I was invited by an old friend to join him at his first Marine Corps Ball at the end of November. Today is the start of my search for the perfect dress....
He hinted that he wanted me to wear either Scarlett or Gold, for the colors of the Marine Corps....as much as I'd like to make that happen...gold will look horrible on my skin tone, and a Scarlett dress is proving difficult. I love to do the matchy match thing...and I have a few weeks leeway to find the perfect dress.
After browsing through Stop Staring, My Baby Jo, PinupGirl Clothing, Bettie Page, and countless other online retailers...nothing compares to the beauty and craftmanship of a vintage dress. I have a ton of options with a vintage dress...brocade, acetate, lace, rhinestones, sparkle, chiffon, long, short...but my favorite is that darn metal zipper. And you can't forget, NO ONE will be wearing the same thing! ;-)
I'm levitating towards a 1960s frock with chiffon. It might be the easiest to dance in one of those, we know I like to boogie down. All of these dresses were found on poshgirlvintage.com.
How do I become the best dressed gal there? This will be a fun contest to compete in! ;-)
