When Just A Dress Will Do

Dear Dress Lovers,
 
Maybe it was the black velvet.  Maybe the black satin.  Maybe it was the fact that this gorgeous, fits-like-a-glove dress had been hanging on the clothes rack until its date passed by and the thrift store management had categorized it as a 1$ purchase.  Yes.  One dollar.

 
So today I felt that no hat, no shoes, no accessories were needed.


Just this dress. 

 
With its satiny skirt and velvet bodice.

 
Its puffy shoulders. 


And its lovely satiny sash that drops with a bow over one hip. 

One dollar.

Don't you think that sometimes just a dress will do?

Oh.  For you tag hounds.  No formal label, but just this little heavy paper label sewn inside.


Anyone know what that tag means?

  4. I love the $1 rack. A local charity shop sometimes has a $0.10 rack! I found a burgundy velvet dress, I wore it a couple of times and just gave it to a friend.

  8. Well what an awesome dress! I adore the neckline, and what a great set of photos! The lighting, colours, and composition in #2 are especially outstanding.

    I referenced your spectacular $1 find in my post featuring my $1 blazer here:

  11. You look so beautiful, Dylan. I wonder if this was a custom dress, such as someone suggested above, maybe for a group of awesome bridesmaids? I was in a lot of weddings back in th' day, and I would have killed for a black velvet dress, but no, got puffy purple Southern belle complete with hoop instead.
