So I thought I’d share my new favorite dress, which I happen to be wearing right now for New Year’s Eve festivities! It’s the Grace Dress from Laura Byrnes Black Label/Pinup Girl Clothing. Yes, I buy and wear a lot of Pinup Girl Clothing items. No, they aren’t paying me to pimp out their stuff. I just love their clothes!
Anyway, Grace features a well-constructed fitted bodice, a superfull circle skirt, and a really sumptuous red sateen fabric textured with a midcentury black flocked pattern. This one’s size xl, and it fits just right! More images after the jump…
I’m wearing it with my tea-length black crinoline from Malco Modes, trusty black suede/patent heels from Sofft, a black sequined sweater from Lane Bryant’s 2010 holiday collection, my 1950s-60s beaded Saks Fifth Avenue clutch, and some SWEET vintage jewelry! My 1950s rhinestone earclips are part of the vintage jewelry haul I inherited from my Great-Aunt Alice and my gorgeous midcentury rhinestone necklace is a Christmas gift from my mom.
Happy New Year! 😀
