Does your favorite dress make you feel awesome? Mine does. I have a few that I love, and this Navy Blue Bow Print 40s Rayon one, is definitely in my top five. The best part about it, is the bodice and neckline. It has a faux two-piece look - as if the neckline is open with a blouse underneath - but the non-functioning buttons make it look like its buttoned up. Also, the very pointy collar with the silver chain swag is a great tough. Lastly, the angled pockets are a great touch - who doesnt love a dress with pockets?! I found this lovely dress at a local private sale, a woman here in town invited me into her home to purchase dresses and accessories that belonged to her mother and sister in the 40s and 50s. I was really happy becaues a majority of the pieces were sized from 10-14. This one I couldnt let go of. Its clearly handmade and fits me perfectly.
The shoes arent vintage - but you'd think they were, right?

Sadly, I didnt get a chance to work out yesterday. I had the worlds worse sinus/allergy attack and I literally got home and fell on the sofa - and passed out until about 7pm. A hot shower and some good food cured me and by the time I was feeling better, it was far too dark to trot around my twisty road. Tonight, Im going to try to get to a local state park and do a tad of HIKING!
