Fashions Fade, Style is Eternal

Pearl and I went to Laura's Vintage today because she's started carrying Pinup Girl Clothing! And I wanted to give her a little watercolor painting I did of Pearl wearing cat eye glasses.

Pearl pretty much stays in her bag when I go anywhere. It's easier when I'm in stores that allows dogs because she's better behaved. Otherwise, she'd talk to everyone about everything (I say talk because she barks at people until they pet her). She even got a whole Pupperoni from a little old lady on our walk to the store. Spoiled puppy!

She's ridiculous really.

 Let me just say that Laura's Vintage is my absolute favourite vintage shop here in Upstate New York. It's located on 19 Ridge St in Glens Falls, New York. And, I don't know what I would have done if I had not learned of her store. Since it's a bit of a jaunt, I'm not able to make it over there as often as I would like but when I do, I always find something! I'm pretty sure 90% of my wardrobe has been bought here.

I could literally spend all day in her shop if I could. Every time I go in, I find something else that I hadn't noticed was there when I was in last. And all the vintage packaging, deadstock, vintage tags, it's heaven.

And now that she carries Pinup Girl Clothing, she can accommodate so many more sizes! If she doesn't have your size in whatever style you want, she'll order it for you. How more perfect could this shop get?!
She even fixed my brooch by replacing a rhinestone!

About 60% of my outfit today is from her store.

  1. That dress is perfection! I am always nervous about going into vintage stores because I'm afraid I will actually buy something, ha ha. My clothing budget is pretty much nonexistent at the moment. But I do hope to make a pilgrimage there one day just to ooh and ahh over all the pretty things!

    1. If you do end up making a pilgrimage, you won't regret it. And the price range there is affordable! Some things are a bit on the expensive side just because of age and condition. But, I've gotten $25 dresses there before.

      And accessories are always nice and affordable. Lots of scarves, jewelry, vintage stockings, etc. that are super affordable.

      Also, if you head over there you should check out Glenwood Manor Antiques as well. It's just down the road and a huge house full of antiques from different vendors. It's nice to just go look even if you don't intend to buy anything. Such a fun place to window shop! (But they do have affordable things depending on what you're looking for.)
