Rug Lane Markets and Vintage Stories

True to most of my vintage pieces, this dress has a story that makes me love it even more. I bought it at last month's Rug Lane Vintage and Secondhand Markets where I was also selling.


The woman selling it has a son who graduated from my school last year, and she had also popped over and bought a dress from me. Her booth had many amazing treasures she's collected along her way (and having worked in fashion). This dress is a vintage piece she picked up in Paris.


As the story goes, she was rushing to a fashion week show (maybe Hermes) and encountered this dress at a market along the street. Despite running late, she had to stop and buy it. Not only that, she changed into it right away and arrived at the show in this dress instead. I love it.


And, I couldn't wait to style it up for myself.


At the risk of sounding like a broken record, the weather has been warm. In fact, I saw on the news that we've experienced the hottest October day in 130 years. No bueno. This global warming shit seriously freaks me out. 


So, needless to say, the turban was not necessary. Heck, the long sleeves on this dress were not necessary, but I wanted to wear it anyhow. And with this turban from my girl Caitlin at Alex & Afton Vintedge (Instagram: @aavintedge). 


I was a good girl at last month's market and managed to sell some of my vintage while not coming home with more than I arrived there with. Here's hoping that November's market is equally successful.  For details about the upcoming Rug Lane Market on November 11th, visit their Facebook page here.
