How to Wear Vintage Dresses

I read a few books of the time World War II this month (have you read, Bomb ? So good! Unbroken was also great, but it gave me terrible nightmares sharks.), So I ‘ ‘ve sort of been the era of the 1940s on the brain when I totally lucked out and found a vintage inspired dress at the thrift store. This logically led to a tear-filled display the laptop. I’m a total sucker for vintage dresses in movies and television shows. De La Grande Gatsb there for Mad Men, I rounded all kinds of inspiration vintage fashion and 8 online shops where you can find the dress of your dreams vintage.
