May 23, 2009Thrifted Vintage Dress – Pierre Cardin Silk
So, I was at the Salvation Army the other day, when I found the most awesome vintage ram lamp, which was the subject of yesterday’s post. I thought that was enough of for my trip, so I was about to head out of the store, when I decided to take a swing through the dress section before I left.
While I was looking all all the rows of dresses, a little quilted sleeve caught my eye in passing. I tugged on it, and low and behold, an entire gray dress had been crammed into the rack. Not only that, it was 100% silk. Not only that, but it was vintage Pierre Cardin. Score!
Unfortunately and fortunately, this dress doesn’t fit me. But that is ok, because now my online shop will have a new item living there.
But I get to enjoy the dress now, which is good enough for me! It is really quite chic, and it has some great understated modern quilted detailing that I really love. Like the sleeves…
And the shoulders….
And the matching belt!
So pretty, don’t you think?
