a dress that makes me want to dance

spring & summertime is my favorite time to go a'thrifting -- to pick up a long skirt that falls past knees, perfect for picnics that dwindle into evening bonfires. 

i found this lovely lady waiting for me, in front of all the dresses at the thrift store the other night. she fits like a glove, has a sweetheart neckline, a tea-length hem, and pockets. she gets her own post because, darn it, she just does. 

also: this dress makes me want to dance. & a wise friend once told me that when trying on clothes in the dressing room, she only buys things that make her dance. i'd say this lil' lady's a winner.
