I had no expectation for finding anything this past weekend at Alameda when I arrived to find a line into the parking lot for the first time since I started going several years ago. I decided to wait it out and go anyway. I'm so glad I did.
It seems like I find things in themes from time to time. I was so pleased to find older dresses than I usually see at Alameda and in these gorgeous gossamer fabrics. I'm in love with the color and detail of the mint dress and the little bow, sleeve detail and delicate flow of this long yellow one. I think this is might be the first long dress I've owned in recent history.
Part of the fun will be choosing the perfect vintage slips to wear underneath and finding the right occasion for each. The seller of the yellow dress did throw in a matching parasol..... Gastby picnic, perhaps???
