Why did I buy that dress? HIT or MISS?

Why did I buy that dress?  HIT or MISS?

I recently found this VITTADINI dress at a Thrift Store Outlet store for $1.75 and had the hardest time making a decision to buy it!

I was drawn to the vivid colors, detailed pattern and luxurious craftsmanship but it is a Very 80’s style dress.   Maybe I saw it in the 80’s, loved it but couldn’t afford it?    Did I see it on TV or a magazine?

OK, OK … I know, its only $1.75 yet I still don’t want to spend money on things I won’t wear.

Finally I made the decision to buy it, I just couldn’t leave it in the store!

Then I saw a picture I had pinned on Pinterest, from Atlantic/Pacific blog (one of my favorites!) and then I knew why I had bought this dress!   Here is the outfit that was my inspiration for the dress …   I LOVE it and will add a navy or red cardigan over the dress!
