Eclectic Threads Vintage Shopping Spree

As many of you know, I am in D.C. to visit my parents. I only here for five days and there is a lot to fit in. You know, people to see and places to go. One of the places that I had to hit was Eclectic Threads, which is my favorite vintage store in the whole wide world. I deliberately packed light so I could load up on some vintage goods and load up I did.

I am on bit of a hat kick lately so I needed to expand my hat collection. I got this sweetly awesome yellow fur hat from the 60’s. The hat is totally ridiculous but looks awesome on. So awesome that a school teacher who was shopping at the same time said I had to get that hat. I also got a leopard print bucket hat, very Edie. I didn’t stop there though, I also got a white turban and a green turban head wrap. I can’t wait to wear all of the fab new hats. I may never have to do my hair again 😉

Next was the fur, cause you know I am on a fur kick. I bought a black fox tail scarf and a wonderful lamb’s fur vest. I have been looking for the perfect fur vest for a while and I finally found it.

The last little gem that I found was a leather jacket. I have been on the hunt for a leather jacket forever. I got this one from the 70’s for a mere $40. It looks very Serena from Gossip Girl doesn’t it.

Check out some of my other finds from Eclectic threads here and here. Oh and here.

  1. Great picks! Vintage shopping is always a lot of fun – sort of like treasure hunting. You never quite know the gems you’ll find when you begin the hunt!
