This is the perfect vintage style dress for summer parties
This dress is the greatest thrift store find I have found in quite a while. Because it's twirly! Everybody needs to wear a twirly dress every once in a while. All I really did to change this dress was to take off the collar and take in the sides of the top and the skirt.
