My Absolute Favorite Vintage Dress

Who: Stephanie

What: Black Floral Vintage Dress (I want to say circa 1970s)

Where: Buffalo Exchange, Seattle, WA (I don’t live in Washington, though–I live in Illinois)

How Much: $15.00

When I use it: When I feel like wearing something different. I wore this dress to my high school senior banquet a couple years ago and everyone else had on short party dresses. It makes me feel good about myself every time I put it on.

Shopping Tips: When I shop in thrift stores it’s nice to have a goal. If I’m looking for a vintage dress, I search the entire rack because some of my best finds have been hidden in everything else. Also, where I live, most thrift stores organize things by color, which is very helpful. Make sure you really take your time and look through everything because you never know what is buried behind the not-so-pretty stuff.
