(Outfit: 1940s dress; Edwardian corset cover; Stetson hat; unseen Stetson cowboy boots)
Here's a quick outfit post taken back home the other weekend. I have since sewn a hook-and-eye inside the dress bodice to close up the opening, as it's clearly pretty awkward having another shirt on underneath. It looks a lot better now, so I tacked an "after" picture at the end, but I like these pictures anyway 'cause we have the best wallpaper in our house!
I'm madly in love with this dress; it's perfectly 40s (rayon? check. shoulder pads? check. beautiful pleating too subtle to show up on film? check.) I've been wearing this guy like twice a week since I got it a month ago-- it's just too easy and perfect. I also feel obligated to mention it was a whopping $9.99 at my favorite antiques store. Seriously one of my best bargains ever!
I love this song so so much; old country-western and early/proto punk bands are my favorite kinds of music, and this 80s/90s L.A. band was like the best of both genres.
ET VOILA! Dress as it is meant to be.
