Fruity 40's

Hello there! Tonight Bob and I are going out with his friend and friend's wife for drinks, and tomorrow I'll be meeting a friend for lunch. Other than that, it'll be a pretty low key weekend for us (lots of Netflix, reading, working out, and cleaning for me), which I'm very much looking forward to!
In the pictures below I'm wearing my new to me vintage 1940's shirt dress! I got it from an Etsy vintage clothing shop, called Birthday Life Vintage. I had never ordered from that shop before, but I was very happy with my purchase, the speed of shipping, and the sweet little thank you card she enclosed. I just love purchasing from small businesses! This dress has the cutest fruit print on it! You KNOW I'm a sucker for fruit prints. The dress is made of cotton, and is quite comfy, and also fits very well, which made me so happy. There's not even any gaping with the buttons over my chest. It's so hard for me to find great vintage in a print I love that also fits me, so when I do, it's very exciting! Bonus if it's also a shirt dress! In addition, I was glad the neckline wasn't as high as the neckline on my other two vintage dresses. I think necklines like the one on this dress are more flattering on me, than super high necklines. 
Even though there's only a month left in summer (wahhhh!), I'll be definitely wearing this dress into fall! How could I not?? I have some fruit dresses with white backgrounds, that I probably won't wear into fall much, but I think it works better with the black background. Oh well, I do what I want anyway, when it comes to fashion!
