Know Why I Like Vintage Dresses?

Know why I like vintage dresses? Because for the most part, they have sleeves! It's that simple!

And the ones that don't have sleeves - like the sun dresses - they have straps and design that generally compliment a woman.

As a fat person, this is important. I just wish there were more vintage dresses out there for us big girls.


  1. That is why I wear vintage! It simply is the most flattering.
    Cute blog! We read 'Beth's Happy Day' book often, it is a favorite.

  2. Thanks for visiting! I've been lurking on your blog for about 4 or 5 months now - yours is the first vintage blog I discovered, although I don't recall how it happened. It might have been a homeschool thing. Though I don't homeschool, I have another blog that is quite popular out there in the Catholic world, and many homeschoolers read it. Go figure. I like how you integrate your family life into your blog and don't make it all a big "look at how fabulous" fest thing!

  3. Oh, I totally know what you mean. I have that "chicken wing" thing on my arms and am SO thankful for sleeves every day! haha!! I just got a new dress 2 weeks ago from a new friend. It's so cute but sadly sleeveless. I tried it on with a white blouse under it and it looks quite cute! I wanted to thank you so much for your comment on my blog. I just finished a post with Q&A for plus sized vintage and will post it tomorrow :) Thank you for the inspiration!
