Meet #29! This dress was another thrifting score on my trip to the local charity shop this weekend. It's new (tags on!), crazy comfy, completely wrinkle resistant, and inspired Mr. Man to dub me "Pretty Lady," so I'd say it's a keeper. It's even got sweet gold studs on the shoulders - perfection.
I felt like such a '60s London mod in this outfit. The flats, the bright legs, and even the trench had me feeling like I'd just walked out of Blow-Up. Of course, for the effect to be complete, the dress really shouldn't nip in at the waist and I should be wearing approximately 67 times more eyeliner, but I still felt the reference was there, however faintly. I am sure it was thoroughly appreciated by the other visitors to the dinosaur hall at the Natural History Museum.
(And speaking of, did you know they have a full-sized animatronic T-Rex there? It roars at you.... and that's about it. I mean, it was awesome, don't get me wrong, but I have to say, it felt a little too theme-parky for a museum. Like an awful lot of space and resources devoted to... getting roared at. Hmmph.)
