Come as you are. Not.
This dress has been waiting in my wardrobe for some time. I fell in garment love, but knew right off the bat there weren't going to be many occasions to wear something quite this formal. I resolved to keep it aside for next year's Glastonbury festival, but then the team build I recently attended called for "formal evening attire" and as much as I dread team builds, that part I was actually looking forward to.
I didn't get to take photos on the day, so I re-wore the whole lot a few days later, after all: How could I not show you?!
The big bow on the back is what drew me to this fifties number by John T. Shayne & Co Chicago in the first place. The dress is in such fantastic condition, I wonder if I was the first to actually take it for a spin.
I actually took a few rather passable shots with my bike, but the above looked too funny not to share. How ladylike am I mounting my ride? ;)
Well, it's back in the wardrobe for now, waiting for another formal occasion I cannot escape. If it says formal on the tin you can bet your ass I am not attending of my own volition, but at least getting to wear this pretty again will sweeten the deal :)
So, tell me about the gems at the back of your wardrobe waiting for a suitable occasion to come out :)
