I think a pink one would look especially pretty..

    Thanks Jessica. The blue floral Jerry Gilden is quite lovely. And I know what you mean about the 40s dress. That print is so yummy, if the dress had fit me I probably would have kept it! Of course, if I kept every vintage dress I loved, that fit me, I’d have to build a new closet!

    Awesomely pretty finds! I especially adore the blue floral fifties frock and forties housedress (the latter is scads to big for me, or else I’d be seriously tempted). You truly find such incredibly lovely pieces for your awesome shop, Theresa. It’s always a pleasure to checkout BVV’s latest additions.

    xoxo ♥ Jessica
