1950s black velvet taffeta dress: vintage saks fifth ave thrifted at oonas
here is the dress that stole my heart. its funny because i saw it hanging perfectly on the rack but i passed it by because the price tag was a little more than i care to spend on any one dress. i was being good and not even looking at clothes for myself but then the girl working brought it over to me and casually suggested that i try it on. of course it fit me exactly right and as soon as i zipped it up i was sold. i still haven't gotten a chance to really wear it, outside of my apartment i mean, but i'm planning on wearing it next week on our vacation! i'm catching the bus to new york tonight and then bright and early tomorow morning we're off to long island. i won't have my computer, and even my cell phone doesn't get reception where we'll be, but i'm so excited to be isolated in a cabin with my boyfriend for five days. caroline will be here keeping up with the store and shipping, but there won't be any updates until i get back. happy valentine's day friends, see you in a week!
