Do you see my vintage suitcases there? I love them, but they are currently the nicest thing in my living room, lol. They are a Craigslist score, so I don't think they count as thrifted.

I bought this dress from The Urban Jungle in Bushwick, Brooklyn. Its tag says it's made by JJ Dean of California. Here it is before:

Not bad, but it ain't great. I also snapped a halfway point pic which compares short sleeves to sleeveless. I'm glad I got rid of them all together. One shouldn't try to look like a frigid librarian or British boarding school mistress, lol. I didn't expect to like this so much! I may have to remake it in a better fabric. One that won't make me sweat to death!
