I couldn’t help it. 🙂
Here is another interesting find:
I thought this was hands-down one of the ugliest things I’ve ever seen. However, I’m sure someone wore it and loved it. I love thinking about that: Who wore it? What drew them to this dress? Did they like the loud print and colors? Are their retinas intact?
I like checking labels, too. A union-made label is not something you see very often these days. It must have been a huge sense of pride back in the day. Oh, how things change. Think about everything that’s happened since you were born; on one hand, it probably doesn’t seem like much, but on the other hand, if you dig a little deeper, so much has changed. So often, what’s changed disappears–it gets eaten up by time’s passing. That’s one of the many reasons I like thrifting: you can get a peek into times past and have a chance to “re-live” or envision it before it heads off into obscurity (or the landfill). And sometimes, you can even save it from both!
