the thrifting fairy
A few weeks ago my mom and I decided to take a little day trip to Nashville. We truly had no idea what we were in for. After a quick stop at the super hip Barista Parlor coffee shop, we proceeded to thrift our way through East Nashville, discovering new stores as we went. Though every vintage store we visited was absolutely adorable, a little place called Old Made Good (OMG) undoubtedly stole the show. Located behind a semi-sketchy beauty store, it sits in an unexpectedly charming space that would go unnoticed to the untrained eye. Upon walking inside, the store greets you with gold glittered floors and treasures galore. It is filled with beautiful furniture and quirky pieces of art, displayed in the most perfect way possible. The first time I went I only bought a shirt, as I was too overwhelmed and excited to trust myself on deciding to buy anything else. With that said, I loved East Nashville so much that I went back three days later with my best friend Kaely to visit my new favorite stores again. Obviously, OMG was the first stop on my list.
I had seen these sunglasses on my initial visit to the shop, but did not buy them for some unimaginable reason. Obviously I couldn't resist the second time around. The fact that they were still there can only be described as fate, and who am I to argue with a powerful force such as that?
The only word that lives up to the beauty of these sunglasses is CHIC. They are oversized, cat eye, tortoiseshell, black, matte and shiny all at the same time, not to mention VINTAGE HOUSE OF HARLOW 1960, which kind of says everything that really needs to be said. Even the box is perfect. They are beautiful and awesome, and I will go as far as to say that they are the best vintage purchase I have ever made in my 20 years of life. The thrifting fairy must have been with me that day, and I really hope she sticks around for a while.
