Friday Fabulous Finds-Yellow Drop of Georgous

Hello Soulmates

While out garage sale'n I came across this gorgeous dress. Ladies, my heart started pumping, palms started sweating I tell ya. I just about died when I saw this dress. An older gentleman approach me and said it was the very first dress that he ever purchased for his wife. "It is still my favorite dress." he said. It did have a price tag which is very normal when you are at a garage sale. When I asked how much, his wife said, "how about 1 dollar?" "SOLD!" I yelled! Oh my Lord, I couldn't get my money out fast enough.  I couldn't wait to get home to do research on the designer Leo Narducci. While researching I cam across a blogger who also found a Leo Narducci dress at her friend's consignment shop. She posted the picture of this dress
and Leo Narducci the man himself replied to her post.OMG OMG OMG! I hope he does the same to me and maybe he will follow me too. HELLO Mr. Narducci! He is also on Facebook and you already know I am going to friend request him. Without further a do, here is THE dress.
she fits me like a glove

Mr. Narducci this dress is amazing, the satin detail on the bottom and inside the hood of the dress is what I call perfection. This dress is Yellow Drop of Gorgeous it perfectly shows off a the shape of the woman. Its sexy in every way. This is another reason why I love love love vintage clothing.  I honestly feel designers back then were highly aware of the structure of the woman's body and made sure that their designs highlighted and accentuated our curves.

Yellow faux alligator vintage handbag. 

I picked up this bag at a thrift store sometime ago. I almost didn't purchase it because it reeked of cigarette smoke-YUCK! I was able to get rid of the smell by letting it air out for long while, I wiped it down with bleach and water, and then I put fabric softener inside and left it inside for several weeks.
