MrB, of course, was crazy about this short, tight Herve Leger bandage dress.
I’m so not crazy about it that I only wear it as a layering piece.
I view this beaded, ’20s-style dress much more favorably.
Finding a vintage navy slip to wear under the sheer dress took me a couple of years, so I first wore the dress in 2009. (I had Jean of Ghost Tailor hem the slip to match the asymmetrical hem of the dress.) Here’s a more recent photo.
My boa and pearls in the 2013 photo were actually party favors from the ’20s-themed event I attended that night. I think they look quite good, considering they started the night as table decorations!
