My friends, a tragedy has been averted!
- Dress - Tangerine Jill, consignment
- Shoes - Big Presence Desmond, Fluevog; last worn here in June with murple and morange
I've only worn this dress a scant TWICE in the last FOUR years since I bought it here for only $42.00 in December 2011 when I went shopping with one of my readers, Marie. Here's how it's been worn before. Twice.
- December 2012 (here, 2nd outfit): with fuscia tights and black boots
- December 2011 (here) for New Year's Eve - check out the crimped 'fro
But enough dwelling on the past - the future is this dress. It's the Partidge Family bus and Piet Mondrian and stained glass, all rolled up in one.
I found it because I was looking through my dresses for ones I hadn't worn - I'd turned all the hangers in my closet backwards at the start of my spring/summer wardrobe swap, then I turned them back when I wore an item, and this was one of the last unworn dresses. It was with my party dresses - I had physically slotted it there. Mentally too, I guess.
- Belt - thrifted, vintage 80s
- Cuff - thrifted
- Earrings - Joyce's, vintage 80s
Vizzini watched me prepare to leave this morning.

It's almost criminal to forget a dress like that. I'm so glad you found it, and wore it in daylight! And I love your crimped hair from 2011. I hope Vizzini didn't eat your Chapstick, did he?ReplyDelete
Gorgeous! and you look amazing. Sheila if you ever get tired of that dress kindly ask for my mail.ReplyDelete
that is such a beautiful dress! And a great way to show that the reverse hanger method works! I was just telling a friend you were doing it and I'd be interested to see how you get on with it. :)ReplyDelete
Chapstick! Hmmm, he must have found a salmon-flavored version, that gorgeous boy. This dress is indeed the future - it's a stunner. xoxReplyDelete
I remember this dress! Guess I must have been reading your blog for years, unless I followed a link back to it more recently.ReplyDelete
Wow, I cannot believe you missed this dress either, its a work of art!ReplyDelete
Then again I can totally relate, these last couple of days I have been going through stuff I haven't worn in years.
And Vizzini is toooo cute! The most unusual things my dogs have eaten lately are ear plugs and toilet paper.
That is a fabulous dress!!!!ReplyDelete
I'm glad you recovered the dress! Isn't it amazing to find something you'd forgotten about? Especially something as cool as that. Love how perfectly it goes with your Vogs.ReplyDelete
