I bought this dress from an op-shop when I was at uni (about 1994/5) for $40. $40 was a lot of money for me at that stage and I tried to bargain them down but they stuck to their price and I simply couldn't leave it behind so I bought it. Unfortunately it's never fit me. You can't see in this photo that it's waaaay too tight around my bottom (the only reason I can get it on is that the zipper is broken) and the top is too big (I'm holding it back with my hands). So it sits in my wardrobe where I can admire it every now and then and imagine where I'd wear it if I could :)
BTW, if you know anything about the brand "The Compass Rose" could you let me know? Ta.
