You have GOT to go take a look at this splatter-print 50s dress that is up at Holly's new Lucite Box Vintage site. For one thing, it's a hard-to-find size: B40-W32-H44. For another, it's cotton. In addition: it has pockets! (Plus it's only $75!) And the print ... I love that print.
This would be a great dress to wear to a wedding (as a guest) -- throw a little cardigan over it, and you're set to go to anything from a noon wedding outdoors (add big white sunglasses) to something cocktail-y (add rhinestone jewelry or serious shoes).
I love these sheath-y dresses with the interesting necklines; they're sexy without being OVERTLY so. This dress shows no cleavage, eschews transparency, and isn't split up to THERE, but it's still sexy ... without needing thong underwear. When did we start thinking that a mere cumulative total of exposed skin was enough? It isn't.
But don't stay here listening to my grousing -- anyway, I've got to go yell at some kid to get offa my lawn -- go take a look and decide for yourself ...
