  1. Show & Tell: Major shopping roundup

    Sunday, April 22, 2012

    Phewf, what a whirl-wind last few weeks. Between settling in to our new place, work (there's a provincial election on Monday) and re-discovering Edmonton I've been lax on the blogging front. The best way to keep up with me is via Twitter (@Laurie_Callsen is now all retro, as I created a separate work account) Instagram (I'm @retroreporter. I'm so glad they decided to FINALLY create an Android version) or my Pinterest account.

    We haven't decorated the house yet so I can't show you true house-tour photos, but here's a table we got for $10. I love it. Spotted in the background is our creative solution for the fireplace.

    In other news, I went shopping. I really go to H&M too often, but Edmonton is seriously lacking in affordable vintage wear and I can't really afford to shop high-end repro all the time.

    I bought this last week and wear it ALL THE TIME. I love it. Sadly I was between a Medium and a Large, so this one is slightly too big, but it's better than being too small. It might shrink up a bit in the wash.

    It's almost summer (+18 today!) and I can't wait to bust this out on weekends. Now I need a pair of high-waisted shorts.

    It was Miss Bee who found this beauty and got me to try it on. I can't believe that it's actually from H&M, considering its length. It makes me feel so beautiful.

    I bought these two skirts yesterday at H&M after hunting EVERYWHERE for some dark, high-waisted A-line skirts. I couldn't believe they were so hard to find, and I'm relieved to have tracked these two down.

    I leave you today with my new favourite cover song, Candy Shop by the Baseballs. Thanks to Cee for pointing me in the director of the Baseballs - I love them!
    (Keep in mind that this song is graphic and sexual, so it's best not to click play if those sort of things offend you)

      And thank you for introducing them to me! I hadn't heard of them but now I have to go on you tube and watch ALL of their videos.

      Good finds in H&M! I went in one of their shops the other day but I felt so old and didn't take the time to actually look at any of the clothes. I think I really should have done.


    2. Fantastic haul of vintage appropriate pieces. I really like the cheerful vibrancy of your new sweater (a dress clip worn in the back can be a great way to lasso extra fabric if you're finding it's still a tad too big after it's been washed and dried - I use them quite often myself, as I encounter the same between sizes issues with both modern and vintage pieces alike), and the rest of these items are terrific, too (you're making me miss living in a city with an H&M!).

      Thank you very much for your wonderfully kind comment today on my vintage outfit post, dear gal, I really appreciate it it.

      Wishing you a marvelous Monday & week ahead,
