The bodice needs to be taken in a little, due to my dearth of boobular mass, but I was too excited to wait! This dress is new (to me) from Aspen Tree Vintage, via their giveaway on Larkspur Shoppe. I was quite pleased to win, because I've entered about a thousand blogger giveaways with no prior results. (A couple days later I also won a basket of Pantene products on Goodwillista. Hmm.) I was even more delighted when the package arrived in the mail yesterday, especially since Jessica Niamath (the lady behind Aspen Tree Vintage) wrapped up my items like a present, using yellow cloth and a ribbon. I wish I had taken a picture of the charming presentation before tearing it apart.
I decided to do a chocolate eye (because "brown smoky" doesn't sound appealing) to match the fudge-colored clouds on this dress. I think the fabric pattern looks like a fusion of Willy Wonka and traditional Tibetan art, which is perfect.
