Please excuse the roots. I know they are outta control.
Aside from making me feel like I’m in a T.J. Maxx commercial, this dress is so light and airy and day-date perfect. I found it some years back at a garage sale and always go back and forth on whether I should keep it or not (after looking at these pictures, I just might!). It’s in great vintage condition with a little wear on the elastic, which happens over time even if the dress was not worn a lot. This vintage dress was obviously loved and taken care of because the fabric, although sheer, is not threadbare, meaning that it’s still got a long life ahead of it! The pleats are still perfect and there are no seam issues. In short, it’s pretty damn near perfect for a sheer vintage find!
Sheer items and delicate items are really hard to find in goof vintage condition because they tear easily. So when you’re out hunting, be on the watch! I always pick up sheer and delicate vintage items in good condition whether I want them or not because you never know when a happy home for it will show up. Also, I’m kinda a nut-so hoarder so, you know, there’s that.
Okay, also, I caved and added a Kate Spade bag to my collection. They were having a 75% off sale sale and…here it is! Except, it’s the fanciest purse I’ve ever owned so it pretty much just sits in a purse bag in the closet and never sees the light of day. I don’t think I’ve even put anything inside it yet. BUT, it’s also been winter, so I plan on using it a little more in spring. It’s really an amazing piece of craftsmanship. And it makes me feel pretty and fancy, so judge away! I don’t care.
One last quick word about my boots. I was on the hunt for a pair of gently used, basic Frye boots for a LONG time. Like…a long time. Then I found these cowgirl boots. They were totally not what I was hunting for, but I am a sucker for cowgirl boots and they’re Frye, so they’ll basically last forever. There are some amazing things you can find on eBay. (I’m new to eBay by the way, don’t judge me. I just always thought it was all cheap crap from China. Which it is, mostly.)
That’s all folks! Thanks for reading today
