I wish I'd taken photos of the actual store, but I was really worried about successfully navigating the booths and aisles without knocking something 'valuable' off. I'm telling you it was packed in there. Anyway, the building was huge! The variety of items for sale was incredibly eclectic too! It was a dark, cramped, sorta smelly paradise...
It was after successfully covering the first floor that I happened upon a treasure upstairs! I was at the end of one hallway and it was at the other. Ignoring all the booths between us and hot-footed it down for a closer inspection...
On the dress form was a long sleeve, cowl-neck creation in pink paisley with pops of blue and yellow. I initially just stood there gazing at it. I did unzip the back and look for a size, but was unlucky in that department. Thankfully though, the dress form was adjustable and the measurements seemed to be close to mine. With that, I stripped the dress form and threw the dress on over the top of my sweater and jeans!! My friend Diana wasn't too far away from me at this point so I motioned her over and had her act as my mirror. I love the vintage patterns and styles that are in right now and I wasn't sure I could pass this dress up!
I asked her, "Am I crazy to think this is cute?"
We both decided that it was totally adorable, fit me well and was worth spending a whopping $7.00 on!
When I got home Sunday afternoon, I tried the dress on and was so happy with my purchase!!
With that, I'll wrap up today's history lesson and me gushing about my 'old' dress!
