A Vintage Dress

A Vintage Dress!

Can you believe this lovely silk dress was thrifted for under $5? Isn't it gorgeous? It was just perfect to wear to an evening wedding that we attended a few weekends ago. I topped it off with two feather hair clips from the kiddie department of Michael's - thanks to a tip about these lovelies from a fellow blogger.

I should have taken a picture of the back of the dress. The fullness of the skirt is at the back where it is knife pleated at the center back. It's really quite a lovely effect. The style of the dress gives such a great hourglass figure. I'd guess that this dress is c. 1950-60s. It reminds me of the TV show 'Mad Men' which is set in the 60s.

  3. I'm so jealous of the blog roll on the right hand side of your blog! How did you do that?

  4. I added it through Layout>Add a Gadget, I think it was called My Blogs and lets you create a list of blogs that you like. Let me know if you have trouble figuring it out. ;)
