Vintage Florals

{Vintage dress; Heels: Sergio Rossi}

I recently rediscovered the amazingness of Ebay by signing up for the Zuburbia weekly finds newsletter (shh, don't tell anyone else).   This has led to hours of scouring listings of vintage dresses.  This gorgeous silk Eloise Curtis creation happens to be one of the items I scored.  Isn't it absolutely stunning?  

Buying vintage clothing online can be a scary proposition, so pay close attention to the measurements provided in the listing and compare them to something comparable in your own closet.  I always keep a max bid in mind because it's easy to get caught in a bidding war over those one of a kind pieces.  Remember to calculate shipping as part of your maximum price and don't bid if you have any hesitation.  For me, a successful online vintage purchase is like opening a present - sometimes you're not exactly sure what you're going to get but it's a thrill finding out anyway.

I'm off to Coachella tomorrow for one of my favorite events in the world.  I'll have some recaps for you next week.  I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and I may even see some of you in the desert!
