Hat - Free from a naked lady clothing exchange party.
1930s Dress - Free, I got it from a store called Helping Hands (no longer open) that helped out people who are jobless (which I was a couple of years ago and I am yet again) they would let you take home 8 items a week. They had mostly modern day stuff however I found and took home some other vintage items (seamed stockings, gloves, hat, purse etc...)

1940's dance shoes - lulusvintage Ann is the owner of Lulu's vintage (her nick name is Lulu and is a friend of mine). She has a store not to far from where I live, I was in the neighborhood so I stopped in to say hi. Lulu took some pictures of me in her store today in my vintage outfit, I am sure I will end up over in her blog and when I do I will post the pics.
Also while I was there I picked up this super cute enamel butterfly pin, I already have one enamel pin that I got about a year ago at a different place. It is a moth and is a very pretty brownish wine color with yellowy gold highlights in the wings. Ever since I bought it I have been in love with enamel vintage jewelry and I told myself if I found another moth or butterfly I would buy it, so home it came with me. I bought that one from a gal who said it belonged to her grandma in the 1940s, which I assume this pin is from the 1940s too. If I remember correctly the gal I bought it from said her grandma was from Hungry and this is where the pin came from. I have a very large brooch/pin collection (over 50!) I inherited many from my grandma and my mom gave me several, then I started adding to the collection myself. I will be doing a post of my brooch collection soon (that way you all can see the enamel moth pin plus more).
