lovely in lavender


The trouble with some vintage is the smell. I had to have this fifties prom dress cleaned no less that seven times before it let go of its 'lost in the back of ancient grandmothers wardrobe for fifty years' smell. At least I can wear it now without Sonny mentioning lavender and mothballs!

I've had the worst time with moth balls! The trick is just leaving it outside to have it air out! I swear, no soap, bubble, or chemical will do the trick quite like a day or two in the fresh air!
