What I Wore to Work :: The Demise of Alice

This is my Alice dress. Alice in Wonderland that is. That is, until Sunday. I had decided to wear this frock to work Sunday, which happened to be the day of the Vintage Garage. Bad decision indeed. Why I thought it was necessary to wear a thin Nylon dress to load vintage in and out of a building and my car still baffles me. Sadly this dress is now in much need of repair. And not simple, "oh I busted a seam" repair. More like a giant tear at the shoulder and the waist tie belt is no longer attached. Now I only have these photos as a memory of its late beauty.


Adorable right? *sigh*

Awww, it was so pretty, too! I know that 'riiiip' sound all too well, sadly.

I've lamely not been able to hit any of the vintage shows so far this spring/summer due to other plans. Argh!

Oh no, it was such a pretty dress in person too! I've sadly had many dress and coat casualties over the years, just comes with wearing vintage every day. I'm sure your seamstress can work some magic. :)
