When I first saw this bag last year, I fell in love with it.  I have a thing for wicker bags and sweet summer fruit.  So this bag was a must have for me.  The shape of it allows me to stuff it with all my essentials for the day.

Anyway, I wear at least one vintage piece of clothing almost every day.  I don't mean to do it.  I just happen to have a lot of vintage pieces (which I love!  Vintage is the best).   This blouse is another gem that my mom gave to me that she used to wear when she was younger.

Have a great week :)

Just before the leaves started to fall and not long before the snow fell, I took a trip to Lake Tahoe.  This was of course, months before this last trip to Tahoe (from the previous posts).  It was kind of a kiss goodbye to a long and beautiful summer.

It was late September and unusually warm throughout this visit.  Knowing I would be doing a lot of walking, I prepared my outfit.  I wore my lace crop top from Forever 21 and  comfortable flats.  I also wore these amazing flared jeans that belonged to my mother.  She bought them in the 70s.  They're so unique!  I'm really glad she decided to keep them for so long.  And I was overjoyed when she handed them down to me.

When I was walking down a busy street, some guy yelled out "Hey, the 70s called...they want their jeans back!"  I couldn't help but laugh with him.  I was also a little impressed that he knew the era my jeans were from.

Do any of you own any vintage pieces?  Any from the 70s?
