Vintage Dress

I purchased this dress from Christina's etsy shop late last fall. I love both the skirt and the drape of the top. I didn't want to wear it over the winter b/c I didn't want to cover the beautiful draping, but I finally caved in February, because I really just wanted to wear the dress.

Today is the first time I've worn it without a sweater over top and heavy tights and boots underneath. You can see the great pleated skirt AND the nice drape of the top and sleeves. What a great spring item!
