Lounging in a Lovely Vintage Find

Who: Ashley of Fancy Fine

What: Vintage robe

Where: A sidewalk sale in San Francisco

How Much: $2

When I Use It: “Pretty much every day! I’d been searching far and wide for a cute robe that I wouldn’t be embarrassed about schlumping around in. When one of my best friends (who also adores vintage) had a sidewalk sale, I zeroed in on this lovely red robe. It wasn’t until I brought it home that I realized it matched my bedding perfectly! Not to mention my cat, Donut, loves to snuggle me when I wear it. Big time score.”

Shopping Tips: “Only buy things you love. Sounds simple, but it’s easy to buy something so-so just because it’s cheap! I never go shopping for anything specific, I just look around at my favorite stores and try on whatever jumps out at me. This is a much more enjoyable way of shopping. Also, be open-minded about where you shop! Salvation Army, junk shops, flea markets, friend’s closets (with their permission!), strange chain stores… be patient and look through everything, because all of these places might be hiding that one treasure you will love forever!”

    That room is adorable! I love the mismatched floral bedding and the little blue gnome.
