Golden Garbs- Black & Yellow

 Have you ever gone shopping in your own closet? You know, re-discover something you've had for a while, that just got shuffled to the back. That recently happened to me, when I was organizing my closet over the weekend, to prepare for the fall. I came across a few things that I had forgot about.....It was a nice little treat, like finding money you forgot you had, in your pocket! It was like having a new dress!

As I mentioned in my last fashion post, I get quite delighted when I find modern pieces of clothing, that identify a vintage aesthetic. This dress was one of those lucky finds, made by an indie designer! I picked this cute little black & yellow, floral-textile print up at my local Buffalo Exchange a few years back. It's a little higher above the knee then I'm used to for a dress (and maybe just a tad snugger than I remember-ha!), but none the less. I thought it had a 1940's cotton sundress look to it. Pretty sure the vintage feel of the fabric is what caught my eye in the first place! Well, that and I'm always a sucker for the color yellow. It was just too cute, and for 2 cents shy of 10 bucks (yes, I do remember what I dish out for things!), it just had to come home with me....So I brought it to life again!
