You may remember Dallas as that TV show your parents watched in the 80’s. I remember it as that show I jokingly ordered from Netflix the summer I was unemployed and ended up watching all 13 seasons in the following years. In my defense, I was always knitting or doing some sort of crafting simultaneously. Why am I talking about Dallas? This dress totally reminds me of something one of the Ewing ladies would wear.
I thrifted this 80’s dress a few months ago and finally (as part of my Spring Break goals!) hemmed it to a more wearable length for tastes. I should have taken a before photo of the super-unflattering shin length.
One time Linda Gray, one of the stars of Dallas, ate at the restaurant I work in. She wasn’t our first celebrity, we get our fair share of musicians and athletes. She was however, the first celebrity that I ever recognized.
She was seriously so sweet (and beautiful!) and seemed a little surprised a 20-something (umm, at the time…) was a fan of Dallas. She even surprised me by mailing autographed photos to me at the restaurant the following week, which of course, catapulted her to my favorite character on the show ;)
I thrifted this jacket earlier in the week, upon a quick glance thinking it was vintage. It’s not, but I still think I like the green color and shape. What do you think?
