1980's Secretary

It was love at first sight when I saw this dress. I actually picked this dress up from the local Value Village in Phoenix (not the chain thrift store) for $3.99. Others doubted it and said that is one hideous dress. I saw hope in it. I took my diamond in the rough to Mama Kathy. She had many roles. She was my pastor, babysitter, and my seamstress.  She cut almost 2 feet off the bottom of the dress so that it would hit my knees. I also wanted to take the big white buttons off and replace them with black ones. She told me to leave the buttons alone. It came to be one of my best looks. So, here it goes.





 
Okay, here I am just being silly.
