A few weeks ago an old friend caught up with me through this-here blog. Her husband is an even older friend of mine from "back in the day" when I still lived up in NoCal. She's really cute, really fun, and the both of them love Disneyland to an insane degree. Whenever we can, we try to meet up when they come out for their yearly week-long Disneyland Funfest. Anyway, I followed the link at her blog to her Ebay store.

Oh, what a delightful mistake that was.

She sells vintage clothes. Lots of beautiful vintage clothes. Eye candy for dayyyyyyys. And then I found Something. Something I MUST HAVE. Unfortunately I didn't have the presence of mind to save a large photo of it while the link was still active, but you can kinda see here. Yes, I won the bidding:

I know, I know. You're thinking, "Wow, that's a beautiful dress. WTF do YOU want with it?"


I may not be able to fit in the damn thing, but that's what girdles are for. I don't know where or when I'll be able to wear it, but damned if I don't find a way to look fancy for some reason.

Just you wait.

Oh that dress is awesome and it's going to look fantastic on you. Are you also going to do a vintage hairstyle?

Of course! I can't wear modern flatiron hairstyles to save my life anway...might as well go whole hog on looking old-school fancy!

I would love to be able to dress in my vintage stuff everyday. I think that you are going to look like a swell tomato in that get up lady. Ya get me?

Ladies get all the great clothing options.

This is one of them.
