Had to pull over and snap a few pics of this old theatre in Kansas, which was en route to my latest buying trip. I don’t document my travels as much as I should and need to work on that asap. I was gone for 4 days and returned last night,triumphant! Quality over quantity this round. I listed a few of the finds tonight:
1940s? Tropical Hawaiian print? Fishtail peplum? We’re so there. You can expect a last minute bidding war on this here.
Rose print 1950s party dress in shocking, bubblegum, and raspberry pink. Shiaparelli would have approved. here
Morton Bergman late 1950s impressionist style blue spring floral cocktail dress set. Wiggle skirting + matching bolero/cropped blouse. High quality tailored look + silk = totally luxe. here
There’s tons upon tons more which hopefully will all be up this week. Some 5 day auctions will launch on Tuesday for sure. This stunner will be for sale via Buy It Now too:
Pick of the litter. Just wait till you see the rest of it!

Tomorrow is the first offical day of fall! And in celebration, this uber amazing black leather wiggle dress has founds it’s way to Goldmine Trash. And into my heart.
Sadly, my dressform was a tad too large for it, therefore it doesn’t come close to doing it justice. On a gal the right size though!!! Heads will turn and hearts will break.
(work with me here)
Strapless, boned, nipped in waist, pencil skirt, and zip down front. Va-va-voom.
I love how this style is so versatile. With Bettie Page bangs, horned rimmed glasses, and springolators, a gal could be vintage Barbie gone bad. Or a 50s fetish model.
Or she can add bigger hair and heavier eye makeup for a punk inspired look…
OR some edgy accessories for a Gaga inspired look!
Of course, leather isn’t always tough girls, cigarettes, and rock & roll.
It can also be high fashion, sophistacted, and elegant. As Emma Stone proved at this years VMA’s.
All grown up! Miley Cyrus looks stunning in this black leather dress.
I was so thrilled when leather dresses paraded down the fall/winter 2010 runways. Everyone from Diane von Furstenburg to DSquared2 had these sexy things in their collections.
Of course, that’s the joy of wearing vintage. You get all the style and quality, at a fraction of the price. Ours is currently up for grabs for only $69.99!
How would you wear this look?

Oh yeah! A few items were added to Goldmine Trash today. At only $75.00 each, you can’t go wrong.
Cute as can be 1950s pinup wiggle dress, in a novelty bottle/flower print.
Super romantic early 1960s pink lace dress with fitted empire waistline, ruffle front and hemline. This looks AMAZING on!
And just for laughs, my psychedelic photoshop manipulations of the same pic. AKA how I entertain myself at 4am :P.
