Vintage brands

Blue pinstripe trousers Pilar Rossi vintage, similar on sale here - Cream silk button down shirt Kenneth Cole, similar here
Wendell black akle strap flats Vince Camuto, similar here
Laurel navy blue vintage leather belt, another vintage belt from Laurel here 
Doctor's hand bag Baurisar, similar one here
I always enjoy the possibility of learning. While touring consignment shops, one of my favourite things to do when I find a garment I like of a new-to-me-brand is to read up on it.
For example the navy blue belt I am wearing today, I liked the buckle and the fact that the pristine leather was reversible, so I picked it up and when I read the name "Laurel" I immediately googled it, only to find out that Laurel is related to the Escada brand, one of my favourites.
The same goes for the trousers, these blue pinstripe wool striped pants are Italian made by the Pilar Rossi brand which I had never heard of either.
Interestingly both are still in business today. 
Have you discovered any new to you vintage brands lately ?

I think it's great you learn more about your clothes. I don't have much luck finding vintage pieces in opshops, the ones I do have didn't have tags or the tags were cut out, and now I have so little time I can only buy things I think will fit so I usually stick with brands I know when thrifting, as it's hard enough getting time to browse, never mind time to try on, ha! Too tricky while the boys are so little.

It's been such a long time since I've managed to make it out to any of my local vintage and second hand clothing shops so I've made absolutely zero good discoveries lately. Hopefully that changes soon because I really miss browsing in those shops! And these pin stripe pants you found are just wonderful.

It is fun!! There are so many brands that I've never heard of, and couldn't afford except secondhand!!
And that purse is so wonderful Lorena!!

Yes! I always google my 'new to me' finds. Lise

I always look up brands of quality when I buy pieces - it's taught me so much about manufacturing (there used to be SO MANY brands made in Canada and the US compared to now!) and these different designers. I ADORE these pants on you - they look great (you look tiny in them).

Lorena, this is the best look lately - great pants (especially pants), blouse, balerinas and belt too (ok, bag is no my style :)

Previous outfit is also good, but this is better.
