Lies and a Vintage Dress

Dress? Vintage, thrifted Shoes? DvF (here) Clutch? Coach, bridesmaids gift

This dress recently spent two long years waiting around patiently for its zipper to be fixed. Which is shameful because it deserves much more than that. Even though I love it so, the last time it appeared on the blog was almost three years ago. I had a funny little trip down memory lane looking for that post. In those days I was still a modest blogger; only posting two, small sized photographs per outfit... the good, old days of blogging, really. Sometimes it still blows my mind that finding old walls with vines and taking outfit pictures is part of our regular routine. I suspect it is something I won't ever tell my grandkids about... I'll lie and tell them that when I was younger, I didn't have time for the world wide web, I was too busy walking uphill to school in 3 feet of snow... both ways... everyday.

Sometimes, I like to leave a piece just hanging in the closet for a while... A long while... By the time you come back to it, it feels all fresh and renewed. I know they always say to get rid of things that you haven't worn in a year, but I DO wear things past that time.

Or, I'm just a hoarder.

Either way, I love the story of the fixed zipper. I have two lovelies that need a little zipper love right now. Is it pricey??
