Fav Find: Laura Vs. Aretha

Who: Laura, ModCloth-obsessed.

What: Handmade vintage 50s dress with the best spring print ever.

Where: Lost and Found Vintage in Metro Detroit

How Much: $40

When I Use It: I wear it often, but most notably to the Detroit NAACP Fight For Freedom Fund Dinner. It might have even shown up Aretha Franklin’s hat that night…

Shopping Tips: Make friends with the people who work at vintage stores. It’s easier to negotiate prices and they show you the new stuff that’s not on the floor yet!

    This dress is amazing! I know Laura in real life (yes, even real life David) and she is honestly one of the coolest, most genuine people on this planet. So I would say Team Laura! Suck it Aretha.
