More like Laura Smashley

So I found this vintage Laura Ashley at Value Village a couple of days ago. The pattern and the quality of the fabric is what reeled me in, and for 7 bucks I thought: “WHAT COULD IT HARM?”

I made the mistake of buttoning the topmost button. It hurt like the dickens.

    I love playing spot the son in your pictures. You’ve sold me on the dress, but I wasn’t immediately convinced.

      Ha! I love how it’s always one and not all three.
      THEN I’VE DONE MY JOB. Ha. What a cool job to have. Yeah, it’s kind of an odd dress but I love it. 😛
