My Love Affair With Vintage Dresses...

Hey Dolls...

I've been shopping my closet all of this month and loving it!! I've had some gems just waiting to be worn, and this dress is one of them. I love lady like vintage dresses. They skim the curves of your body without being to revealing or tight. Dresses are the most universally flattering item of clothing a woman can wear in my opinion. This dress has beautiful colors and floral detail. It's perfect for pairing with tights and colorful modern heals to add a bit of edge and will transition from winter to spring with ease.  Another great purchase from the Salvation Army for $3.60.

Hope you are having a wonderful Tuesday so far ;)

    1. Oh that is a great challenge, and you can do it, I'm telling you .. You are gonna be hooked and addicted to thrifting when you find some amazing items that are one of a kind! I never thought I'd be this crazy over someone's used clothing but I get so excited when I find something that I know no one else will have! You have to do a post about your first experience!! Can't wait to see what you find :)
