My Favorite New Dress!


Today in the mail I received my favorite new dress! I had been watching it on ebay, everyday obsessively looking to see how high the price had gone. When bidding night came I was so nervous I was shaking, haha! I put in my bid in the last 15 seconds and closed my eyes. Yes, it was mine!!! It's from the 1940s and in wonderful condition. I just love all the little details! You'll be seeing a lot of this dress!

I hope everyone is enjoying their weekends! It's still cold and rainy here, so it's time to get all cozy and warm and watch a movie. :o)

Dress from: Quitednest

I can see why you wanted that dress so much! If I would have spotted that I would have been bidding on it too ;)
Congrats on winning it though, it's so nervewracking to bidding on something you want so badly and knowing it could go either way in the last seconds.
That is one fabulous dress :)
