Day 27

More vintage. More girly poof. More ohmygodican'tbreathewhyisthiswaistsotiny.... Yeah. This one is a fantastic cocktail dress in black and white (obv). The waist area is black velvet, the rest is a ridiculous amount of gathered tulle. What was it with designers in the 50's and tulle. Half the dresses I have from then are tulle frothing concoctions...like a ver stiff and sheer merangue pie.

So because this is dress is totally my "ballet dress" (I blame Rodin, I grew up with this statue in the house....) I paired it with my simpleset of ballet flats.
