Things I Pay Attention To

Green and blue brocade vintage dresses on etsy.

Currently at 50-odd items. Very few doubles.

I started paying attention to this fabric in dress form because I liked Allison the Secretary’s dress from Mad Men season 4.

Oh, Don. Smh.

Anyway, I’ve been on the lookout for green and blue brocade ever since (well, except this year while I’ve been stash-busting. Have yet to find some except this, which I’m not a super fan of the pattern.

(Also, a dress in a VERY similar style and the exact same fabric as the one Kristen Wiig used to wear as Mindy Elise Grayson is available too.)

    OH yeah! I’ve had the same stills of this dress saved on my computer since that episode aired years ago. I love this dress!
