It wasn't meant to be

I had gotten an email from Savers that on Wednesday there were having a sale for club card members. 25% off $25 or more and 40% off $40 or more.  I really didn't need anything and really shouldn't be spending any money.  I picked up a few skirts and some pants and hit the dresses. I found one that I fell for. I mean hard.  It was a green nubbly material and from the 60's.  It still had a tag on it regarding the material. It was my size. I had my doubts.  I always thought that the sizes from that era were sized on a larger scale. My Mom said she wore a size 8 back then but it was actually a 12 in today's sizes. I couldn't even zip the darn thing.

It had beautiful beading around the neck and sleeves. It came about an inch above my knees. The bottom picture is pretty close to the actual color. It is hard to get a good photo in a teeny tiny dressing room. I didn't use a flash because I didn't want to be that crazy lady in the dressing room!

I was so heartbroken, I just left the store.

Some day I will find a real vintage dress I can buy. Until then-I hope you find a good home, pretty green dress.
