In My Closet...Two Toned

Hi dolls! Happy Tuesday!  Time for another 'In My Closet' Post! Yay!!! Finally got some time to snap these shots and can't say enough GREAT things about this TWO-TONED vintage dress. 

Found this little number while thrift shopping and fell IN LOVE with it right away. It was hanging neatly in a nook and when I pulled it from the rack, it was in PERFECT condition and nicely pressed!  How nice of the owner to CLEAN the garment before giving it away.  Extra kudos to her!

See the loop on the right side of the dress? I  think it had a belt, but when I bought it there wasn't one so I added my own. TOTALLY wanted to wear this dress to work this morning, but I didn't since I am adding it to my online shop.  Not sure if you can tell, but this beauty has shoulder pads. Although I'm not a fan of them, I left them in since they weren't too bulky.

Whatcha think? Can you see yourself wearing this???

Ohhhhh, super cute. Sosososososo cute. I love it. I can't get over it. I wish I had something like this in my closet. If we were BFFs, I would totally steal this from you and never return it.
Because that's what friends do.

oh, lovely day! said...

what a lovely find! i'm not a huge fan of shoulder pads because i'm on the petite (aka short) side and they tend to weigh me down! they look great on you though!

It's beautiful! It looks so soft and feminine. I would like to think I could pull off those power shoulders but I think they would just look strange on me!

Jackie said...
