Goodwill - 1950s Inspired Charlotte Russe Dress

Charlotte Russe dress - $2.79 Goodwill

Happy Monday y'all!  Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend.  This morning I'm sharing my latest Goodwill find - this 1950s inspired Charlotte Russe dress.  I've developed an interest in 1950s fashions as of late.  So I had to pick up this dress!  It is a peachy/melon colored check fabric with striped belted waist.

A close up of the sweetheart neckline with puffy cap sleeves.  A strand of faux pearls to complete the 50s look!

Dave and I haven't done much yard saling lately.  I think the season is slowing down here as everyone gets ready to send the kids back to school.  A couple yard sale buys worth sharing:     

Dark blue Gadzooks corduroy jacket - $2

And these pretty decorative pieces.  Dave thinks they have absolutely no purpose at all.  But lying around looking pretty is purpose enough for me!  I paid $1 a piece for my shiny baubles :)

Thanks for stopping by!
