My Material Crushes

     Lately, I have had a small obsession with finding vintage or second hand treasures. Ok, so it's not that small. But for me, it is a scavenger hunt; A fun way to look for old pieces to match up with modern buys. I haven't had time to go out and scavenger hunt lately, but I did spot some cute online finds that I am crushing on....and perhaps, buying in the near future. I am in a hurry for spring. That is probably why most of these items are not winter-esque. Here are a few items, both vintage & new, that I'm crushing on:

Boheme Away From Home Dress (Vintage)
It's well known that I'm a sucker for the Boho look.  This maxi dress is chic and looks comfortable. Being a shade of turquoise (my favorite color to wear) makes it even better. $77.99 at one of my favorite online go-to's, Modcloth

Retro 70's Bracelet (Vintage)
This 1970's Coral Rose bracelet is so perfect! I would maybe even wear it with the Boheme dress above. And for $20.00, it's a steal! Find it HERE. The RustyZipper is another one of my favorite online places. 

It's A Beautiful Day Dress (Vintage)

Why, yes is would be a beautiful day if I was wearing this eyelet lace dress. Can you tell I want some Maxi Dresses??? Buy it HERE, at ModCloth. $72.99

Crystal Zodiac Sandals (New)

If I had $595 laying around to blow, I would buy these. I'm crushing on these super cute Crystal Zodiac Sandals in Leo from Intermix. How fun! See them HERE.

1970's Caftan Style Dress (Vintage)
Not everyone is a fan of Kaftans but I think they are unique. This pull-over flutter cut Hippie Kaftan dress catches my eye. Throw it on over a bathing suit for pool days or lounge in it on a lazy day. Buy HERE at RustyZipper for $43.20.

Cobalt Luichiny Suede Wedges (New)

In love with these Luichiny Cobalt blue suede Wedges. Find them HERE at for $80.

Xhiliration Tank (New)

Great top for layering in spring or summer. I'm a fan of the bold colors. Only $17.99 at Target

70's Dotsi Dress (Vintage)
I can envision myself wearing this with some oversized shades and a sunhat drinking a margarita. Loving the chevron-style print. Buy it at CoronetWeedsVintage for $40.00

Fair Isle Satchel (New)
I'm digging the pattern on this Forever 21 Satchel. I am the type of person that doesn't like to spend boat loads of money of handbags because I change them like the weather changes in New England. For $27.80 HERE, I'm sold.

Little Flower Girl Summer Dress (Vintage)
Scarlett needs a cute little vintage summer dress to don. I am smitten over this little flower dress in size 2T. Only $15.00 HERE at Pass The Parcel Vintage.

Tori's Favorite hokise Initial Necklace (Vintage)
This is a Tori Spelling's favorite necklace and I can see why. It's simple, vintage and charming. It is on my wish list. You can buy an original HERE at InvenTORI for $375. Or you can purchase a similar one HERE at Max & Chloe for $45.00.

Green Flower Vintage Drinking Glasses
Just like my clothing, I like an eclectic variety of kitchen and dinner ware, as well. So I have started collecting. These green glasses would be a great addition! $16.50 HERE at CinfulOldies.

Low-Rise Boyfriend Shorts (New)
Yes, I'm ready for spring so I can wear some cute shorts like these from Old Navy. $24.94!!

Last, but not least, is this Missoni Printed Silk Mini.  I would already have purchased this for $320 if I wasn't so money conscious. I guess that is what is to be expected from a former banker. Maybe a nice birthday present from my boyfriend though....(hint hint) 


  1. I, too, have been longing for spring! I can't wait to get a couple new summer dresses. With molly being born in June,I just looked like a whale the whole season but this summer I'm excited to get a few things! Those shorts from Old Navy are soo me. I might have to get them too!

  2. Oh, my goodness my boho friend, these are amazing. That first dress is so yummy! You almost want to cut it off a bit and throw on some Hunters boots. I grabbed your button!
