The Mean Reds.....New Favorite Dress

First off, I must apologize for missing Film Fashion Friday. It completely slipped my mind, what with all the preparations for Easter and with my final college semester winding down. I graduate May 1st and I simply cannot wait!!! Until then, my posting may be sparse, with all the paper writing that is going on!

Anyways, today I offered to do the grocery shopping for our Easter dinner for my mom. I am one of those crazy people that actually enjoys grocery shopping. I don't know why I do, it's just one of those things I enjoy, like doing the laundry. Today was also a warmer day here in Southeastern Michigan, that is until the rain started. I had planned on wearing my new Remix sandals with this dress, but the rain forced me to put on more practical shoes.

Regardless of the rain, I decided this was the prefect day to break in my new vintage SWIRL dress!!! I have been wanting and searching for one of these things FOREVER. And last week, after being out bid on several dresses on eBay, I was finally the highest bidder! The dress came last week and I have been itching to wear it since. I thought grocery shopping was very appropriate, since that is what many women in the past probably wore them for. I just love this dress. it is so comfy and figure flattering. I hope that someday I might be able to own a few more!
I have so many things I want to share with you all from last week -- including some great finds at some sales, so hopefully I can throw together an update post before classes start up for the week. :)

I hope everyone has a wonderful and blessed Easter holiday.

Yay I love Swirl dresses, I currently own five of them... two were deadstock from an estate sale and my most recent one has a large fruit print on the bodice and a green skirt (and was found in Brooklyn). If you're looking for more email me your measurements and I'll keep a lookout for you! They seem to turn up fairly regularly in Chicago.
