This was a little holiday party dress tribute based on and dedicated to the awesomeness of Boy George.
Sort of hard to get into the blogging spirit since it has been such a depressing few days. Everyone I know is just emotionally crushed and heartbroken over the innocent lives lost at the school in Newton. So I figured something utterly silly would be best.
The cranberry red dress is a velvet 60s number that is a bit short and tight, especially since I've put on so much weight! I can never get it to photograph well, but the color is gorgeous in person. The tights are the ones I mentioned in this post here. You will be seeing them lots ;). The gold dress is a vintage one that is now available for sale here. The green dress is an Ali Ro I bought on clearance retail years ago for about $20. The material is a sort of thick starchy muslim-y type with a metallic sheen that doesn't really come across with my bad camera and photography. The structure of the dress and big bow makes me feel like a present. And my husband loves this odd little number of a dress. I have another Ali Ro that I bought the same day (hey, who can resist $20 party dresses!!) that is much more typically sexy... Maybe there will be pics of that in the future.
Here are all the fun patterned pantyhose:
Candy Cane Stripes
Sheer Black Diamonds
Now, to head over to Patti's Visible Monday to be inspired by all the stylin' ladies :)
