Of course, I dressed up:
I stuck out like a sore thumb, and I'm sure I intimated the hell out of the rest of the attendees. Ha!
I found this dress in a thrift shop last week - it was around $25 (it came with a little bolero jacket, but it has no shape and I probably won't wear it). I love it. The colour is mossy green and matches my eyes - the pattern is a rusty brown. I love the shape of the neckline and the little bow at the waist. This is definitely from the 50s (metal zipper, style, overall quality).
Added the Fluevogs to give it a modern twist, the hat for the kooky factor, and some bold jewelry just for fun.
The stuff (with nice detail of the waist of the dress and the fabric):
These two bracelets were really heavy worn together! The ring is new - it's Guess and I found it on clearance at the Bay for $5! Score!
