I wore this dress a record 3! times. I may have had a crush on it, but I had to let it go. Those huge bursts of pink flowers against the black were so happy making! The fit was fantastic & this is the exact length I prefer my maxis to be. It's lined & the shirring at the neckline & waist elevated this dress to perfection for me. Extremely well made gorgeous dress! I wore it to work, garage sales, errands, & to Concerts on the Square with Kate. This is a dress that could go anywhere. 
The first time I wore this dress, it was to work & then to the Overture Center for their sneak peek at the season ahead & the chance to get single tickets 2 days earlier than anyone else. I could have sat on stage in the stunning Capitol Theatre & had free drinks & snacks...however, I knew I wouldn't stick around I sat off to the side in the shadows. I was able to score the last 2 front row tickets to see David Sedaris with Super Boo!! We adore him & attend his show whenever he's in town. 
I enjoyed walking through 2 art exhibits on display as I left Overture. 
The things I left behind, above. On the second day I wore this dress it was to garage sales & work. Pretty shoes & a Velvet Elvis...I hope somebody gave these good homes. 
Fabulous garage sale scores on this day included...2 vintage suitcases & a plant stand...
As well as a vintage sewing case; some vintage jewelry, including many seashell necklaces that I have plans for; silver serving stuff; a dress made in Cameroon in the 90s; a hatbox, a frog (I intend to store my eyeliners in it); a vintage metal Cutex box; a pencil sharpener; a ceramic warming pot; & many lovely plates & cups. 
And on the third day, work & then...Super Boo & I had a delicious lunch at Stalzy's Deli...the smoked pork Rachel is my favorite.
Kate's new wine toy, a porrón, was so much fun to use & spill on ourselves! It turns out we were using it wrong & it is much more impressive when you take the cork out. 
In addition to wine fun, Kate brought us kale salad & market berries to nibble on during Concert on the Square. It's a good thing white wine doesn't stain. 
My make-up with this dress included...


  1. Wow, that dress is a stunner! I love your finds too. Vintage suitcases make my heart sing. :)
