"Word" To The Finding Gods
I found a find today. A biggie.
After an interview for a job (yes! step one!) I went to a vintage by-the-pound near my house to just pass the time and look at clothes that I wouldn't buy. In addition to the following I also found a yellow and white striped, super-wide leg terry pantsuit.
It actually screamed " 1977, L.A, A POOL IN THE HILLS + YOU, ME, A DRINK, AND A FLOPPY WIDE BRIM HAT BABY", which kinda freaked me out/made me want it so bad (in related news, disco can save lives).
What I did find was this dress:
I can't seem to get a picture that does it justice in the teeny basement that is my apartment, however, the original price of this dress (which is in perfect condition save the single hook + eye that is on a loose thread) was $140 at 69 Vintage. I have photographic evidence of the original tag.
But at their amazing, lovely, fantabulous, ridick, ridonk, awesome, brilliant, e.t.c By-Th-Pound it cost $10.50, including the belt and scarf I got with it.
um yeah. Pretty much.
I suppose I had a bit of a 50's-y, vintage-y day seeing as I also wore this very comfortable (faux) fur wrap:
Me likey. Found at after cleaning out my closet-y. It keeps me warmy in the October fall. Y.
Later: I put the dress away and discovered it had pockets. !!! pockets!
