Gayle’s Vintage
My friend, Colette, has been trying to drag me to Gayle’s Vintage for months. I finally made it over to her Milford shop and fell in love – both with the merchandise and Gayle! I think she’s a dead ringer for Maude (of Harold and Maude).

13. Lace jacket, $15
14. Ring, $6
15. Tassel earrings, $4

Brooklyn Flea

16. Fort bracelets, $40. (The two bracelets closest to my hand.)

The brass bracelets, dripping with deadstock chains, pushed me over my $100 monthly budget, but were so worth it. I'm willing to spend more to support local artists. I love how they pair with my other bangles and add texture to the mix.

June total: $130.73

Total spending for the year: $829.41

I think you had a smashing month. Love that lace jacket and the luau dress, and I think my personal favorite is the feathered belt.

I passed up that orange studded bracelet at Penny's and now after seeing it on you, I could just smack myself in the forehead. I actually had the thing on my arm and talked myself out of it thinking it just didn't look good with my pale skin tone. You've got a good eye for color that flatters your skin tones.

Hi, I just discovered your blog and love the idea of setting a monthly shopping budget and sharing all the things you scored for so little! I might have to adopt this for my blog. :)
