So some of you know about my recent attempt to validate this trend calling talent I have by buying a pair of vintage high waisted seventies bell bottoms before the trend hit. (PS check out H&M's pants this spring) A lot of you still don't believe I have a sixth sense for this but I keep telling Trent about things that are going to come out and then they totally do and he is a believer now. Anyways I bought a gorgeous pair of vintage jeans. Almost perfect condition, they even had the tags on still:
It was an excellent plan except for one tiny flaw. Apparently GAP has skewed my idea of how women's sizes work so much that what I thought was my size is really three sizes too small. Go figure. There was no way I was going to fit into those jeans without significant cosmetic surgery. If any of you are in the market for a really fabulous pair of jeans in about a size 4 let me know.
Fast forward to now. Trent's brother is getting married in August and I need a dress. And it has to be a bright summery dress so that makes my wardrobe of black and gray out of the question. After weeks of looking at things that were probably too short or would need a shirt under or over I decided to give vintage another shot. I mean ALL of shabby apple's dresses are pretty much just vintage inspired anyway right? Why not get the real thing? I picked out three for the same price as one new shabby apple remake and made sure they would all fit generously. Worst case scenario I can take something in right? SO here they are:
They are in the mail as we speak, stay tuned to find out if I actually can pull this off! Now to find a really great belt...
