Oh la la!

Thank you thrift store Gods
for putting this scrumptious vintage prom dress on the Halloween rack.
Even though I have no clue what to do with it, there was no way I was leaving it behind.

It still has it's matching gloves!

  2. Woohoo! Is that beautiful or what? And it still has the matching gloves, wow! What a find, Sarah. You really do get the neatest things. I am envious. lol Though I have to admit that going through the boxes in Mom's storage unit is almost like going to my own private flea market. It has been such hard work, but I have found some really cool items. We only have until tomorrow to empty the storage out and my house and patio are absolutely covered. (yikes!) As soon as I can slow down a bit, I am going to learn how to make a proper post with pictures and links etc. Perhaps I can share some of the lovely collections Mama has gotten over the years. That ought to make quite a few posts for a while. Anyway, I love that dress and can just imagine how lovely some young girl felt putting it on for her special day ;-) --Leslie

    Look on the Country Living site. They have a little girl's room that they hung some old prom style dresses on the wall and it is SO cute!
    What a lucky find!

    You shall frame it and hang it on Miss Thing's wall. When she is older, maybe she will be a vintage diva and wear it with great delight. I would!
