We were raised on finding quality things at a bargain and the value of buying secondhand as a guiltless shopping experience. It taught us how to really look at the “bones” of a garment and hone-in on the good stuff.
There have been MANY over the years. I found a vintage Evan Piccone evening dress at Goodwill when I lived in Seattle. It was perfect in every way; a long black column with a split, and a fitted bodice. The thing fit me so well I wore it for years when I worked on cruise ships. It was my go-to formal night uniform, and it cost me $10.
