I love vintage clothes. This little number I picked up at Fred and Ethel's in Rock Island, IL. I was really attracted to the bright colors and of course the velvet collar and bolero! And if that wasn't enough - it buttons up the back!
I usually like dresses that cinch-in at my natural waistline. The waistline of this dress hits somewhere between a natural waistline and an empire waist. Later I saw the tag and realized why the fit is a little strange... It says "SEARS - Girls Fashions - Designed for the Growing Girl." Haha! At my age, I hope I'm not growing too much - unless it's more fabulous.
Growing pains aside, this vintage-find is a keeper. Now a dance for joy!
