Dress: Vintage clothing stall in Shida night market, fascinator: Giant Dwarf, cardigan: Banana Republic, boots: Sogo department store, long pen necklace: 1928 vintage reproduction, shorter necklace: Eric at Booday (蘑菇)
Today I went to interview the owner of Taipei's largest secondhand and antique store (it bills itself as an indoor flea market), so I figured I'd wear some of my own vintage things to fit in. My dress is from a tiny vintage clothing stall in Shida night market (my favorite night market... it's in an area that caters to university students, so it has a lot of cool things). The stall sells mostly t-shirts, but they also have a few dresses imported from the US. I love how the print on this one looks like an ombre wash from far away.
My lovely necklace is by Eric, the same artist who made my lion necklace a few entries back. I wish I had a better picture of this piece. He made it with a couple different types of gold-tone chain and glass pebbles, in addition to the stork charm. One of the things that I love about Eric's work is that he combines vintage US celluloid charms with a modern Taiwanese aesthetic, so I feel like his necklaces represent two things I love pretty well!
I adore my Giant Dwarf fascinator! I have three others, in green, red and yellow tones.
