60s WHITE SEQUIN JACKET
This is the first thing I found. I'm a sucker for all things sequin and have a growing collection. One thing I was missing was something in white sequins. When I saw this baby, I knew it was mine. It's from the 60s yet very clean and bright. Each sequin is still in place and I love the puffy shoulders.
I've been seeing a lot of boxy bags and clutches on the runway and street style for the past couple of years. I had been hesitant to buy one for two reasons. One, I hadn't really seen very many in stores and if I did, they were quite expensive. Two, they aren't very practical. I saw many at the show this year and I just couldn't stop thinking about them. I found this cute trunk one and fell in love. I didn't buy it right away though. I finished my loop around the show and since I couldn't get it out of my head, I decided it was meant to be. I can't wait to wear it out!

There were a lot more jewellery booths this year. One in particular had rows of vintage gold chains. I immediately knew I wanted one since I had been wanting to make use of my many brooches who don't see daylight enough. I'm planning on attaching a brooch to the middle to make it more unique. And yes, I realize I could find one of these at F21 for $10 but it will never match the quality of these vintage ones.
It's tradition that I buy a ring at the vintage show. I recently developed an allergy to metal on my hands so I can only wear silver or gold and the vintage show is by far the best place to find real silver rings that have bobbles or jewels on them. I found this one at a booth that specialized in turning broken vintage jewellery into new creations.
