Oh, another dress...

Last night while watching Poirot I was a good little girl and tackled my overflowing repair pile and had some tea. The tedious activity of repairing is much more enjoyable with murder mysteries.
Anyway, in the pile I found this dress, which my mother gave me last year to sell on Etsy, but I never got around to it. When she had it I had taken it in for her, because she's about a size smaller than me, so all I had to do was take the stitches out and iron out the crumples!

Ok so everyone listen, this is very important. Twila Jean has entered a fabulous contest to appear in an episode of Mad Men. So if you could take a short moment to click here and press "Vote", she would appreciate it so much! It really will only take a second, plus you can see the fantastic photo of Twila in her retro kitchen :)

Dress-Gift from mother

Belt-Thrifted

Shoes-Urban Eccentric Vintage

I love that dress! I've always wanted a 50s halter dress, they cover so much better than the modern ones..those just make me look like I'm about to fall out of my top!

This dress looks so perfect on you! I love the print. I know what you mean about the "repair" pile. Mine has been getting ridiculous lately, but tackling it during Mad Men has seemed to help a little ;)

YOU should be in mad men, solanah. although you have more of a 40's/50's vibe, you are so versatile, you could pull off mid 60's easily.

you and your family & friends are setting a great example by returning to "old fashioned" things like homemaking, sewing, women really being women, etc.

keep it up, you guys are fabulous!!
