I found this great dress a few weekends ago--it cost about $2 and though it was a diamond in the rough when I picked it up, after some hemming and altering, I am really happy with it. It's 100% silk and altered to fit my proportions, so I feel like Jentine must every day--totally un-imitatable. Thrifting a great silk dress must be the 21st century sartorial equivalent of the paleolithic people hunting down a really huge, delicious elk. I feel the pride of a hunter, so I am especially chuffed to have gotten several compliments on this yesterday.
