There is something about the clothes one wears that can transform a mood. I know I do not speak for everyone, but for me when I wear a pair of sweatpants and a t-shirt, I’m just blah.

So let me just say that today was AMAZING. I had the awesome experience in being driven around in a 1948 Dodge Fluid Drive, 3 speed.

I found the cutest clothes there, met great staff and even enjoyed a complimentary iced coffee (they were… Continue reading Vintage Tutti Frutti Dress
