I have been doing extremely well shopping thrift stores lately. Just when I think that every treasure has been picked over and found, I come across fun items like this Mike Benet dress at Goodwill for $12.
It is in outstanding condition considering it is most likely from the 60's. I did find out that the company started in the early 60's but some people have mistaken the dresses for 1950's formal dresses.
The sequin work is gorgeous and although I had never heard of Benet dresses before, I'm now hooked. I found a pink one on Ebay that I would buy in a heartbeat if it wasn't $200. It's hard to go from $12-$200!
So the great news is that old houses are still being cleaned out, collector's downsize at times and the sellers of antique/vintage items retire from the business.
My BCBGirls pumps look perfect with the dress since they are a yellow with a hint of sparkle.
