The Vintage Winter Queen

Instead of hitting the usual malls and typical boutiques for your upcoming formals, balls, and dances we want to encourage you to explore your local thrifts for your one of a kind gown. Not only is it cost efficient for your wallet, but it also guarantees a unique dress that won't be seen on anyone else but you. The obvious mishap when doing this search is that the dresses you encounter may not be just right when it comes to particular areas of your body. In this case, don't give up hope. Take to your nearest seamstress to make the dress perfect. The amount of money you spend on hemming the dress will still be minimal in comparison to what you'd be paying at boutiques. And plus....you'll be the lone dame at the ball with a rare and exclusive piece. Fabulous. ;)
