Among a few other things, this dress was one of the vintage goodies I obtained in New Orleans.  I saw this on the rack and swiped it on a whim, in the process of grabbing many many other things.  It’s not the style (if I have a style) I normally go for, but it fit like a glove and I’m kind of digging the delicate, Victorian feel.  It’s also beyond comfy.  May or may not have rocked it like PJs on the plane ride home…
