AMAZING! Not only was it in GREAT condition (there was a few bleeds in the back from the red running onto white from what looks like washing) but it was completely chic! I imagined it living a life of glamor and prestige. Very Jackie Kennedy. So I dared to ask what a beauty like this was fetching (I figured in the upper figures since it was dated back to the 50's, so said the seller.) and when I heard the price I was told my jaw dropped, and I looked like I was about to faint.... $20!!!!! Can you believe it!!!!! Without hesitation the wallet was whipped and the woman was paid.
I wasn't entirely sure that the era was correct, so I did a bit of investigating and sure enough the label was that of a early 50's brand sold at Sears in New York! There was a swell of pride. I won't lie.
Also scored this...
OK, OK.... so it's not vintage. But it looks so 1930's don't you think? It's Anna Sui (from Anthropologie) but it was meant to be mine! I had seen it last summer but it was beyond my budget. Then it was on sale but still a bit pricey. Then it was marked down to $69.95 and sold out immediately! I was very sad and decided it just wasn't meant to be....... then, low and behold, one was returned, AND IN MY SIZE, and the best part.... it was now $29.95!!!! It was fated. We were meant to be together. It will be a love affair to last the ages...... or at least through summer anyways. Ha! Outfit posts soon to come.
