Pink Valentine

dress- vintage, shoes- miu miu, ring- made her think, bracelet-chan luu
I bought this bright pink taffeta dress two years ago at an estate sale for $3, because it reminded me of the Oscar de la Renta dress that Carrie wore to McDonalds with the Russian. The dress color did not photograph well, but it is the same pink as Carrie's. I have never had a chance to wear it, because it needed some major tailoring and I finally decided to get it fixed to wear on Valentine's day. The woman who owned it before was rather tall and volumtious, but the fabric was so beautiful and at such a great price, I had to have it. I love buying stuff from estate sales, and I can't help but wonder who owned this dress and where she wore it. Oh, if only all things vintage could talk! I hope she enjoyed herself as much as I did wearing it. Jimmy and I went to our favorite Italian restaurant where I stuffed myself to the brim, then we recovered on the couch watching Twin Peaks. It was simple and lovely!
