Vintage Dress

I found this dress in the Antique Mall across from the actual mall. It's by a Toys R Us in case you still don't know what I'm talking about. Anyways, two friends and I had gone there one rainy afternoon and we started drying on a bunch of dresses for fun. I hadn't immediately loved this dress when I saw it on the hanger, it looked a little old. But once I put it on, I fell in love with it. So once I had sufficient funds, I went back and bought it for $25, which isn't bad for a dress from the 1960s. It's so beautiful, these are pretty bad pictures, you have to see it in person to understand. Now as it's so old, when I tried taking in the darts and fixing the zipper, the lace started to rip after touching it too much. The dress doesn't fit me perfectly because I didn't want to ruin it further, but I still like how it looks. Buying and wearing a vintage outfit has been on my Bucket List for years, and now I can cross it off.
