This dress is one of the first things I bought at Beacon's Closet after moving to Brooklyn. I might not wear it as often as I do other dresses in my closet, but it's definitely one of my favorite finds. It started it's life as a maxi dress, but I just felt like that was too much of a good thing when it came to this fabric, and converted it into a mini. It's such a bright, loud, large floral pattern! I actually had a former co-worker who said she had a dress made out of this exact fabric in the 70s! That's one of the fun things about vintage. Every piece has a unique story, but sometimes you find connections to the past in the strangest places.

I'm linking up with Real Girl Glam, The Pleated Poppy, and Transatlantic Blonde.
