I scored this dress for around $10 in the Ross Dress for Less clearance dresses – in November. Apparently, no one wanted this much spring even in the spring.
A couple of years ago, I would have looked at it, and shuddered. I did not wear flower prints. Ever.
Maybe because I wore the heck out of ’em in the 80s, all giant shoulder pads, even bigger lace doily collars, and in your face flower power. And let’s not forget the hair permed within an inch of its life and the bright blue eye shadow.
Wait, let’s do forget.

This dress has some great details, pleats at the bottom of the skirt, a built-in full slip or lining, and the best part, pockets.
|Candies Mary Janes (Kohls clearance a long time ago); Reading glasses (part of a three-pack from Walmart. Yup.)|
I’ll buy almost anything that has pockets. Maybe it’s because my sister and I were told to get our hands out of pockets so many times as kids, that they seem like a luxurious sin now.
