strike a pose

When WAMC radio interviewed me a couple weeks ago, one of the questions they asked me was "Do you ever find a piece that you like so much you decide to keep it?"

(Actually, I said "All the time, all the time..")

This dress is one of those times. Acquired 3 weeks ago ($5!), it has that
perfect rayon crepe drape, awesome colors and some crazy pre-mod mod pattern. I'm thinking late 40s -early 50s. The skirt has swags that form into pockets, with a big fabric-covered buttons--one just below the bustline and one just below the belly button. Killer.

And, it fits me like a glove.
