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.

Oster is obsessed with vehicles…trucks, cars, vans…so we thought taking him to a car show would be something he would absolutely love.

We went this weekend. Shiny cars lined the streets.  Owners were talking with onlookers and sharing every ounce of knowledge they had about their cars.  It was the perfect scene to walk into.

The minute we “pulled up” to the show, Oster looked in every direction but where the cars were.  He was mesmerized by all of the people. He waved to them, pointed at random dogs, and watched the street traffic. I don’t think he paid attention to one muscle car!

Not to worry. Mom and Dad had a fantastic time! We’re looking forward to taking him to the next show; however, I’ll have to spruce up his car a bit before we go.
