lucky day

I fell in love with this dress from Bleubird Vintage some time ago (even blogged about it here), but held off on purchasing it because the price was just a bit steep for my liking. Once it sold, though, I started wishing I had just clicked the buy now when I'd had the chance.

the one that got away.  sniff.

Imagine the delight I felt when I came across this near identical beauty at The Salvo here in Virginia just the other day.  Mine gets bonus points for costing less than three dollars.  Hip hip!

delightful dream dress in the flesh. uh...fabric.

What an amazing story! I have been known to get heat waves whilst thrifting from sheer excitement, and this would have been a definite wave!
