I bought this sheer 1970's dress from Etsy several weeks ago; the bell sleeves were pretty but too giant for me to be able to wear anything over the dress or even belt it, so I had the circumference taken in at my local tailor's. The dress still retains its vintage charm but is a little more modern this way and easier to work with.
I'm trying out something new with my photos. I've had a couple of requests to make them larger, so I decided to give it a shot. As always the photos are clickable, but starting with this post you should be able to either scroll around the pop-up image or you can click it again to magnify it further. Unfortunately I'm not very savvy with web and html stuff, so I've been afraid to mess with the configuration that I know works. Let me know if it looks terrible.
Dress: from Planet Claire Vintage

Now if only I had an outfit like this one...
