If you're wondering where Amelia is, her amazing sister Lindzee is in Georgia so she's taking the day off to bask in sister time. My family isn't in Nashville yet so, I decided to spend my last weekend before the holidays exploring antique stores + the Nashville Flea Market with my friend, Liz. I'm so excited that the daytime weather here in Nashville has been a little more tolerable. I've been walking around in cardigans + short sleeves this weekend and loving it.
I don't really wear brown... ever... but I so happened to pick up a couple of brown accessories lately that I've been dying to breakout: a brown pillbox hat + a vintage lucite purse. I normally wouldn't have thought to mix sherbert orange + brown but loved this Dolly Dress and wanted to make it look a little more autumnal instead of spring-y. It's also a '40s style dress so I thought the hat would be the perfect fit. I didn't even had to wear a petticoat, the dress was light and sort of puffed out on it's own with a little help from my hips.
The big Nashville Flea Market happens up once a month and I've been stopping in for a few years now. I've noticed the vendors I love coming and going (you really don't know who's going to be there any given month) and new ones popping up but I've also noticed a HUGE increase in the cost of things. Now-a-days I walk out with very little, but I absolutely love to go and hope I find a good deal or something fun and unique and to admire what's there. I fell in love with the table of cateye glasses above (look at those fold-able sunglasses) and almost couldn't resist buying the glitter punch bowl set!
I ended up walking out with the items below: a vintage lady head vase (what should I plant in her?!) and an awesome 1950's vase for $3 which was ironic because Collin came home from work with some lovely flowers. Small world! Also, Collin found a pretty awesome dental model for his curiosities cabinet when we were out antiquing on Tuesday, so I thought I'd include a photo. ; )
