Happy Earth Day! I am a big recycler! I was over the moon excited when my neighborhood started a recycling program last year. Every week I pile plastic bottles, cardboard boxes and a wine bottle or two in my recycling bin. I love having the opportunity to do my part to help save our planet. My favorite form of recycling hands down is shopping vintage. I have found some awesome vintage shops in Houston like Queen of Heirs for jewelry and most recently Cheeky Vintage for all things fashion. I stopped by a few weeks ago for a fellow blogger buddies event and fell in love with a vintage locket that will be in Friday’s post. I got carried away socializing with other bloggers and did not purchase it. I couldn’t get it out of my head, so I went back about a week later in hopes it would still be there. That is the thing about vintage shops, all items are one of a kind. If you do not buy it this trip, it may not be there when you come back. Luckily for me, the locket was still there!! It must have been fate! I decided to take a closer look around the store for other fun vintage finds. I stumbled across this blue dress. I wasn’t 100% sure about it at first, mainly because I had no idea where I would wear it. But I loved it and kept circling back to it. I finally decided to try it on, and I was immediately sold! The dress is a shear layer over a blue slip. I immediately knew I could take just the shear layer and make another fabulous outfit! My favorite part of this dress, it is one of a kind. I do not have to worry about walking in to an event and seeing someone else in my dress! If you live in the Houston area and are a fan of vintage fashion, I highly recommend stopping into Cheeky Vintage! The ladies there are amazing!! They will let you just walk around and admire all the amazing vintage pieces which I love! I sometimes get lost in the clothes when I shop so I definitely appreciate the opportunity to get lost in a store especially a vintage shop full of such fabulous pieces! It is almost like a fashion museum! AND if you do go to the store, you MUST check out the sequins closet!! I seriously want everything in there!!!! Since this dress is vintage, I have no link to buy, but I did link the store’s website so you can peruse their vintage selection no matter where you live. Happy Earth Day!!!
