I was doing some blog housekeeping yesterday when I found this post, which was never published! Silly me!!
I actually wore this dress yesterday so I thought I should post it now because you wont be seeing me in a sheer dress for quite a long time. This one should have been posted back in September for our date night to see Captain America (which had some gorgeous hair styles, by the way!) The shoes and gloves in this post are long gone now. The shoes found a new home with another vintage loving gal and the gloves were sadly lost during a photo shoot.
I wore this sheer green 40's dress, which I have owned for over a year and have not posted a single pic on this blog! It has the sweetest little dainty buttons.
I bought it for less than $10 from a funny vintage/odd-things shop in St Louis called Binge and Purge when I did my Vintage Tour of St Louis. Sadly, Binge and Purge was flooded last year and had to closed but they just reopened in a new location at the end of October.
I brought my little mink poodle brooch, Ginger along for date night too. Ginger doesn't get out much because she's so soft and Olivia always wants to pull her away from me, so I reserve her for kid-free outings.
I bought these vintage green suede maryjanes around december of last year and haven't worn them out until yesterday. They are handmade designer shoes and carry the legendary label, La Rose. If you don't know about La Rose shoe designs, you can read about him here. Starlets such as Jane Mansfield, Betty Grable and Joan Crawford were fans of La Rose shoes and I'm a fan of anything green!
