Of Science and Thrifting!

Who: Lizzy of ScientistChic

What: A vintage wicker handbag, made in Hong Kong.

In a little antique store in Rockport, Texas, on my 24th birthday, whilst was on a holiday. I love the idea that this little bag traveled so far across the world, I’d really love to know what its journey has been like!

How Much: A steal, at $18!

When I Use It:
“Whenever I’m going for a full-on period look, I’ll wear kitten heels, little gloves, and a vintage ’50s dress with a massive skirt! Or, as the perfect partner for a summery outfit, like a floaty skirt and simple blouse.”

Shopping Tips: “A lot of my best finds have come from the most uninspiring places – the darker and dingier the better, because if there is something good to be found, you are very likely to get to it first!”

HEY, BLOG READERS! We know you’re the cleverest vintage hunters around, which is why we want to hear the story of your Fave Find! E-mail favefinds@modcloth.com with a picture of you with your favorite vintage find (a rare record, 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!
