From my shop

Last week I opened my little Etsy shop called Turquoise & Lime...yes, the same name as the blog. I tend to get attached to things like names. I promise the next thing I start won't be called Turquoise and Lime. Anyway, I am going to try and post something from my shop each week.

This week I am featuring a vintage plaid dress. I was vintage hunting when I found this dress. I must admit it wasn't the first thing that caught my eye, but once I gave it a few looks over I decided to get it. Not only was this dress very well made, but it is also comfy soft AND it has long sleeves. I don't know about you, but I have trouble finding dresses for the winter with long sleeves.

When I bought this dress it was about ankle length long (Yikes!) so I put some work into shortening it. It is actually short enough now that it could be worn with jeans, like a tunic top. In the picture I am wearing it with black tights and boots.

  1. Super cute! I will check it out. Was it a dress... or a nightgown?? :)

    1. It originally had shoulder pads in it, so I am assuming it was a dress. Some 80s lady may have been rocking shoulder pads in her nightgown though! :)
