Well, if there’s any place considered to be my own personal heaven on earth – the Pgh Vintage Mixer is it. Literally, guys! Two entire floors of vintage vendors – maxed to the tippy top. Gorgeous fabrics, handcrafted and delicately cared for, mmm! If only there was some bank account I could charge to the clouds, sigh.
The Heinz History Center hosted this years #vintage mixer, and I’d like to thank Bess Dunlevy for all of her hard work coordinating such a wonderful event!
What did I buy? Meet Lagelle, a hot mama/Pittsburgh blogger/stylist who provides her customers with handmade vintage accessories. But, accessories aren’t her only forte – I purchased a BEAUTIFUL floral sundress from her. Pinks and purples with greenery surrounding the big petaled designs; and white lace lining the bottom of the skirt. This dress looks like something the real Charlie’s Angels woulda worn, pre-beach visit – sipping cocktails at the snazzy hotel bar. You know what would look amazing with this dress? A big sunhat… stay tuned, I’ll find one 😉
I met Velouria Vintage, too! Miss VV showed me a sunflower bracelet I couldn’t not buy & a darling white crop top from the 70s that is going to be perfect for this Spring/Summer weather! There were many other vintage dealers around the room, Royal Establishment, Kicky Feet Vintage, Vintage By Kristy, Highway Robbery Vintage and oh so many more! While I wished I could have spent all my time (and funds) on everyone’s beautiful pieces, the event had to end sometime; and so it did at 3pm.
A big thank you to Beth Navarro of Miss Elisabeta, this gal is DuffyDossier’s exclusive photographer and she snapped all of these amazing photos in this post! And Chancelor Humphrey of RadioChumps.com for joining us and #KeepingPittsburghDope… in the name of vintage fashion.
