Heather Waity's Vintage Clothing from Rome
You finally went on summer vacation — and all you got was a bad case of sunburn and a huge hole in your wallet.
But leave it to Heather Waity from Vintage Connection to bring back the souvenirs. The eagle-eyed globetrotter just returned from Rome with a heap of vintage scores.
She got colorful cotton dresses with embroidered details and bright prints from the ’50s to the ’80s from Piazza Navona or San Giovanni (large flea markets brimming with secondhand clothing). Everything is in natural fibers (mostly cotton and linen), including a slew of little shirts with interesting button details and necklines. A few are cut short, so you can rock them with high-waisted jeans or just your own belly.
Also, be sure to check out the accessories; necklaces with intricate detail made the flight back as well.
They’re pretty as a postcard.
