My Daughters Vintage Prom Dress

We have gone back and forth on the whole dress ordeal for my daughter and I just felt I didn’t have the knowledge or time to put into a dress like she wanted. So a few weeks back we found a used one and we were excited about it, but it needed some work, even though my daughter liked it, it wasn’t what she really wanted. We had looked for a vintage dress and never found one that suited her, until this past weekend. We were at the coast for a few days and a friend had told me about this cute vintage shop down there. When we finally found the shop and made our way into the store the first thing to catch our eye was this mint green vintage 50’s dress. It was so cute. I expected it to be a few hundred dollars but to our surprise it was only $50. We looked around the shop a bit and we kept being drawn back to the dress, so my daughter finally said, “Im going to try it on”. And it fit perfectly! She walked out of the store with her new prom dress!
