The optical illusions dress

This is my newest find, a vintage Hawaiian ankle-length cotton dress.Made in Hawaii by Hilo Hattie. It is in excellent condition, like new. I call it the optical illusions dress because it makes me look thin.It has a flattering hourglass shape to it when its on.  IT MAKES ME LOOK THIN! I cannot stop singing its praises since this is no small feat. Did I mention it makes me look thin? Plus, hold onto your hats, it was only $5. Yes, $5. And it makes me look thin!! An anvil should drop out of the sky and onto my head any minute now.....
Plus I am undergoing a Joan Crawford style initiative to replace all of my hangars with old wooden ones or pretty padded ones. I pick these up at the estate auction whenever I can outbid someone on a batch of them.

  1. I have a few optical illusion dresses of my own, aren't they the best. I love looking in a mirror and going "How am I suddenly a size 6?" Great pattern, plus $5 total cost? A complete victory.
