Sunday Vintage: The Wild West!

Sometimes vintage is like, mega expensive.  I've seen some amazing novelty prints and in great condition skirts pop up on Etsy and eBay for like, $200 dollars.  This makes me incredibly sad because that's way out of my budget!  But...once in a while you get super lucky, and this skirt is a story of luck!

I saw this print pop up on my eBay feed last fall at a bid starting at something ridiculous like $16 or something in that neighborhood.  A lot of vintage pieces have starting bids super low because sellers know this will likely entice several people to start bidding on that item over the medium priced pieces, and what often ensues is a bidding war that leads the price to go up way past $100.  Being a sucker for novelty prints/scenery prints AND living in Colorado, I became pretty interested in this piece of vintage clothing!  And very lucky for me, this "bidding war" ended up with me snagging this piece at less than $30!!  I almost wondered if I missed something in the details, like it was a fixer upper or something, but upon having it delivered I fell more in love with it because it was not only in perfect condition but the print was even better in person.  The colors are surprisingly vibrant for such a neutral based color scheme, the details are insane, and it's in super good condition!  So far I've only played around with styling it with burgundy, gold, and tan based colors but one of these days I'll find a way out of my comfort zone and style this differently!
