unexpected gifts


Not too long ago I purchased some boots from CraftyCrow on Etsy; it wasn't my first purchase from the shop, it's been one of my favorites for a long while. The shop owner, Brook, and I discovered through our transactions that we have a lot in common by way of the vintage clothing history we love. It's always nice to befriend another vintage seller, someone who knows just what it's like to be complete obsessed and overrun by vintage. It's especially fun when someone you've never met sends you a dress that is so completely you in every way. Brook sent this dress to me and when I opened up the package it was love at first sight. Pale, cotton, crochet, bohemian - what's not to love?

1970s cotton gauze & crochet dress - gift from CraftCrowy
