Yummy Yellow

As previously mentioned here and here, I attended a Vintage Bazaar back in May and purchased three pieces.  This yellow shirt dress was the last find, and boy what a find! 
By the time I found this vendor selling this dress I was all out of cash and to my horror she didn't have a credit card machine.  Knowing just how much I wanted the dress, the vendor asked me how much money I had.  I replied, "You don't want to know," because I didn't want to insult her.  She said, "try me."  I looked in my wallet and counted the coins I had and told her I had eighty cents.  To my delight and surprise, she sold it to me because the dress had been in their shop for so long and she just wanted to get rid of it.  EIGHTY CENTS folks, eighty cents!  I can't believe that it hadn't sold.  Well I had a vision for this lovely, especially since I have a pink one just like it.  This style of dress is just my type.

  15. Your fashion sense was on target as always! That dress compliments your figure and looks lovely against your skin tone. That was a major score! Now here I was about to post about my $5 dollar dress I got because of a busted zipper seam and you beat me out my scoring this amazing dress for $0.80 cent. lol!
