my latest treasure find…

while thrifting is therapeutic for me…i do have friends that tease me…as i am on a mission to find those beautiful discarded vintage pieces…the ones that…once they are gone…they are gone…they tease me…saying “do you think you are going to save every vintage piece?” to which of course…i know the answer…but if i can save one or two…from being bought from someone who just doesn’t realize the quality and value of the piece…to use for…i don’t know…fabric for pillows…i want to feel that i’m doing my part…

so…of course…i have found some amazing pieces…not every time i’m out…but that is part of the hunt…part of the thrill…

so imagine my excitement when i found this beauty…from the 1950’s…the colors are SO beautiful…this gem needed some work…some of the seams had come undone…there was a tiny rip in the shoulder…but of course…i have my lovely mamacita…tailor extraordinaire…she did her magic…and the dress is in perfect order…

now it is usually the case…that i find these beauties…and they don’t fit…but that is ok…because i know that i could always find a buyer…one who appreciates the beauty that is in vintage…but this one…i thought…let me just try it on…to see how close i come to fitting in it…

it was a perfect fit…i have never been so thrilled in my life…my mamacita always tells me i was born in the wrong era…she loved the dress on me…i even got a thumbs up from the papacito…i think it took him back to his early days…

so this one is staying with me…the color…the fit…it is me…completely…
