kellyshoestrings 's Thoughts:

I am so in love with this dress because it’s like everything I ever dreamed of as a little girl – it’s basically a lemon yellow version of the classic Marilyn Monroe dress! (It has sleeves though, too.) I love the surplice neckline and the amazing and full pleated skirt, you can’t help but twirl! The thing is, it is not made for my body and I just would never wear it as much as I think it should be worn or appreciated.

And so, it is for sale on my etsy
along with those amazing heels! they just don’t quite fit me! darn.

AND! right now if you buy an item in my store, you get 25% off! OR you can buy two items and receive half off the second item of equal or lesser value! This is my way of saying thank you to all you vintage buyers out there for “recyling” by wearing vintage or pre-loved clothing! Happy Earth Day! This offer is valid until tomorrow evening at 9PM – the 23rd of April.

much love! I think the rain is over here…. and I think I’m glad about that! I love the cold weather but I was excited to be wearing all my spring/summery clothes.
