Mad about Plaid Dress

Added Oct 1, 2010

Portland, Oregon...






One of my best friends got married last Saturday and I need something that was fun, sassy and perfect for evening. I wanted simple with a rock-n-roll edge. This boat neck shift looks pretty simple and sweet from the front, but as soon as I turned around, BAM, you’re hit with the sassy! Open back that closes with a vintage button and metal zippered sleeves turn this simple plaid frock into a night-time dancing machine! Oh, and did I mention it was short? Double BAM. I wore this with opaque black tights and platform booties. I just wish I had more events to wear this to…

Material Notes

Vintage gold buttons. Gold metal Zippers. Taffeta.
