Awesome Recent Thrift Store Finds!

I scored these within the last two weeks. This much awesome in such a short time frame needs to be shared.

First, a brand new with the tags fancy shmancy dress.
I love the faux diamond and silver shoulder clasps. In person it's a deep plum.
It's some sort of stretchy knit with a gauzy over layer. It is a tiny bit loose (I've put it on twice now and only noted the zipper in the back after the last time I took it off.) but not loose enough to fiddle with. Fun story with this one? It was a bit pricey for a thrift store find.. even as a new dress. I hid it for two weeks and came back on a half off day. I look damned sexy in it too. (Modesty, I have it.)

Next, found the same day as the slinky purple dress.. Gothy lace over dress!
So goffy. It looks like something the lead singer of the Smashing Pumpkins once wore. The color is a dusty grape-purple.
This laces up the back, corset style and is gored to give an almost circular effect. It's also see through. The cashier said that she had one very similar as a wedding dress (only difference was hers was white) and hers was $250 to my $3. I will need some sort of liner unless I intend on showing off my bra set. I intend to cut off the sleeves and either make straps or more Victorian period-ish sleeves.
