Rainy Days and Radios


This is what I wore today while going grocery shopping, vintage hunting and making a trip the post office, to mail some very special dresses. It's been rainy and cold here, but I don't mind. I get to wear my rain boots after all! This post is also the debut of one of my favorite pieces of furniture ever! My 1940s radio/record player that I bought for only $20! The record player doesn't work so I still use my new vintage style one. The radio still lights up though! The rest of the day I plan on taking some pictures for my shop. Then later Jonny and I are going to going to eat pizza and watch Pearl Harbor. He's never seen it! If you haven't the 40s dresses are fabulous! Have a lovely weekend!

Jacket: 40s junior, I found it in a pile on the floor at an antique shop in Maine for $8
Sailor skirt: church shop for $1, you can't see the entire wonderfulness of it in these pictures
Boots: Macys, years and years ago

Thanks for the positive feedback! I am in love with that radio...and what a score!! I want to get one when I have a place of my own to call home. I really like that its a cabinet type rather than a regular large radio. Maybe you could get it fixed to make it work??

Oh I love your hat and jacket! (and completely understand about getting excited for reasons to wear rain boots:) I keep seeing an old radio in the window of a nearby antique shop. Its not nearly as large or fabulous, but always tempts me. I hope you have a wonderful night!

What an amazing outfit! I really adore the jacket's lines and details and the robin egg's blue of your skirt really brings out the tweed.

Gorgeous! And what a scare with the 40s record player + radio! Pearl Harbour sounds good for the dresses, and that's enough reason for me to watch a film! :D
