Traci Lords Inspired Dress

Added Feb 23, 2013

Melbourne, Austr...






After watching the film ‘Cry Baby’ it struck me that I totally needed to make a mash up of two of the dresses that Traci Lords wears in the flick.

Here’s what I came up with.

More on my blog, including the reactions of the general public:

    I know Melburnians have the reputation for being shy of wearing colour, but that doesn’t explain the negativity you got for this dress, which is fabulous. I can understand people maybe feeling they wouldn’t have the confidence to wear it themselves (that neckline is gloriously va-va-voom), but actually thinking it’s inappropriate? They’re clearly crazy!

    Gorgeous dress! I don’t get why people have a problem with it, you see girls out and about in much tighter, shorter, skimpier “dresses” on a daily basis! This is lovely.

    What a great dress. Too bad it got such poor reviews out of the house! Like Mary said, they must be jealous.
