Item: Handmade Vintage Coral Dress
What I Paid: Gift
Background Story: A few years ago, 2012 to be exact, a reader shared the link to this dress as it was for sale on Etsy. I drooled over the dress, pinned it to my pinterest board, and started saving my money for the dress. Fast forward to May of that year when I finally had the money to purchase the dress, I discovered that, to my horror, that the dress had SOLD only the day BEFORE. I was heart broken. Fast forward again to July 5th, my birthday, when I was opening my presents. My sisters, Gabrielle & Hanne-col were super excited for me to open up my present from them, and to my surprise it was THIS dress! The one I had been saving my money for & was heartbroken for when I had discovered that it sold the day before I went to buy it.
