At Second Glance







1940's Playsuit and matching skirt: Metro Retro Vintage

I can't tell you how long I've dreamed about having a vintage playsuit with a matching skirt! I've always looked hoping someday one would pop up. I've maybe seen one other for sale ever! Well, when I was home sick the other week I was casually browsing Etsy with no intent on buying anything...then this little number appeared and just happened to be just my size. How could I pass it up knowing I might never see another again! Lets just say it arrived in the mail yesterday and I have only taken it off to sleep. I'll probably wear it again tomorrow and the day after that and well I'll try not to wear it for the next month, lol!
