This polyester crepe-like dress was another .98 cents steal from Thrift World. No maker label, but it had the red, white, and blue Garment Workers label, so post 1976 anyway. If I had to make an educated guess, I'd put it no earlier than '77 and no later than '81. I had dresses like this in that time period. This would have been an inexpensive dress, but again, it is so better made than the expensive clothing you can buy today. I love black and brown together, and the pattern struck a chord somewhere in what's left of my brain-so home it came. It is quite sheer in the sun, so I'm wearing it with a half slip.

Matching shoes and handbag extreme gold edition! Gawd I love these gold shoes. They hurt like hell every time I wear them, and they are impossibly bright, but damn! Hot Damn those are some bright shoes. Gold shoes are a basic human right-it should be enshrined in the Constitution because people, if gold shoes aren't the, "Pursuit of happiness" then I don't know what is.
