It's not every day a girl finds a unicorn. Since I first started collecting vintage, a 1940s novelty print rayon dress has been pretty high up there on my wishlist. You can find one, it seems, in any color, shape, size, or theme... if you're willing to spend enough money. And therein lay the problem: I am not willing to spend that much money! So the hunt was on.
Years of intermittent Etsy searching later, I took the plunge on this beautiful dress! It was priced a bit on the low side for some minor "as-is" issues, like a little shoulder fade and a nearly-invisible patch on the skirt. But the print was to die for and the measurements looked spot-on so I took the plunge. In person, the flaws are minimal and the print is wonderful (I'm not a brown person generally, but paired with everything else it's lovely) and it juuuuust fits. I love it. So naturally I took a million photos.
