Carmen Marc Valvo
A black dress, probably made of satin. The neckline is round, with has black beads, the bottom part of the skirt has pleats. The dress is reminiscent of a flapper dress from the 1920s. It is to be worn at a party, maybe even a cocktail party. The original price tag is attached to the dress: $550.00. $129.00 is the sale price. What a luxury! Even at a thrift shop—a high end thrift shop—the dress in unattainable. She, the woman walking by the thrift shop, felt a sudden hunger to own it. Class. The black dress had class. She had never had anything like it. She was afraid she never would have such a dress.
