window of opportunity

Why, hello lover.  I cannot tell you how much I LOVE this new-to-me vintage dress!  I especially love how this dress is probably older than me, but the Aztec-inspired print and midi length are completely relevant to current trends.  Just another reason to love vintage!

Can I just say thank jeebus that someone invented the elastic waistband.  Good golly, vintage dresses leave no room for a little wiggle.  In fact, I tried this dress on a few weeks ago and passed, because it was just way too snug in the waistband.  I couldn't pass it up completely, though, so asked Shelley to hold it for me.  Fast forward a couple of weeks, and I've managed to whittle off just enough to wear it and breath.  Hoorah!

I was so excited to see it fit that I literally wore it out of the store.  This dress will definitely have to live in a small window of opportunity, though.  You know, that 2 weeks a month that you're not bloated and haven't eaten anything salty?  It's a small window, but worth every second.
