I just wrote about how much fun it's been to thumb through issues of Vogue from the 1980's. In keeping with that theme, I chose a dress that harkens back to that lively era.
This Leslie Fay dress was thrifted for a few dollars. I think I owned it in 1989 too! I took out the shoulder pads, although you can still see they were there. I do like the muted floral print and the slim, uncluttered lines of the dress.
I added just some black leggings, a studded belt and my Impo shooties, for a retro-but-not-costume look. I don't think I'll wear this dress much, but it was an enjoyable revival and I felt very Visible.

conservative black pumps. Boring!
