A Wonderful Surprise




Yesterday morning on my daily trip to the post office, I was completely surprised to find a package waiting for me. I saw who it was from and started shaking with excitment! Then came the happy tears, haha. It was a lovely 1940s dress, just my size! It was from Lauren of Dear Golden Vintage. A little while back Lauren came across a large lot of dresses from the 30s and 40s that belonged to three sisters. So, if you're looking for the perfect 30s/40s dress check out Lauren's beautiful shop where she'll be listing all those gems! Heck, check out her shop anyway because it's the best! :o)

Thanks so much Lauren! I love it!

Hello! Beautiful dress and beautiful story! are always looking for vintage clothing, what fascinates me most is their story, the idea of wearing a dress that has a story to tell and maybe be able to relive it in some way. Maybe it's silly, but for me it is! Bye!

What a gorgeous dress! You always look so so perfect in 40's dresses. It's inspired me to search for my own 40's dress. I think I've found mine, and I'll be posting it on my blog soon, but I'll be lucky if it's half as cute as one of your 40's dresses!
