A Case of the Favorite Finds!

Who: Kristin Hazelton

What: Either of these two items, as I am torn!  The first is the vintage hot pink dress that I have on, the second is the faux fur leopard small suitcase.

Where: Dress purchased at a thrift store in Florida, suitcase purchased at an antiques show in Florida.

How Much: Dress, $5, Suitcase, $25

When I use It: I wear the dress on special occasions such as Christmas parties or dinner with my husband on Valentine’s Day. I use the suitcase to store cute things inside of my closet, but also use it on weekend trips!

Shopping Tips: Try something on, even if it’s only over your clothing, so you can see the fit.  My other tip is to take the the time to dig through boxes and sift through racks, as to not miss a great find.  I recently found an amazing vintage dress and romper in a cardboard box at a garage sale for $1!
