Ottawa Vintage Show Redux & GIVEAWAY

Ottawa Vintage Show Redux & GIVEAWAY

Anyone who's ever met my closet knows two things about me automatically: I wear black and white predominantly and I am absolutely obsessed with vintage. I adore vintage scarves to the point that I've gotten used to the look of disappointment when random strangers would ask where I got x, y, z scarf. Oops, #SorryNotSorry. Part of the allure of shopping vintage is the thrill of the hunt, and let me tell you something: if you feel the thrum of joy rushing through your veins as I do when perusing through endless racks of treasures from the decades, you'll want to check out the Ottawa Vintage Clothing Show on April 10, 2016 and enter our giveaway for 2 free tickets to the event!

Bolu and I first checked out the Ottawa Vintage Clothing Show last Fall, and in our blog post, we gushed over the glitz! The Sparkle! The Glamour! The Chanel. At the last event, I took home a beautiful navy satin jumpsuit from HepKat Vintage that fit me like a T. I rocked it at Her Campus Ottawa's annual Fashion Show and dare I say, I would not have looked out of place if I just so casually walked down the catwalk with the rest of the models? ;)

To all you ladies at the fashion show that wanted to know where I managed to find my one-of-a-kind jumpsuit, now you know.

To all you handbag-obsessed babes looking to ooh and ahh over some vintage Chanel or Wilardy -- (hey, no shame, it takes one to know one) --, the Handbag Gallery will be at the show for the first time, so you'll know where I'll be!
