My little black dress.

I just wanted to share my newest dress... My little black dress! My beau purchased it for me from Hollywood Regency Vintage in Phoenix, AZ. I actually spotted this beauty a couple of weeks ago. I was in HRV looking for clothes to shoot in and I saw this dress. I thought I would try it on and see if it would work for the shoot we were planning on doing. It fit like a dream!! Finding vintage 40's that fits my long torso is especially difficut! Usually if the vintage fits, the waist comes just under my boobs and not at the waist at all. So this dress was just right fitting at the actual waist! As beautiful as it looked, it unfortunately wouldn't work for the shoot and me being a broke bastard, I had to put it back on the rack. There are dresses that I love and fitr in the past, but none hurt like this one. Sigh...

So yesterday, my sweetheart and I decided to visit Heidi at HRV and on the way there he tells me he would like to buy me a dress and I should think about getting that one from HRV since I couldn't shut up about it! LOL. YAY!!!

I wish this picture would show just how great it is! It has a front peplum(?) with a sash hanging on the end. It really is gorgeous. I think this will be my little black dress. For coktail evenings or even fancy lunches out on the town.

So this is the dress... wish it showed up better. I'll take photos for sure when I wear this beauty!


  1. Ohhhhhhhhhhh!! I am so glad you got that one. I love the back on it with all the studs. It is one of the nicest 40s dresses we had!! Yay for you!

  2. Those studs are beautiful!

    You're lucky to have cocktail parties to wear that to :(

  3. Hey, we miss you! Are you on facebook? We couldn't find you.

  4. Red... I am excited to have it myself. It fits so well!

    C-Dot... It is even more gorgeous in person. The front is amazing!

    RunningDog... I am, but I keep it only to keep in touch with family.
