found it, kept it


While shooting photos the other day I found a keeper. I shot this dress and immediately after that I put it on and then wore it the rest of the day and out that night. It's a great understated early 1940s black crepe dress with zero embellishments, bells or whistles, which I love because though it's vintage it doesn't scream vintage. Also the crepe is stretchy so the dress is very comfortable. Perhaps one day it will make its way into the shop, but my guess that won't be for a long while.  And yeah, my hair is dirty here, the life of a vintage seller isn't all glamour...;)
