Over the last weekend, I went back to my Dad’s house to sell some of my clothes, go to a steak and oyster dinner, and hang out with my undergrad friends. What I wasn’t planning on was going through my old closet and finding the most fabulous vintage dress ever.
I have absolutely no recollection of buying or receiving this dress. All I know is that it is from the early 60’s, it is fabulous, and it fits like a glove. Plus, it’s turquoise, black, and gold: my favorite colors. Think “Mad Men.” The fit is like this dress, on Christina Hendricks. (Were I endowed like Ms. Hendricks, it would fit even better.) It’s awesome.
I called my mother and, from what we can tell, she bought the dress for me between 6 and 10 years ago. I never wore it, because I never had anywhere to wear it back home.
Now? I am going to wear this everywhere. I mean, come on, who doesn’t want to class up their grocery shopping with a little vintage glamour?
