Ok - so this is it. The final dress for the 3-outfit Palm Springs (Frank Sinatra themed) event. Yes......I know it's 60's and not 50's, but it's EARLY 60's and seemed perfect for an after hours event. These are the 'before' photos as it is currently being altered for a better fit.
So...just to recap, I am wearing authentic VINTAGE clothing for all 3 events. Yes....I could have purchased brand new pieces, but it was more enjoyable to recycle existing pieces into something unique. To keep the look modern, 2 of the 3 dresses are being altered, and a mix of new and re-purposed accessories will keep the outfits interesting.
|Brande sent me an amazing hat to wear with it - similar to this one.|
|Extra short and sassy! |
I'll def wear black boy shorts underneath to keep from showing my bum on the dance floor. Actually I wanted to wear SILVER HOT PANTS, but Vintage Stylist/Consultant Brande (Victory Vintage) talked me gently off of the ledge . Thanks Brande. PS - I love your new vlog on accessories!
|CHERRY RED lipstick, pear/diamond earrings and a silver clutch complete the look. UPDATE on the RED DRESS: You spoke, and I listened. I'm sticking with the red dress, but am switching the shoes to a nude-platform-peep-toe pump, and lighter toned belt. (Pending Brande approval - of course). |
