I recently visited New Orleans for a little weekend getaway and of course, I had to look around for vintage shops while I was there.  So in between walking the French Quarter, eating way too many beignets at Cafe du Monde, and sampling the most popular jambalaya around town, I was on the hunt for hidden vintage gems. This was one of those finds that I was shocked by.  It was tucked away at an unassuming clothing store that had a vintage section on the second floor. The sparkle and texture of the gown is amazing.  It's completely covered in metallic silver threading and has 5 small rhinestones attached to the front of the collar and waistband.  It's so unique!  Check it out in the shop today!
