The Big One

I apologize for posting so late today!  We drove from Birmingham to Nashville (and then back again) yesterday, and I'm beat!  It was a lot of fun though.  I believe now would be a great time for a cup of coffee and some anime to help get me going.

Anyways, I've been holding out on this post for a little while.  I got this dress several months ago and just hung it up with all my other dresses that I put in my Etsy shop.  I thought it was cute, but it wasn't any different from any other dress I got.  That is, until I was taking of the price tags from all of the items I was listing.

That's right people.  This is a genuine Missoni dress.  Not a Missoni for Target, but an actual freakin Missoni dress.  I though I was going to die when I took that price tag off.  BTW, I paid under $2.00 for this dress.  It's worth around $800.00.  I don't know why someone in Alabaster, Alabama had Missoni, or why they donated it, but I'm a super happy camper!
Even though it's pretty exciting to own a piece of clothing like this, I'm going to put it up on my Etsy shop soon.  In kind of makes me a little nervous to even have it in my house.  I'm also a little sad that this may be the biggest (monetarily speaking) find that I ever make!  I guess I just have to keep looking!
