Skirt/Dress: Vintage Sweater:Vintage Shoes:Frye

I stumbled on the holy grail of thrift shopping yesterday: An entire rack of new dead-stock clothing 1950's - 1960's. Skirts, Sweaters, Dresses, Blouses- everything. And wait here's the kicker- it had all been recently dry cleaned and was still in the plastic bag to prove it. All of the clothes still had the original tags, and fit me! I went absolutely crazy in there, buying 25 garments, and everyone was so nice at the store, too. I felt official with my hanging rack on wheels, and I got a sweet vintage Dooney & Burke wallet, as well. Yup yup yup, not a bad day at all.
