Why? Because there are some days when I want to keep many-a vintage things I find. Or all of them.
But, I don't have the room. Don't have the time. Nor the place to wear them.
And much like Vanna White, I only wear my dresses once.
Okay. So that last reason is completely not true. But, the vintage dresses I tend to find (or want) are always dressy -- which makes them that "one-time-only" kind of dresses.
Take this holiday dress. I fit both it and I have no place to wear them.
Going to Starbucks in them could happen. But, to say I was overdressed would be such a gross understatement.
Barista: "Wow, that dress is awesome. Where are you going?"
Me: "I have to return some socks to Target."
Such a disappointing scenario.
So, what's a girl to do?
For me, I take pics to sell the dress at my shop on Etsy (which is awesome on so many levels) and then post a pic on Instagram, which is kind of like saying, "See, I really did have this awesome dress that I never got to wear out. Now. Anyone of out there want to buy it?"
Essentially, most --if not all -- of my needs are met through this arrangement.Works out well.
It's a wonderful life, people. I have first-world problems that aren't problems in the least. Thanks for humoring me as you read through this.
Happy holidays and Merry Christmas!
