" Everything I buy is vintage and smells funny. Maybe that's why I don't have a boyfriend" - Lucy Liu
I love vintage and I love sequins (as displayed here, here and here) so put the 2 together and I am one happy girl! My friend Kelly and I recently spent a Sunday afternoon perusing vintage and consignment shops in Ottawa. We laughed, I spent too much money but most of all we explored hidden treasures.
We visited Aunt Olive's and Young Janes Vintage Shops- both fabulous and eclectic. At Young Janes I bought a faux fur vest which I am saving for a special occasion and at Aunt Olive's I bought the sequin beret I am wearing above and the owl necklace worn here. If you are in the area, set aside time to visit these great shops and if you get the shopper's hunger- Aunt Olive's is part cafe and part vintage shopping with delicious Vegan soups and Vegetarian sandwiches! Next on my Ottawa vintage checklist- Ragtimes. P.S. my teddy bear wanted to wear the vintage sequin as well ;)
What's your favourite vintage shop in your city?
