A Keeper

I bought this dress recently at one of my favorite charity shops...

I was stunned at the condition of this dress; it looks brand new.

It's a 1950's - early 60's day dress in purple plaid; with ric rac trim and big buttons. It's a classic.

Initially I was planning on selling it but now I think I am going to keep it; as it fits me, and I don't have a lot of vintage day dresses that actually fit me. People were miniature 60 years ago; I think.

A little hat, a pair of wrist gloves, and maybe a light cardigan sweater, and I'd feel like I was in the Andy Griffith show. :)

I wish I could've lived through the 50's. I always thought doing housework in a dress was so glamorous! :)

I love it! It looks great on you--you should keep it. :-)

You look darling in that dress! That was an incredible find. I have such a hard time finding day dresses - even miniature ones!
