Revival Files: Think Pink

Minus the grandma sleeve bat wings going on and the 80's jersey sweat band for cuffs, when I found it I knew this dress would be completely perfect for summer. Light cotton, pale pink and stripes. Hello dress, where were you in July when it was hotter than a furious monkey's arm pit!? Fah reals! So get this, after I finished this dress and did my little fashion show for Matt he said, "So how many dresses do you HAVE now??" I gave him the stink eye because I totally knew where this was going and said."...twenty...ish...give or take ten...ish" guys Indie passed out on the floor when I said this, Matt did one of those cartoon things where his head exploded and steam flew out the top. And I just sat there all innocent like and said, "But this ones just sooo cute too! And come on, I get them all from the thrift store." and he just looked at me with that charming Matt look for about thirty seconds until I cracked, "Yeah alright already I'll sell it. Sheeeeeesh!"  
Soooooo.... this beauty is up for sale for $25. It is a 28-30 inch waist, A-B size bust and will fit you like a dang glove. Email me (at woohoo4sarahatyahoodotcom) if ya want it!

  2. This turned out SO CUTE! If I was not in your same exact position having 25 million dresses (and trying to save money!) I would totally snatch it up! You gave it a major face lift and I really like the idea of this whole Revival File series! I fix up vintage and thrifted dresses on a weekly basis and always forget to take the "before" pictures!

  4. So adorable! I have a tons + four dresses, it isn't even funny. While sometimes I long for the company of a man friend, maybe in this case, it is for the best flying solo - I don't have anyone giving me the stink eye when I buy another article of ropa that might push me over the edge to appear on Hoarders: The Clothing Edition.

    You look lovely! Such a pretty color. :)
