(Outfit details: 1950s black wool dress, 1940s lace collar, antique sash, Vigoss oxfords)
Meet my new roommate; I found her hanging forlornly in a big cold antiques warehouse on the outskirts of town. When I saw her $5.00 price tag and remembered how bare my dorm's walls are, I knew she had to come home with me. Isn't she elegant?
Oh, and my outfit... after watching both this weekend, I felt like dressing a bit like a 1940s film noir dame. I wish I could say I looked like a femme fatale, but I seem unable to escape my role as an ingenue ;) I love this dress so much; it's solid black, which is something I don't usually go for (I'm crazy about patterns!) but it's surprisingly fun to have something so simple, so I can accessorize it however I like. I guess I can now appreciate the appeal of the Little Black Dress. Also, it's a soft wool, making it very cozy.
