polka polka polka dots!!

This dress came from the salvation army store here in town. It was like $5, and they were having a 50% off sale, so I got it for $2.50...I KNOW RIGHT OMG. It's tailored for someone with a slightly curvier figure than mine, but it fits really well considering it was thrifted. It has shoulder pads, which would have horrified me a couple years ago, but I like the shape it creates. This is a dress I could totally imagine my mom wearing when I was a little kid. I'm pretty sure she wore nothing but polka dots in the 80's, before I was born.

Okay I'mma be honest. I didn't wear this out of the house yet. I just had to show it off, and I couldn't post what I'm actually wearing today because that is my pajamas and then straight to my work uniform. Not very cool. But tomorrow I'm going to the Kansas City Renaissance Festival, so I'm sure I'll have a sweet look to post for that. It'll be my first time at a faire as a civilian in a looong long time, so it might be kind of uncomfortable for me, but I'm sure to get some sweet photos since I don't have to hide my camera.
