****One Unexpected Turn****

On the hunt for....

Printed maxi wrap dresses...

And who wouldn't be.  They are:

  • Easy to wear
  • Flattering on all
  • dressy or decide
  • timeless
  • easily transitionable from season to season
I haven't been able to find any good ones in stores around me so I have taken the search online.  After a quick google search this ASOS option popped up...

Yeah, I know, its amazing.  I looked at the catwalk view of the dress...which by the way is an amazing tool more sites should offer I mean what better way to sell a piece than to show the way it flows much like designers do when they show their new collection, anywho.....and fell in love again but with a price tag of of $185.35 I will have to pass.

So I continued my search and went straight to the source of all things bargain....ebay. However as I was searching along my quest took a sharp turn to the left, a quick right and landed in a treasure chest.  Follow along.........

I just typed in Maxi Wrap Dress and left eBay do the rest.  First dress up for consideration was this emerald green number. I on the right path...yes

MVS Long Dark Green Jersey Wrap Maxi Dress

Vtg 70s Black Floral Wrap Maxi Dress

Unfortunately after 4 pages I was left with a ton of...nothing.  Most of the other possibles were just to much so I reduced my search to just maxi dress and decided to narrower it further to the vintage section and all of its 2,390 options

Vtg 80s Ivory Silk Feathers Avant Garde Maxi Dress

Vintage 70s 80s LANZ Floral Fitted Full Maxi Dress

This one is sheer...yay...but too big....sigh... If I were to have it taken in it would look amazing with a fitted black tank dress underneath
Vintage 80s Sheer Oversize Hippie Grunge Maxi Dress

So lovely!!
VTG 60s Floral Chiffon Flowing Maxi Dress

And then by about page 8 or 9 I came across seller vach22450 and my search stopped.  I didn't quite find the dress I was looking for but I found everything from vintage silver jewelry to amazing jumpsuits to 80s minis...

Absolutely adore the uniqueness of this dress...I'm so watching this one....

wooow love the jumpsuit and the rings.
The jumpsuit is amazing!!
And about the dentist, don't be scared, i'm sure it's gonna be fine.
I cried the first time, but that was of the shock of how much i had to get done and how much it was going to cost me.
I don't know how the dentist system really works in USA, but here in Denmark, you go to the dentist for free until you're 18 years old.
So i'm 19, going on 20 and need to pay it myself, my bill came to a total on 1060$.. But now i have to pay a certain amount every month, until it's paid off, because i can't afford to pay the total amount at one time.
LOL i'm not trying to scare you or anything like that, just letting you know.
It was 4 years since i did go last.
So i had 7 cavities and 1 teeth that i had to get yanked out lol.

Hope you survive hon;) I did
