Before I show you the pictures from my trip, I need to tell you about something awesome I found with a friend last Wednesday:
|Pretend my head is there.|
What's up, 1950s wedding dress? You have beautiful lace flowers, flattering sleeves, and you're in fantastic condition! And you're only $75 at the charity shop! I should take you home and tell Hubsey we're renewing our vows already. Nevermind that I couldn't zip you all the way. I would've made it work. I should go back and buy you.
In all seriousness, it was the prettiest dress I've seen in a while. This picture I took myself in the dressing room is more true-to-color. It's slightly yellowed by age, but still GORGEOUS.
The lace detail repeats again on either side of the full skirt:
And it had a massive train that took up most of the dressing room:
I was shocked to find something this fantastic at a resale shop. If it were mine, I would've hunted down somebody who wanted to wear it (like meeeee!), or sold it to a collector.
Have you ever come across a treasure at a thrift store? Something you can't BELIEVE a person would just donate? Did you buy it? I really want to go back for the dress, but what would I (realistically) do with it?
