Time Flies!

 This week has been a little strange. How? Finding vintage is of course always random. But never this random. My last post was a lovely 1940s 2pc Lounge Set by the brand Textron. Since finding that set a few months ago, I have since more and more of that label. Two blouses, a dress and Mike actually found a PJ set yesterday!! It's silly, but I can't help but laugh at the name, Textron. It's sounds like a vintage robot, or what my transformer name would be. Maybe this should be my Dethrose Vintage specialty!?

So it was a bit strange when one of my favorite customers, Christy, brought this dress in to me. I was immediately taken a back by the beauty of this dress. But then I noticed it to be a Textron as well! This now made the 5th Textron piece I had come across in only 2 months! Insanity!!! 

The print kills me, Time Flies!!

What day is it??

Seriously, what day is it? The week/weekend flew by. It seems like after we announced our shop's big move, the week disappeared. We've been trucking along at the new spot, ripping down walls, ripping out ceilings, ya know, a basic gut. I've been taking plenty of pictures of the progress, but this is not that blog post. We're having a bittersweet week here at Market Supply Co. It's the final week we'll be open at this location, yep, door locked up this Sunday! Again, this isn't that blog post. But I promise all of the above will be coming shortly. I guess I'm not ready for all that just yet. Instead I'm gonna keep it light with an outfit post. 

Just another cool summer day here [insert annoyed tone here]. I want a real Summer, but dang this Polar Vortex ruining a warm sunny Chicago for us! This is the first Summer I haven't gone swimming at least 4-5 times a week. And frankly, I am not happy about it!! Trying to figure out Chicago weather is like trying to figure out how people on reality tv shows exist, it's a HUGE waste of time. 

The 64ยบ day did give me an excuse to wear my new to me 1940s Pant set early. I want this is every color, print, I just want it!!! It's comfy and feels like I'm wearing pjs, only people think I spent a lot of time getting ready. Ha! 1940s lounge set fools ya again! It's easy and I wanna wake up in it every day...I won't...but I really want to. 
I changed it up a bit. The top is actually a boxy fit with double buttons but on my frame, it just wasn't as flattering. So I just tied it up and Voila! 
 The print and colors are just so vibrant and gorgeous! I'm telling ya, this set is gonna be hard to beat!
