This 1950's silk dress must be rather lucky because the evening I wore it turned out to be unexpectedly amazing. I won't say how but I will say that I've had a dumb grin on my face for days. My style has been all over the place lately, prim and proper like a 1950's schoolteacher one day and sassily short 1960's garb the next (with the occasional sparkly 1970's gown thrown in just for fun). I love bits and pieces from every era so it's hard for me to avoid being a hodgepodge of many styles. I was destined to be an eclectic magpie since the day I was allowed to dress myself... let's just say that hot pink bike shorts, an armful of plastic bracelets and mismatched polka dots were involved.
