Gingham, oh gingham, how do I love thee?/ You are for picnics and sunshine/ And dogs named Mitzy!
Haha! I crack myself up!
I found a gingham dress Poodles! Finally!
Alas, it is not that most desirable of dresses, the Trashy Diva Hopscotch, but it is VINTAGE! And it was budget-friendly!
Isn't it cute?? I brought my trusty measuring tape into a local vintage shop (Hot Couture!), and told the ever-so-friendly and adorable shop girl, that I was on a gingham quest.
Her reply, "I have just the thing!" She went into the back and pulled out a few dresses with my measurements, and this darling dress was among them!
It is the perfect length for my short stature, AND it twirls fabulously!
I love twirling, don't you? It is one of my favorite things about vintage 50's dresses.
I wore it this past Sunday out in my tiny blooming garden, and Mitzy approved wholeheartedly!
Oh lovely gingham/ You are such fun!/ Especially when twirling/ in the late Summer sun!
