hessica 's thoughts:

I dont wear this crocheted dress often, but when I do, I always seem to attract the attention of senior citizens, predominantly female. (This is absolutely fine because I love old folks, how could ya not?) Yesterday (when I wore this), two of the most adorable elderly Asian ladies chatted with me about it for around five minutes. They asked me if someone made it special for me, and I told them that someone made it special for someone else and 30/40 years down the road, it ended up in a vintage shop and thus, in my closet. They said ahh.. it figures because they don’t sell that kind of thing in the stores. I wholeheartedly agreed.

I am wearing this vintage crocheted dress over a KOHLS slip, john lennon sunglasses atop my head and f21 gladiators.

Have a lovely day, Chictopians.

you are so welcome! most people just don't understand our obsession with vintage, they think "ewww old clothes", but they just don't realise how special it is, and how much BETTER they made stuff back then, and not this cheap mass-produced crud nowadays! even if I were a millionaire, I would STILL do this, cuz I am obsessed!

thank you so much! that is why i shop vintage! because you can find these one of a kind "treasures", plus i love all items that are nostalgic of another era.. and I love the idea of taking items from the past and reinventing them, which is what you do mainly for wicked plum :)

Such a pretty, unusually sexy dress! (I think the senior citizens are looking at you thinking "I have one of those in my closet! If I style it like this, I may look as hot as she does!" The shoes are a great touch! xoxox Carly
