Meet my new 1950s dress. In an amazing stroke of luck, I thrifted it last week for the princely sum of $2.
This never happens to me.
Okay so it has now, but you know what I mean, right? Op shops in my area are total rubbish so I rarely bother, but one day last week I got the call so off I went, and bingo!
As you might imagine if you'd seen the crusty little shop that it came from (you know, one of those ones that professes to be open every day but never has enough volunteers so is in fact almost never open), it's copped its fair share of love and wear in its time, now sporting a few wee holes and some huge faded patches.
But with a shelf bust, swooshy acetate fabric and an insane print as busy as our lives, what's not to love?
The thrift continues down the legs too. Lurex tights for 10 cents BNIP and totally new Nine West gold leather heels for $6, this must be my bargain heaven outfit, head to toe I'm done for less than $10.
And speaking of me in a green dress, how's this for cute-ski??
Done by my fab gal-pal Lisa of Atomic Martini Vintage, with 'Pinup-maker Deluxe'. Thanks chick, I love it!!
Linking up with Lakotas Ta-Dah Tuesday.
