The $25 Dress

I went out thrifting yesterday and along my travels, I decided to stop in at my secret vintage clothing shop to have a look see. Actually, it's not really a shop at all, more like a tiny clothing rack on the wall at a antique co-op! The dealer never has a huge supply of things, but for some reasons...call it my vintage karma...I always find the most AMAZING things on his clothing rack! His prices also happen to be extremely fair and his clothing and accessories are top notch! That's why I'm keeping this place a MaryDeluxe Secret! Shhhhhh I'm sure you can imagine how excited I was to pull this cute little number off the rack! There's no dressing room at this place and so I had to give a guess as to if it would fit...I guessed right and it actually fits like it was meant for me. I love when vintage magic like that happens...... oh thank you Vintage Gods !

  14. I'm with you on the gloves and hats- they make the outift. Otherwise it's just a dress (albeit a great dress)! And how do you get such great photos of yourself- everytime I try I end up with bad light or a goofy pose! ;)
