|This dress has pretty much sat in my closet for the past... oh, two years. I bought it when I was a little bit bigger, wore it to the christening of my second son. Loved it when I bought it; its so kind to my figure. But, then I lost some weight, and I thought that it would never see the light of day again. Taking a closer look at it, I realised that it had a lot of elasticised ruching across the back panel, and since it had a sash and could be tied as tight as I could want, I thought I would give it another try. It totally worked. And I still think that it is so kind to my figure. It has the most incredible gathering at the bust (really a 50s kind of thing). The straps are set a bit too wide now, and I wonder if I can get it tailored. Either way, I can't bring myself to Value Village this dress.
Paired with the cardi, the shoes and the earrings, I think it has a real 50s housewife kinda vibe. Which I totally dig! If I didn't struggle so much with winged eyeliner, I would have rocked that along with it, for full effect!
On me: Dress (AdditionElle, 2+ years ago); Cardi (Kersh via Costco); Shoes (Aldo) Necklace (Swarovski); Earrings (Betsey Johnson via ebay)
