A Few Vintage Looks

Doin' the 60's in my Bettie Page 'Charm' Dress in Rust.  With my $4,000 diamonds brooch I bought in a costume jewellery lot at an antique auction for $20.  Beehive hairstyle courtesy of 'Bumpits'!
Styling my new Modcloth red wedges while eating my breakfast of raisin toast.  50's Mohair cardi from Bells Belle's Vintage.  Sailor pants from Boden.  Bakelite brooch and bangles all from eBay.
More on this skirt later......FABULOUS Atomic skirt I scored from Bells Belle's with a 40's handknitted cardi. Modelling my gorgeous sterling marcasite brooch The Sexiest Man On The Planet bought for our 10th Anniversary.
What Vintage finds have you scored lately?
