About a month you ago you might have remembered my trip to see Sarah. We thrifted our hearts out and Hopes Treasures was amongst the thrift stores we visited. It was a small place and there were some gems hiding that I quickly snagged. When it was time to try on our finds I found myself really praying for this vintage piece. You know when you get ready to put something over your head and the thought "not sure if this is gonna make it" quickly goes through your mind?

Well, I was really praying, sucking in my stomach, and I almost dislocated my shoulder to get this baby on. Some of the girls were praying it didn't fit so they could get it....but you know how competitive I am...haha

IT WILL FIT...I held my breath...and... VOILA!

$3 later, I am now the proud owner of this delicately made, silk, vintage beauty and I LOVE everything about it. So what if I can only eat proteins and salad the day I wear this...it was worth it.

  1. So jealous of this entire outfit!! I must be living in the wrong area... I'd never find an amazing piece like that around here! And for only $3... I would've bought it even if it didn't fit! Haha!

  6. I think of dresses like these as my 'work-out motivators' when I feel that little pressure on my belly all day it reminds me to do some yoga when I get home.
    LOVE the pattern though, how awesome that it is 100% silk!
