Early last month, during the All Vintage Everything sale, I spotted this darling Girl Scout troop leader dress from the 50s on the racks of a fellow vendor and knew I had to very carefully squeeze myself into it and make it mine. I've been trying to incorporate more classic pieces in my wardrobe and have been searching for a vintage scout uniforms for years, it seems. If searching for vintage has taught me one thing it's that patience pays off. Finding that certain specific thing that you have your heart set on for so long feels pretty great. The title of this post came from a fun joke between friends on the night that I bought it, and that feels pretty great, too.
