Vintage Mcqueen! given to me by my lovely friend Nadia.
Fashion history - Yes! Wearable - not so sure??
I would describe this dress as Victoriana, meets goth punk, meets bordello with a pretty edge.
These are not words i would use to describe myself!
So herein lies the dilemma - me - huge lover of fashion owning a piece of fashion history
(I could seriously see this dress in the V&A) (i did see it is beige in French Vogue - what higher accolade could it have) and i dont know if i can wear it???
It is on Dolly because it is too big for me and needs a tailor, so before i cut into - i face the dilemma of styling and will i wear it?!
Herein is my shoutout - what would you do with it - would you stick on a pair of spotty tights, Mcqueen armadillos and go all out or would you dress down and if so how??
I have put together a few ideas - which is seriously sad cos i have the day off and the sun is shining and i am playing with dolly, an old dress and some shoes!! xxx
Dress in its unadulterated form
Dress for want of a more literate description 'hoiked'
How high would you go? Front, back - endless permutations?? The decisions!
Cardi, Boots, Statement ring ??
Big Jumper, Statement Shoe and Seriously McQueen Clutch?!?
All items courtesy of my wardrobe over the years - Alaia boots and shoes serious bargain - i dont think anyone else could walk in them and if ever you see me at 2 in the morning you would wonder if i can?? That is also true of me at 7 in the evening in these!! xx
