Gail Carriegr Wears a Grey Ruffled 1930s Evening Dress at Phoenix 2018
Most of the evening dresses I brought with me to Phoenix did not require proper foundation garments (although they look better with corsetry, of course, everything does). Turns out I likely would have been OK, as inside the convention center in Phoenix it wasn't really hot at all.
I wore this in the evening so the photos are kinda dark. I've wore this dress before but this is the first time with the silver belt and I REALLY like it so much better with the belt.
Somehow it looks more ruffly and vintage with the belt. (Yes they did wear belts like this at the time, and no this dress isn't vintage.)
Silver Turban: $7 (I love both the metallic and the waffle style from these people)
Silver shrug: Consignment shop, similar $16
Silver Belt: elastic, comes with a gold version for $12
Grey/gray not-vintage 1930s ruffle gown: Consignment shop
Silver flat sandals: Aerosoles, no longer available, similar
Jewelry (likely going to give this set away to the Chirrup soon, the earring are too long for me).
I'm wearing my new bright pink lippy with this dress and I don't like with the grey. I'm going back to the wine for this pallet.
Retro Rack is also on facebook where I post additional images and fashion thoughts.
