When I first tried this dress on at Living Threads Vintage I was blond, and while it was a lovely dress that ticked to many boxes, I wasn't feeling it. About a month later I went back and tried it on with darker locks and it seems that was the key, and I've worn it every chance I get since. It's 1950's Lanz, one of my very favorite labels, and made of wide wale corduroy, and I just LOVE what the 50's did with corduroy. 

The belt I've had for ages, it's elastic with little dancing figures on the front and sides. The back reads "Anita Pienovi School of Dance Arts" which was a dance school in Oregon, and it's the perfect finishing touch.
