Spring florals.

As much as I love the winter chill I enjoy being able to shed the layers of thick winter fabrics and don a simple sun dress.
Last month I went to Thrift Village in Glassboro, New Jersey. I am a frequent shopper there but last month I found my most treasured find, a floral print late 60's dress complete with pointed molded cups (something I seek out) for only 7 dollars! I do notice when I wear anything with molded cups I tend to puff my chest up a bit more, this is not a look for the meek! Does anyone else carry themselves differently when they wear something with molded cups or a built in "bullet bra"?
I could tell the dress was from the 60's based on the metal zipper and the union label. Also when I was at the register with the dress a customer walked by and remarked, "that's an old school looking dress"... Good, that's exactly the look I was going for! The dress label indicates that the dress was made in Canada and I wonder how it made the journey all the way to southern New Jersey. I have worn this dress at least once a week since I purchased it two months ago and it is such a well made piece. 
My Mom's friend Karen also gave me this fantastic handbag! She said no one in her family was using it and she said I could have it to put to use. That's what I do: Megan Steigerwalt, clothes rescuer.
