After teasing for two weeks (?) I finally got some good light. Still have a crappy old camera, though.
I’d say it was an 80s – label is Sail Away. Shoulder pads. And the sequins are all hand sewn. Bad photo, but here’s a shot:
At the neckline and cuffs, bugle beads are sewn for a nice touch. Here’s a closeup:
Oh, the necklace? You noticed? Got it at the same Hospice thrift shop. I had to have it – so 70s, don’t you think? Or Mariah Carey in Glitter. Let’s not go there. I’m loving it.
So there you have it! The dress was $15, and I’d say it was worth it. I just need to find a place to wear it. I don’t have any plans to resell it as of yet, and really don’t want to. I’d rather keep it for me, because we all need a little black dress, and the only one I have now is also a vintage piece – a 50s Italian wool dress. With my figure, I’m doomed to be a separates girl, so finding a dress that fits is a luxury.
Got a lot to do before the show this Saturday, and then it’s off for vacation next Wed. Can’t wait! I’ll post before then, but I hope to make some blog changes in the new year. More on that later!
