For this weeks Wednesday wishes I have picked a few delightful pieces from a Etsy shop called DearGolden. They have a wide choice of stock, and their pieces are just glorious so I will share my favourites!

I cant wait to use this vintage 1960's bag this autumn!

My Partner bought me this bag last year for my birthday when we visited Rye, East sussex, England. There are a great many thrift stores there, full of antique and vintage goodies, a great place to visit if you ever head that way! This bag had been put away over summer…but with autumn creeping closer i have got it out and i cant wait to use it again! I dont own many bags, but this one of my best ones.  It dates from the 1960’s and i just adore it!

I just love these and the price of £22.49 is a bargain! Great for a last-minute vintage nautical look for the tag end of summer,  or save as a treat for next year, because lets face it nautical is always in fashion! 😀 Or if like me you are from the uk, show your support to team GB in these beauties 🙂

This weeks Wednesday wish dress is a real fairy tale vintage dream. Think totally girly, indulgent, cute, and pink! Normally I shy away from such girlyness, but this one is cute as a cupcake and too good to not share. The price tag of £350 although totally out of most people budgets ( Hence the Wednesday Wishes part) but for a dress so beautiful £350 could be considered money well spent. If you were so inclined this would make a great wedding dress for a quirky 50’s vintage girl! I just adore it!
