As fate would have it, I found this lovely thing on 50% off day (the typical Sunday discount at estate sales).
Fearing it would look silly on me, I deliberated for a while about the dress before a sweet lady shoo-ed me into the bathroom to try it on.
It fit like a glove except for being a little loose in the bust. Unlikely that I'll fill that out anytime soon, but it may be alterable.
If nothing else, it sure is pretty to look at. Do you think the sequins and beads are done by hand? Amazing, either way.
