Description

❥LBD? Yes, but I’m in ❤ with the rest of it, it’s definitely LBD ✚ something…

I feel like an archaeologist who once he/she discovered something, tries his/her best to describe it… The shape is the result of many things that happened before and while it started coming into shape [let’s skip that!]

Some characteristics and things you may also like about it ☟:

  • The discreetly shiny floral pattern that comes to life in both artificial and natural light
  • The front back symmetry of double buttons posted asymmetrically towards one side
  • The skirt is a wrap-bubble-tulip skirt with 3 pleats on each front half
  • To put it on, you take it on your back like a coat and button up the 6 front unisex buttons- a little androgyny indulging also femininity and mystery
  • The sleeves complete the design and harmonise with the skirt – they bubble up their 4 pleats counting on the fact that their inner lining being a lil shorter will fluff them to life;)
  • Of course, shoulder pads, so eighties – freshly homemade – I will tell you all about it soon!

Well, I’m convinced – a comfortable dress imbued with pride of the past and the present that I will enjoy wearing in the future;) Both serious and playful, a smart way to dress for a party or formal events. What’s next? I will spice it up and show you some alternatives which make it even more interesting to wear… will be continued ;)

    Realllllly cool. This ‘twist on the LBD’ (as cliche as that is… yeesh) is great! Very daring of you to go 80’s instead of an obvious 50’s mom dress. :)

      haha thanks!:) an LBD evolved into Mambo Mamba:)).. the 50’s part got me confused … is it leaning toward the 50’s on your side?:)

      no! Your dress is sophisticated 80’s/modern… I meant that for the decades challenge you went outside the box. :)

      thanks for explaining that, what a relief! 50’s mom dresses are not bad either:D, but I’m glad you like my decade interpretation!;)

    Wow, cool! I love the sleeves, and the pleated details. It’s very 80’s and very contemporary at the same time, well done!
