A Dress Trade With An Elegant Gal






Vintage 1950's Dress: Trade with Casey
Belt: Made for me by Casey!
Purse: In my shop!
Shoes: Michael Kors, thrifted

A few weeks ago Casey and I decided it would be fun to do a vintage dress trade! Being that I adore Casey's style and we wear just about the same size I knew it would be the perfect match. When I received Casey's package in the mail I couldn't wait to tear that baby open, hehe! When I saw the dress I squealed with delight, then rushed to try it on. It couldn't have fit more perfectly! I'm madly in love with dress and I am going to wear it as much as I can while I have it, hehe. Not only did Casey send me this dream of a dress, but she made me the sweetest white bow belt that goes with it just wonderfully! She also surprised me with a great picture book of old Hollywood Star Shots and a mini pocket Elvis book! What's the next best thing to getting a new dress? It's doing a dress swap with a fabulously stylish gal! Thank you so much Casey! We should do this again sometime! ;o)
Be sure to check out Casey's blog for the dress I sent her!

Eeeek!!! The dress looks gorgeous on you--and I love how the bow belt looks! ;) (Now I've gotta make one for myself... haha!) I'm so, so glad we did this--it's been a blast and I've so enjoyed swapping dresses! :) You're a doll!
