Who Would've Thought???

Hey dolls! :D Happy Friday! I just got back from the gym and I'm doing a quick post for ya'll before I head out vintage/thrift shopping...I cannot wait. I swear, I could vintage/thrift shop everyday and never get sick of it. It's like a treasure hunt! :)
Some of you may wonder what the title of this post means... well, this dress I'm wearing happens to be an old grandma/mumu-esque dress that I purchased at a vintage shop in college. I took it to an alterations shop, had them hem it up, I added a belt...and voila! A cute dress! I really love the bold colors and the flower print... and it's definitely something I can wear in the summer or into the fall...just add tights/leggings...even boots!
It's one of the first vintage pieces I ever purchased, yet I've only worn it 4 or 5 times. Every time I put it on, it makes me smile. I really love how vintage clothing brings back memories...not only memories of when you've worn them, but also of who the clothing might have been worn by...and when. Anyways, I'm going to stop rambling and start my day! Hope everyone has a grand 'ol day! Don't forget to enter my giveaway (ends next Tuesday), enter HERE! :D
