Hawaii 1940





1940s Sailor Dress: Bad Girl Vintage on Etsy
Purse: in my shop!
Shoes: Walmart of all places for $5

Most of you probably know that I have been searching for a 1940s sailor dress for quite a while. I'd always find one that I loved and it would be way too pricey or not the right size. I've even attempted to make one myself! So, the other day I was searching Etsy like many other days and saw this pretty little sailor dress that had just been listed. It was as cute as can be, from the 1940s and the right size! I didn't think twice before I clicked the purchase button! Yay! I now have a 1940s sailor dress. Yet another mission accomplished!

PS: I haven't forgotten about the second of the dresses Maria sent. I'm going to save that one for this weekend because it's gonna be 80 degrees!

Oh! This is such a perfect little dress! Hurrah for the Etsy stars aligning so you could get it! ;) I just love the red accents; so cute and yet slightly different from the usual blue/white. So cute!
