Ribbon Rabbit

May 6th, 2011

These pictures are a little overdue, because I wore this little number on Easter. I just fell head over heels (almost literally) when I first saw the red bow on the back. I knew I had to take it home. It came with the puffy sleeves and a funky 80s pattern. The dress is just a tad tight on me, so I kept getting creases all over it whenever I moved. Ironing is a pain, so I’m just going to have to make creases a trend.

These photos are epileptic. I edited these all in one sitting even though it seems like I didn’t. I couldn’t bring myself to decide on one style, so I just put all of these up. Why not? It is a colorful outfit after all.

I have one last final exam to take this weekend, then I’m off to my summer break! Hello undivided work attention… you’re no fun.

What I Wore: DIY bow clip (paper mache) – vintage dress – Chanel shoes

    What a cute dress, Rachel! I vowed never to wear 80′s clothes, I’m sort of taking that back now with some of the stuff I’ve been wearing! BUT…I WILL NEVER wear SHOULDER PADS! YUCK! Plus, I’d look like a football player anyways with shoulder pads, I have pretty wide shoulders as it is.

    ahh how did you deal with that slit going up the back!?? I had a slit on a skirt once (didn’t know it was going to be on it when I ordered it) and I felt so uncomfortable in it and sold it right away because of it. You rock 80s clothes a lot. It’s cute. you look beautiful as always.

    I love the shape of this with the peplum and the way it accentuates an hourglass silhouette. So feminine.

    [...] really quite creative—probably a good Etsy idea? I wore one of them in my hair in one of my older outfit posts. This time, I attached a safety pin to the back of the bow so I could pin it on my shirt like a bow [...]
