This amazing 40s-esque dress was another fabulous find from the Goodwill in Salt Lake City. It was discovered on the same shopping trip as this dress and this dress. Clearly it was a fruitful venture. I’m crazy about that button detail going down the shoulder and the pleated puff sleeves. And how about those earrings!? They were actually part of my sister Charlotte’s bridal accessories. She calls them her wedding earwangles. Being a kook runs in the family.
Speaking of wedding jewelry, remember that cute boyfriend I mentioned a while back? He proposed Monday night. He took me to an antique shop down town and let me pick out my own wedding jewelry! I adore this vintage diamond ring, I hear babies laugh and angels sing every time I look at it. The guy who sold it to us said it was post WWII, so late 40s. It’s several sizes too big though, which means I have to give it back to be resized today when I get home from work. They said it would take about three weeks and I really hate that part. Still, someday I’ll be able to wear it proudly and know that I am engaged to be wed to my Zachary B. Heckert. I love him.
