1982 Christmas

I was so excited when I found this ruffled dress at St Vincent de Paul. I couldn’t wait for an opportunity to wear it. I’ll be totally, inappropriately overdressed at tonight’s party, but I don’t care.

Dress, thrifted. Jacket, Odds ‘n Evens (thrifted). Tights, We Love Colors. Boots, Rampage. Studded choker (worn as a bracelet), thrifted.

I must say that if I had seen it on the rack, I would've made some snide 80s remark about it. But on you, it looks great! I suppose some things were made in the 80s that could only be worn in the 80s but this, I'd definitely call it 'vintage'. (Sigh, I can't believe a decade I remember living in is now 'vintage').

Dress. Is. Perfect. You can wear that ANYWHERE, what are you talking about? I'd wear that to sleep, even. I'd never take that off if I had it...

That is a VERY Sexy looking skirt! However, to be totally honest here, I think that if you paired it with jet-black sheer stocking or tights and high-heels, I think that it would look even more sexy!
