Vintage Finds: Fit for a Princess

So I spent yesterday watching the Epsom Derby....on TV.
I am however going to York Races at the end of July. (I absolutely love horses- they're so elegant and majestic!)
So in honour of the Epsom Derby, and the royalty watching, I thought I'd give you a sneak peek of my vintage accessories for my race day outfit.



I bought my dress new, but you'll have to wait till July to see that, and have been scouring vintage sites for the perfect accessories. 

The pearls and the brooch belonged to my Great Aunt.  They're part of her collection of jewellery that my mum and I like to call our family's 'Crown Jewels' (though worth perhaps a little less than their namesake!) 
The 60s clutch bag I got from It's Vintage Darling, it's made from mother of pearl in a mosaic style.  I'm not sure how much I'll be able to fit into it, so I'm hoping it doesn't rain!  My Herm├Ęs scarf I bought new, but it has horses all over it!

Do you know of any great vintage sites?  What's your favourite vintage piece?
