Wear Ye Polyester While Ye May

I got this dress a while ago, but it’s one of those quintessential 70’s thick polyester dresses (I think my mom has one with the exact same texture), and the weather has been too warm for it. Thankfully it’s cold and rainy today so I got one last chance to bring out the polyester before summer hits.

Also, doesn’t the print on the dress remind you of Tron? Or Pac-Man?

Dress: vintage via Thread Echoes, Cardigan: Forever21 (dyed by me)
Shoes: Madden Girl (thrifted), Necklace: Icing

    I love the green dress! And the color combination! And the print reminds me of Tetris. It’s so fun and quirky! I love the locket. (or is it a watch?)

    By itself, I think I would be “meh” about this dress BUT what you have done to pare down “the green thumb” is spectacular!

    I love your green dress and to combine it with purple is a great idea! As I already own several green dresses I have to go and buy a dyeing kit!

  9. […] jacket. Do you guys have any suggestion how I could style the dress? I’ve only worn it once, here. I’d like to save it from being a closet orphan, but I can’t think of any time to wear […]

  10. […] I first started the blog, I might try bright, even eye-searing combinations like red and green, teal and purple, or yellow and fuchsia (ye gods!) but now, my combinations are a little more pleasant, if I do say […]
