This dress is a total bad ass. I know, I know, it doesn’t look like it. It’s pink, cotton, and detailed with embroidered flowers, but deep down it’s like my bad ass grandma that still paints her own house at 78.
Not only has it been around for 50+ years, but this is the dress that barely survived the bike wreck. I took it to my favorite tailor and she fixed it right up for me.
Last fall, I won a gift certificate to Butter Toast Boutique in a raffle and this is one of the dresses I bought with it. I usually have an aversion to pink but I feel like this dress might be changing my mind, and it’s perfectly light weight for our brutal summers.
dress: vintage- Butter Toast (link is to their Etsy, for you non-locals!)

I always feel guilty when something has been around for half a century, swapping owners & bouncing between thrift stores, garage sales, and vintage shops, and my (or my cat’s) grubby paws destroy it. Like the mint condition vintage couches we had when we adopted two kittens, may they rest in peace (the couches, not the kittens- they have grown up to be furniture destroying cats!)…
