Don't fuck with me, I'm in a BIKER GANG with John Travolta!!


(everything thrifted from head to toe)
vintage pink fringe plaid gingham dress, vintage B&W saddle shoes, vintage buttery leather backpack purse, DIY floral headwrap, vintage checkerboard cat-eye sunnies, vintage necklace and Forever 21/Buffalo Exchange/vintage rings
Mmmmmm pink. Just sooooo lovely in the summertime! Now this is one of my favorite dresses. I bought it for my mom as a Mother's Day gift when I was 10. She never wore it so I made it mine when I could fit it! Okay so every VINTAGE LOVER should own a pair of saddle shoes. It's like part of the uniform, lol! I think I was the only one who wore them in middle school. I used to think I was Grace Kelly back then. Love my cat-eye sunnies!! Don't you?? Another one of my faves. I think everything I own
 is my fave, NEVERMIND. My bike was my Mother's Day gift from my bf, Joel. I still can't believe he got it from Walmart and was like only 85 bucks!!! They had other colors too. Check it out @walmart.com if you want a cool beach cruiser on the cheap. God I love the 50s!! Every time I think I love he 60s more I look in my closet and find all my 50s gems! Got alot on my plate today. I have 2 online interviews and a picture luncheon to set up. Are there any Houston bloggers out there??? If so please email with me a link to your blog @vintagevirginblog@gmail.com.
Before I go I have to say HEEEEEEEY amd WELCOME to all my new followers! And thank you, thank you, thank you to everyone who voted for me yesterday. No free purse for me but it was nice to see myself on bloglovin again! They have been too good to me this month. I LOVE YOU ALLLLLL!
Peace, love and vintage,
Virgin

update:
Totally forgot to mention that all photos were taken by my son!! (I guess I get some mom points deducted for that!) Yes, he's got the photographer's gene!! He begged me for months so I let him have a go! They turned out AMAZING, don't ya think??

This is so freakin' cute! You look amazing, and that bike is perfect. I couldn't find any other color options on the website though. Do they only offer different colors at the actual store, or am I just missing something?

I can't believe that bike is from Walmart!

So stunning, like usual. I really like the retro feeling of those shots. Quite sad that your mother didn't like the dress, because it's just so lovely.

I think any variation of saddle shoes, I will love. 50s + 60s + 90s = 100% love.
