You wouldn't think a spot this bleak looking would yield such amazing vintage finds-but most of what is pictured below was just a few seconds away from where this photograph was taken.
My mom and I arrived in Tulsa at about 11 and got home an hour ago from hitting all of our favorite stores in Tulsa. Tulsa has the greatest and most affordable vintage shopping in the country, I'd suspect.
Looks like my mom and I had a bit of a magpie/bauer bird eye when we went out shopping today-everything glitzy and sparkly was immediately off the rack and onto our backs. Obviousely the shoes weren't purchased here-both my mom and I packed a few pairs for the weekend.

This beautiful lace dress with rows of sequins running in between the ruffles-it is easily my favorie vintage find ever-PERIOD. You cannot believe how beautiful it is in real life-tonight I want to wear it out with my Ann Demeulemeester boots.
I got it at my favorite Tulsa treasure trove-Silver Screen Vintage. My mom and I spent forever combing the racks of the store and trying every thing on.

Can you believe this skirt? I can't! This skirt is like an instrument, it is so large and heavy it couldn't even fit into a bag. It's difficult to tell from this blurry photo I took in the changing room, but it has bands of velvet, satin, tulle type lace, and is lined in another layer of very heavy satin. Obviously it was custom made for someone, but it feels like a custom piece of couture.

Okay, with all of these fun new clothes, picking a fabulous outfit for dinner is going to be really hard, so I better get started.
