2nd Time Around ~ Oscar de la Renta!

Diane at a Picture is Worth a 1,000 Words is the hostess of this weekly event. It’s been a while since I’ve played, not since I’ve shopped 2nd hand mind you but since I posted about my thrift store shopping excursions. While I was at my home in Washington State last week I found this dress that I knew my daughter would love. It was pricey for what I usually spend at Goodwill but I thought that if it fit her it would be a steal at $19.97!

Here are some close-ups of some of the detail. The dress is 100% Silk. The trim on the skirt is feathers, Pheasant Feathers. The pleating and stitching is beautifully done. It fits my daughter perfectly.

My daughter went to the Oscar de la Renta website and found similar dresses to this (none exact) that were selling for $3900-$4600!

She is now antsy for an occasion to wear it to!

Photobucket is holding all my photos that I stored on their site from 2007-2015 hostage replacing them with ugly grey and black boxes and asking for a large ransom to retrieve them. It is a slow process to go through all my posts deleting the ugly boxes.

Facebook came up with these photos in my memories and I’m happy to be able to put them back in this post. The only photo that is missing is the closeup of the feathers.
