The Thursday Thrift // A Lovely Find

vintage black dress

vintage style dress

When my mom came across this dress while out estate shopping, she was right in thinking that I would like it.  I do!  It is beautiful and has such great, subtle details.  The sheer black over the light green; the princess seaming; plus the ruffled, full skirt – it’s a new favorite that will get worn plenty.  I have a little bit of work to do with it though before it becomes one of my regulars.  My mom mentioned when she sent it to me that the straps would probably be a little big.  She was right, they are a little on the loose side but mostly because they are very stretchy.  She had a great idea, stitch a strip of ribbon to the underside to stop the stretch.  I think that will do a fine job.

A lovely Find - dress

I have just added ribbon to my ever-growing shopping list.  And, unfortunately, another item to my to-be-fixed pile; however, I think I will place this one on the top of the pile, it’s too pretty not to.

I am happy that it matches this black sweater as well.  Not that I don’t have plenty of things that match a black sweater, but this is one of my nicer ones and it has some green detailing along the edges.  Thanks, mom!  You’ve got great taste, and you know just what I’d like when it comes to pretty black dresses.

    If you’re into thrifting, have you tried Twice? It’s an online resale shop https://liketwice.com/ezTVZ if you’re interested. They give you $10 for signing up and $10 for installing their app (I did it on my phone and IPad so it got $20)
