I found this pretty blue dress hiding in the corner of an antique mall, sandwiched between polyester maxi dresses and oversized hawaiian shirts. I bought it without bothering to try it on because I knew at a glance it would fit perfectly, a skill honed from many years of flea market and thrift store scavenging (and sneakily trying things on both over and under my clothes). I've been making a point of going on an adventure outside of Philadelphia every other weekend, which usually involves a lot of antique stores, greasy burgers at even greasier diners, and people watching, a much-needed escape after an incredibly busy week. I keep bringing my camera with me but forgetting to take a single photo aside from a few Instagram snaps. I promise I'll be better next time, if I can stop oohing and ahhing long enough to press the damn shutter!

The outfit is very pretty. Reminds me of an illustration from a little girl's book.

Is that bag real? If so I don't like it at all.
