Thrift Score Thursday: Liz Edition

A Funky Flashback in 1970s Polyester
One Dress, Three Ways: Fake Vest Edition II

As I scurried into the office the other day (I was running late), I noticed this sitting in my chair.

Oooooh! Mysterious!
Oooooh! Mysterious!

My first, completely nonsensical thought was, “I’m late, and now I’ve been replaced by a box.”

Fortunately, cardboard boxes make lousy digital marketing strategists, and even worse writers, so I’m pleased to report my job was secure.

The box was left there for me from my coworker and talented copywriter,  . She had just finished helping her grandmother sort through her closets, pulling out what probably wouldn’t be worn again, and choosing which pieces she’d like to add to her own wardrobe.

There were a few pieces she decided to pass over, but told her grandmother (Liz) about her coworker who kind of has a thing for vintage clothing.

BEHOLD!
BEHOLD!

You are looking at an amazing collection of 1970’s dresses that I cannot wait to wear! They’re all in immaculate condition, and look to have been quite pricey back in the day.

Here’s a closer look at my favorites.

I hate to play favorites, but....

So, technically these aren’t thrift scores in the sense that they came from a thrift shop, but what could possibly be thriftier than a free collection of beautiful frocks?

I feel so honored that this collection was entrusted to me. Be looking for these lovelies in future posts!

And a special THANK YOU to Alexdra’s grandmother, Liz! You have amazing taste in fashion. :)
