My Vintage July

It’s that time! Time for a little vintage monthly review of a sunny and stellar July. It was an amazing month that consisted of a pin-up photoshoot, old car shows, concerts, some lucky thrifting and a romantic weekend away from it all down on the Oregon Coast. Here are a few of my favorite vintage moments from July:


Here are the picture descriptions (row by row, left to right):

Top Row
1. Spending a lovely Saturday afternoon at a car show with a bubble gum pink beauty.
2. A vintage sewing box that totally cracked me up while I was out thrifting. Darn it!
3. Another teaser of my hot rod pin up photoshoot that I did with Varga Photography.
4. A new gorgeous, beaded purse available now at CoriLu Vintage.

Second Row
1. Quite the large, woven find from a rummage sale fundraiser and also one of my first posts on the new CoriLuVintage Instagram account. Follow me! πŸ™‚
2. A stunning vintage glassware set that my wonderful guy and I picked up while on vacation on the Oregon Coast.
3. Just a little detail on a new 1940’s dress that I also picked up on vacation at the Astoria Vintage Hardware.
