Vintage Travelin’ Trunk Show

Last Friday I went to Goodwill's first ever Vintage Travelin’ Trunk Show at the Crystal City boutique, Gossip on 23rd. I perused some fabulous vintage pieces that were being silently auctioned off like these dresses:

There were also plenty of fashions to buy, both new and vintage, with everything under $100! This boutique is definitely a DC area gem and I highly recommend stopping buy! I almost bought a great skirt with a print that reminded me of Alfred Hitchcock's "The Birds."
Tons of sparkley accessories for super affordable prices made m head spin! Luckily I kept myself reigned in... mostly! I got a beautiful vintage blazer and a great metal colar and spent less than $75!
Lots of fellow Capital Area bloggers were also in attendance to check out the fashions and take pictures!
The owner of the boutiqu looked so chic in these highwaisted pants and killer giant cuff!
Some attendees in vintage fabulousness! The dress on the right was one of the pieces being auctioned off.
Another of the dresses being auctioned off - what a fabulous cocktail frock!
I actually bid on one of the dresses - a beautiful lavender grey crepe gown that I hope to wear to the USO Gala in two weeks! Fingers crossed!
