short n' sweet



When I saw these little delicate boleros on the BHLDN site I felt pretty excited to take photos of my own little boleros and show them off. Since I don't wear them much, or at all really, I am hoping to incorporate them into my spring/summer wardrobe, they are too pretty to live only in my closet! I feel like I have a lot of vintage that I "collect" rather than wear...do you too?

I collect some. Mainly jewelry (Even though I don't wear it all the time) But mainly becasue we don't have the space to store. But occasionally a pretty purse will make it's way here and won't be worn for year...just placed on a shelf to stair at (Enid Collins mainly)

ooh very pretty indeed...I too have collection stuff rather than 'wearing' pieces, especially those little crochet or lace numbers, I get so nervous working in them, especially when I hear a little ripping sound...that first one is a stunner!

ooh, boleros! Cute! I collect capelets. Should probably work harder to wear them more often.

Mmmm, I love those and would totally wear them all! I do collect things that I don't wear, but it's not intentional--I only collect things that I do intend to wear.

Ohhhh, I love these! I hardly ever wear a top that's not cropped.

This reminded me that I have a black and yellow silk thing, I suspect it went with a dress or something, that I hid in a box at my favorite vintage store and then went back to buy. I've been waiting for warm weather to wear it, but forgot about it until this post!

And it's snowing again anyway, so, polka dots must wait.

I am like Karen. I only collect clothing I intend to wear. My vintage collection is about 5 dresses and 10 cardigans and my weakness is cole of cali bathing suits..which I love and I'm not sure if I can call two a collection. But I do collect lamps, jantzen ads, and glassware.

Those are so pretty! I have one a similar shape to the peach one and I definitely don't wear it often enough.
