I love finding treasures. I love finding something that has a lot of meaning. I love it more when it fits me!
Hand me down score! Joan and David flats from late 1980's or 1990's.
It needs a little cleaning.
Definitely a score when it's free and it fits! YAY!
Now this one is definitely a treasure that used to be one of my aunts.
It was hand sewn by my great aunt who was an impeccable seamstress.
I found this in my Mama's basement a long time ago and kept it until I could fit it.
After some minor alterations made by my Ma, this beautiful dress finally fits me!
Yep, I was so excited to wear this!
I have no shame in getting hand-me-down items. My "new to me" dress means a lot since it was made by my great grandmother, and will wear it proudly. Have you ever gotten anything from someone in your family that you currently wear? Old is the new "new"!
