You would have to be XS to carry that off.
love it! i definitely couldn’t pull it off – but i can covet right along with you!
Gorgeous dress. And I’m pretty much that pale in real life, too! Too bad I’m long past my prom years.
Wonder what that rear pouffe would look like after sitting on it for two hours through dinner. Also, the 8o’s were all about using yards and yard and *yards* of fabric for everything.
the prom dresses of my era are now considered vintage?
i am old.
Actually, you wouldn’t have to be skinny to pull off this style. The ruching hides all your natural bulges and makes them seem more fabric related. Please see, Mo’nique’s Oscar dress: http://extratv.warnerbros.com/images/monique.jpg
That is a great look. I had no taste in the 80’s. I was in these Gunne Sax (remember them) nightmares with puffed sleeves and Cinderella skirts. Once I had my hair curled and put in an asymmetrical updo. Why?!?
Oh my. No. And Mo’nique’s dress looked very David’s Bridal to me.
I think you should get it, you could totally rock that dress!
I like the front. The back? Not so much.
Um, yes please. Happens to be that one of my life list items is to buy a dirty martini, 3 olives, wearing a black cocktail dress in NYC in a hotel bar. Specific, I know. It’s a vision, really.
Oh, I’d love it. Except that my ass is big and I just don’t think having EXTRA material would help matters.
Although. Hold on. Maybe the tailfeather would HIDE my ass? If so, I’m in ;)
