|dress and bangle: flea market; jeans: Gap; shoes: Cotton On; earrings: Ten Thousand Villages (gift from my Uncle)|
I wish I could tell you that this little red dress was a recent flea market find, but in reality, I scored this baby back in the ’90s when the hemline hit my knees. It was so big on me for years, but even back then I knew it was a special piece. I’ve held on to it and it has traveled with my closet through many moves, though I don’t wear it but once or twice a year. A conversation with Dago reminded me that it was hanging patiently in the back of my closet. It finally fits! What better time to bring it out than the early springtime celebration of SXSW?
