Two Dresses

I went thrift shopping and bought two cute dresses that were $28 each. It was a big spending day for me, since I can’t remember the last time I spent that much for an article of clothing. But…I just couldn’t resist.

The first dress is this awesome 1950s dress that’s in pretty good condition. I love everything about it. I like the little details—like the little white collar, the small gold buttons, the triangular bit of fabric under the buttons, and the gathering in the skirt. It’s a fairly long dress, stopping around mid-shin. And the teal color is just so pretty. I really appreciate the craftsmanship of this dress.

The second dress seems newer; I’m not sure when it was made, but it was made in the U.S.A, so my guess is it’s a couple decades old. I really liked the pattern on this dress—kind of southwestern. There was a time I was against wearing patterns, but I’ve gravitated towards them in more recent years. The elastic waistband is nice because it makes the dress comfortable (and forgiving). I also love that this dress has pockets—I looooove pockets.

The one small downside is I think this dress is probably a little too big for me. I think the shoulders are maybe about half an each to wide, and maybe the waist is a little low on me. It’s not a huge deal (and I doubt anyone will really notice).
