The Sartorialist:



And then last week, at a local antique market, I found this crazy cool fur scarf for only $16!



Don't get me wrong -- I'm not wishing the summer away, but I am excited that come fall/winter, I can steal this look without spending a fortune!

oooh! fab-u-lous!

I find it's the same with shopping ...when I'm not "shopping" I find everything I want. ..then I go specifically to find something, can't find it anywhere.

Fab find!!!

You only find the good stuff when you're not looking for it.
