Posted two more dresses today!

Sweet, Sweet Graduation Dress from Banana Republic. Click for Auction.

She comes first ’cause she’s my favorite.  The problem with clothing purchased for occasions is that they are often chosen a tier above one’s ‘regular style.’  Like, you’re not going to wear a wedding dress every day (but if you do, I think you’re awesome and I wanna know you).  Same here – for my HIGH SCHOOL graduation my Mom and I searched high and low for something that would be cool in the June heat, modest yet still young and ‘hip’ as the kids are calling it these days.  I wore this dress under my white graduation gown with strappy Etienne Aigner high heel sandals with little, white leather flower details.  Eventually the shoes gave in but I cut the flowers off and they are buried somewhere in my ‘stuff.’  I couldn’t bear to get rid of the dress, too.  But then one day, like a bolt of lightning, it hits you that you haven’t worn something in 10 years but you have, indeed, been moving it from apartment to apartment.  Time to let such a pretty thing grace some other woman’s body for a special occasion.  And repeat.

1970s Vintage Navy Blue Button Down Dress

Click on the image for the Etsy listing and more pictures.  This was one of many thrifting finds where I didn’t totally have the time to try on the garment before I impulsively bought it.  “I’m sure it will work!” and it did, like once.  I wish I was a lady who felt comfortable in belts.  Is that weird?  I look good with a belt, it just feels weird.  In any case, this lady needs a belt and someone who has strong enough cheekbones to counteract that super duper long 70s collar.  Dyno-mite!
