Its about time I add one of my historical clothing posts. This is a dress from 1957, and since its one of the only historical time periods that goes now days (besides the 80s and 90s which do not appeal to me), I tend to go retro a lot. This dress was my Christmas dress in 2010.
Though the slip gives it the classic fullness of the fifties, its a bit too much for now days ): So in public I wear it without the slip. But really, I like it just about the same either way.
