another cute dress that just doesn't look particularly cute on me -- lavender is not my color. i really love the ascot collar, though. the dress is unlined and rather thin, so i would wear it with a slip. would definitely look really cut with a white and gold belt and white pumps.

another dress i wore once to a wedding and then stowed away in storage. in perfect condition and just got it dry cleaned, too. zips up the side; both skirt and bodice are lined. the hem has 2 tiers of ruffles with crochet edging. very sweet! this dress will cost slightly more to ship because of its bulk.


a mini-update

hello! this is sort of an update -- i haven't had much time to take more pictures, and this weekend i'm off to a wedding in another city, so i wanted list a few things before i go.

buy it!
item: pink mohair off-the-shoulder cowl neck sweater
price: $10 + shipping
condition: excellent pre-loved, worn maybe 3 times
brand: the limited
material: mohair blend
size: medium
sleeve: 28"
length: 18"

this sweater was given to me as a christmas present about 9 or 10 years ago. although it is absolutely gorgeous, i've only worn it a few times because it's a little short for me in the torso (common pitfall of being 6' tall). consequently, it is in excellent condition. it can be worn as just a cowl neck or off the shoulder; it looks particularly cute if you bunch up the front and pin a sparkly brooch on the cowl.

 this item is currently listed on eBay but this is like the 3rd time i've listed it, so i'm about to retire and just leave it up here.

another thrifted find, this nightgown has some really pretty details on the bib front in the form of lace edging and pleats. can be worn as a dress or paired with a skirt as a delicate, girly top.

that's all for now! coming soon: vintage silk blouses, a crazy 90s hot pink windbreaker, and some really rad sweaters.
