Who are you calling vintage?

I had the pleasure of taking a few hours this weekend to hang out at Chicago’s Randolph Street Market.

It was a perfect weekend to do it! Great weather, beautiful sunshine, and that soft Chicago breeze that comes every once in a while.  Booths lined the market with vintage treasures and trinkets.  A live band played in the background. The ambiance was perfect.

As my friend and I browsed the vendors we stumbled upon a couple of vintage clothing tents.  I’m a sucker for vintage clothing. My entire undergrad garb came from endless hours of thrift store shopping.

I was in heaven! Rows and rows of clothing were creatively laid out so that one could see the beauty in each piece.  How lucky I was to have found a dress that I immediately fell in love with!

I had to buy it. It’s going to go great with my red shoes.

I forgot how much fun it is to “dig” for the perfect look.

    • This was the first time I’ve ever attended. It was incredible. Time flew by meandering through the treasures. They also have an indoor market that we didn’t get a chance to go into…it’s quite large for an antique “show”.

      I do hope you get a chance to make it there when you visit. Thanks (about the dress). I thinks it’s a great find too.

  1. Ok – next time we visit, that’s what I want to do! You should get a little narrow red belt to wear with that awesome dress!

  2. I love markets! Unfortunately, my husband doesn’t share my passion for treasure hunting, but that’s what girlfriends are for? It was also a really nice dress, the essence of vintage chic..
