Dear Friends,

This lovely navy and white 1940’s number is unlike any dress I own. It has three-quarter length sleeve, a v-neckline, and a really flattering detail around the hips and bum. It was a little loose on me and, while a wonderful woman (pictured above) offered to tailor it for me, I choose to take an olive-tan 50’s cocktail dress that fit me perfectly.

The lesson: Unless it’s perfect, don’t take it (even if it’s free) because you simply will not wear it.

Thanks for reading friends!
