And It's Gold! - DAY 30

Well it's actually more than 30 days since I made my pledge to Stop Buying More Shit! so I feel in an extra-celebratory Friday-mood.
I've decided a golden treat is in order for us all.
I can't resist a bit of a ruffle.

You may have seen this 1980s Studibaker Hawk dress hanging out in the background in some my kitchen outfit posts, where the dress has a permanent home with its lovely little sister that I featured on Day 8 of my pledge.
SH's 80s party dresses are pretty hard to come by these days and I pounced on this golden number at my local Aid for the Blind thrift store a couple of years ago on a half=price day.
Which meant shelling out just $20! *swoon*
Almost every female who enters my house leaps upon it and starts making strange gurgling noises;).
So I thought all you lovelies out there might like to start your weekend on a top note with some party dress-ups.
Enjoy your weekend and tell a friend you love them. xoxo

I heart it,and I want it at once if not sooner.
All these weeks I have seen it hanging in the back groung, but now,that you are wearing it, is really in all its splendor.
To say that I love it is an understatement.
