I can't decide if this dress is breaking my 'no new clothing in 2012' rule. It's not vintage and it seems to be new, however purchased from Buffalo Exchange, so I guess that makes it second hand (sort of)? Any case, breaking the rules feels right in this case. The sleeves make me feel more animated and the mini length has sent me hemming dresses. This dress also attended my first rock n roll show in the Bay area. Thanks, Big Drag!
