I Finally, Finally, FINALLY found a Mexican embroidered dress!!!!

I have been looking for one of these for YEARS!!!

It was $2 at a yard sale.  I saw it in a pile, just a small glimpse, but I knew... I dug it out, and had to restrain myself from doing the happy dance right there in a stranger's garage!  And it goes all the way to the floor!  And I'm 5'9"!  It is in great shape.  A seam under the arm has come apart, but that is an easy fix.  The embroidery is near perfect.  Now where does one wear a Mexican embroidered dress in 45 degree weather?  I had planned on wearing a shorter version, if I ever found one, with jeans and boots.

I'm a happy girl....
