dress: vintage | cardigan: have had forever, not sure | shoes: thrifted | bag: myfolklover

a couple of weeks ago i headed to louisville, ky to meet my parents for the weekend.
it was nice to get out of west virginia and enjoy familiar faces.
we grabbed a few books at barnes and noble, ate some delicious cuban food, and shopped at some lovely vintage stores.
at the stores i was not having much luck finding anything that fit me right until i saw the rough rack. (a rack filled with tattered dresses) 
i saw this dress and the neckline was a mess but with my hair being so long i thought no one would notice & could not resist the five dollar price tag.

  10. ummm, I think we were in Louisville, KY at the same time. My aunt and uncle live there, and I visited them in Louisville for a week and a half. Why!? Why didn't I know!?

    You are looking ever so lovely. I adore the dress because it is the perfect length and pattern. AND I got the skirt in the mail today and it fit like a dream. Thank you for the shirt as well! I can't wait to style it up.
