I've told you before that I'm not a big thrifter. I think Goodwill smells weird and everything that's for sale there looks to me like it's from the '80s--not in a good way. But I do have to admit that I took one real shot at thrifting, and it went well.
Enter blue dress. It wasn't the prettiest thing I had ever laid eyes on, but I knew it had potential. The sleeves were huge and the skirt fell almost to the floor. But the lace was beautiful and that blue color was unlike anything else in my closet.
So, I got it and then promptly brought it to a seamstress. She and I knew there was a pretty dress in there somewhere.
