Beverly the Riveter

I hope everyone had an enjoyable Independence Day :) Here's what I wore to the fireworks show. 

Ryan says I look like Rosie the Riveter when wearing this dress, hence the title of this post. 

I found this dress at the new thrift store across the street from our apartment. $5! Since it's a new store, they haven't got too much to look at, but I'm sure that with time the place will be full of gems. I hope! I actually cut off 10 inches from the hem of this dress, and it's a little roomy on top, but that's ok with me.





Sorry that the quality of these photos aren't the best. I suppose that I should have taken these earlier in the day. The firework photos will be up later today.

  1. very patriotic, in a classy vintage way :) I can't believe you got that for $5, and I really like the way it turned out (I'm trying to picture it 10 inches longer-- I'd say you definitely made the right choice!)
