choosing my galentine.


Last weekend, I had the lovely pleasure of rubbing shoulders with the beautiful Brooke White--she was wearing this dress and I was gushing with envy, sure that it was a magical vintage 1970s thrift store score. She was pleased with my keenness toward 1970s duds, and called me her soul sister, but informed me that she had actually got it from Lulu*s! Within minutes, it was in my cart and a week later, on my back porch. It is heaven, and paired with these gorgeous Seychelles from my favorite gals at PB&J, I was feeling groovy, and just myself. I love how there are just some outfits that feel like you, this was one of those. 

So, what I'm saying is that I'm going to ask all the fine ladies mentioned above to be my Galentine this February, because they treat me so right, and I love them so!

Ok I DESPERATELY want this dress. However- can we talk about the sizing? I'm pretty sure anyone with a 38" bust and a 26" waist would just topple over. How is the fit??
