Goodwill Intentions From Seattle!

Who: Katrina of The Demure Muse

What: Vintage 1950’s scarlet red sailor skirt

Goodwill in Seattle, Washington

How Much:

When I Use It:
“If I wake up feeling a little under the weather, I like to throw on this skirt to add color and cheeriness to my outfit. Not only is it absolutely adorable with the sailor button detail, but it’s also extremely practical (there are pockets!). Did I mention that the high-waisted fit and built-in buckle are extremely figure flattering? What more could a girl ask for?”

Shopping Tips: “Whenever shopping vintage, it’s good to keep an open mind. It’s great to envision the ‘perfect piece’ but it may not be realistic to find an item that fits your description to a ‘T.’ By staying open to trying on similar pieces in different prints, colors, or cuts, you never know what kinds of treasures you’ll end up uncovering!”

HEY, BLOG READERS! We know you’re the cleverest vintage hunters around, which is why we want to hear the story behind your Fave Find! E-mail us at with a picture of you with your favorite vintage find (a rare record, a hand-carved cabinet, a perfect pair of boots, or any other treasure), and answer the following: Who, What, Where, How Much, When I Use It, and Shopping Tips!
