Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day and Ms. Home-front Has a Great Ebay Day

One of my favourite films in the world for divine fashion (and actually a great soundtrack---click HERE and HERE for my favourite musical moments in the film) is Miss Pettigrew Lives For a Day. Well, when I saw this 1930s dress up for auction on Ebay, I knew I had to try to get it and....I DID. More importantly, I did so without having to shell out hundreds of dollars. In fact, I am still in shock that I got a mint dress like this, with such incredible details for $65! Excuse me as I go swoon now. I got a few other things, but will save these for future posts.
