After seeing strawberrykoi’s two gorgeous plaid dresses featured as last weeks picks, Andrea of the wonderful blog A Cat of Impossible Colour, of course, went out the very next day and thrifted this wondrous specimen for only four dollars! Meanwhile, I remain plaidless. Jealous? moi?... yeah, a little. Though she did say that my “Thrift Goddess Incarnate powers” had something to do with it, along with thrift gods hypothesized to exist in the form of “old ladies in gloves and hats, knitting on a cloud” and really, you just can’t argue with that logic ;)
Well Andrea, if my thrifty powers did indeed have something to do with this, then I deserve a big ol’ pat on the back, because that is one fine dress and it looks totally amazing on you my dear! The shape is so lovely with the gathers at the waist and the slight bubble of the skirt, and those buttons! The anchor buttons are my favorite, so cool! The black tights and boots along with the lil’ black bow headband finish this outfit off perfectly, so well done!
