Tea towel dress
This dress reminds me of a tea towel, just the print, not the feel.
Surprisingly it is from Sportsgirl, now Sportsgirl has gone the way of TopShop in that it has a section that gets some bad 70's/80's dresses chops them up so they look even worse then sells them for a ridiculous amount of money to the young teenager who has no idea of vintage or has never been to a 'vintage shop/market/fair', or even entered an Op shop.
But you know, I take a peek in there occasionally just to see if by chance they have anything. During their recent sale I managed to pick up this heavily discounted dress.
Who would have thought I would be wearing almost head to toe Sportsgirl at my age? These shoes were also on sale a while ago.
So it proves to not be a snob about where you buy your clothes and find the best bargains you can find. And especially in these tunabake times.
