Vintage black dress/Didn't need a thing...

Tanya and I love being able to hunt together, and though lately we both have such opposing schedules that it's become a bit of a challenge, we finally managed to get in a "girls day" of thrift store shopping as a team. And did it ever feed our souls!

As luck would have it, we each found something pretty exceptional. Tanya pulled a boxy, 80's leopard dress which we made over, (seen here). I found a one of a kind, black vintage cocktail number that didn't need a single tweak, alteration or button. It was perfection!

Stuffed into a rounder about to burst, I found it hiding amid a sea of polyester.

 It came home with me, along with a few other tasty numbers we'll be featuring in the very near future...

With a few key accessories it was ready for a night out. The boat neck-line was very clean so we added some gold bling to make it pop.

 Some bangles and a pair of bronze chandelier earrings...
 An amazing, vintage leather belt...
...And of course, killer gladiator sandal/heels, via Mr. Charles David.
