So, when I my search for a green cocktail dress continued this fall (I had no luck last season, but I guess that's a good thing since anything I bought wouldn't fit me now), and as dismayed as I was that The Joan Dress sold out before I could procure the funds, I did find quite the beaut on ebay last week.
It fits like a glove and is the perfect shade of green! It's from the 40s (and it's got the metal zipper to prove it), a few minor stains but otherwise in good condition, and was only $21! I may hem it (I tossed it over to the fashists to see what they think), but do you think I should, readers? I am short so it is a bit lengthy, but yet it's vintage and I feel the length adds to the style, and I would always wear it with heels. What would you do?
I have more pictures of it at my flickr!
