What i've currently deemed to be "The Perfect Spring Dress", is going to be open for bidding on eBay in about 10 hrs. (seller: mynoble), and since its measurements won't suit my curvaceousness, i'm urging you to win it, and wear it with Bakelite bangles. It reminds me of Diane Wiest's fabulous vintage wardrobe in Hannah and Her Sisters, though she would've worn it with a '50s varsity jacket, a beret, and cowboy boots (see Diane below, in that great film, wearing an adorable '30s sailor top over a little denim jacket, accessorized with a beret, polka dot handkerchief, and '60s beads):
And here are some more of my "dream Spring wardrobe" looks:
