Thanks to this post from Kjrsten, I decided to hit the town with my boys and see what I could find as far as vintage dresses. I did not leave disappointed! My boys did pretty good, but by the time I got to this dress shop they were fed up. Luckily the shop owner entertained them while I rushed to try these dresses on. I got the gingham dress for $10 after bartering down with the owner. It is from the 1930's and has some great touches, such as the sleeves. It needs a couple of new buttons (I might end up replacing all of them), and it has a small tear by one of the buttons which is an easy fix. I want to get a petticoat slip to wear underneath, and I'll pair it with a black belt or sash.
L'Aiglon dress from the 1950's, and is in perfect condition. I got it for $24, which I have found is a great deal after looking at other L'Aiglon dresses on eBay and Etsy. This is my last week of nursing my baby since he turns 1 on Saturday, and I cannot wait to be done and be able to wear a dress just like this. I could write an entire post about how excited I am to be done nursing. I'm not quite sure yet how I'm going to do it, but this is the week, so wish me luck! I'm also hoping I lose some weight and fit better into this dress!
