I have a thing for vintage dresses.
Or maybe they have a thing for me...whichever it is,
vintage is habitually my preference over new.
The fabric is usually softened from time,
and has details you don't often find in new garments.
But most importantly there's a story...
and even if I don't know the story, I know the dress has one.
Was it worn out to dinner?
Did it get picked often from the closet or hang there awaiting a special occasion?
Did she laugh or cry when she wore it?
Did she get kissed?
Was it her favorite?
I like imagining where the dress might have been...she could be a world traveler for all I know!
My latest vintage, hails from the 1950's.
A pin tucked bodice in the freshest of greens,
and a skirt that is filled with flowing script and a garden print.
I may not know where she has been,
but I can tell you where I have taken her...
She was worn for a special dinner.
She wore her red shoes.
And, yes...she got kissed.
Now she waits patiently till her next outing,
so she can add to her stories.
Do you have a favorite dress?
