Vintage Findings: This Week's Loot

Photobucket
This pretty thing was found at the last stop of the two hour joy ride I got to take on Valentine's afternoon. It was one of those finds that you feel like you have to hide your excitement over so they don't realize what they have and take it from you! I love cheap thrills and this one came in at $2.00. I can't wait to wear it this spring!

xoxo,
Rachel

Love it! I had one of these when I was like 13 years old. So fun, I wish I could find another one! They sell them on ebay used for like $50! You got a super cute find for a perfect price!

Besides, you gotta love embroidery!

Andrea!!! said...

Seriously - I am having heart palpitations over this dress and the price - THE PRICE! What a steal!!! I walked away from a beautiful Mexican dress 2 years ago and am still kicking myself - I hope you feature this in VHVT soon because I'd love to see how you style it!

I haven't seen that color in a long time! What a beautiful burgundy dress. I wish I had your luck to find such a great outfit for that price!

Heather Mead Kim said...

I do the same thing when I snag something great at the thrift store. Instinctively, I snatch it up and casually tuck it beneath something else in my basket and act like it is no biggie. But inside, I am beaming with excitement and can't wait to get out of there with my purchase!!!!! LOVE that feeling.

Cat said...

LOVE IT!!! What a find.

A Joy said...
