When I use it: “Whenever! It’s an amazing dress, and it will always hold a spot in my heart as the first vintage item I ever bought. I even recorded a song while wearing the dress. My favorite picture (the header of my blog!) is one where I’m smiling and hugging my ukelele while wearing the dress. Music is my life, and this dress is now associated [with] my music!”
Shopping Tips: “Never give up! Sometimes thrifting is really frustrating. Also, think about it for at least five minutes. It’s pretty, but is it comfortable? If it’s not, are you really going to wear it? Go with what you really love. It’s what makes items special.”
