When I saw this amazing white and gold patio dress set on sale at Fab Gabs this summer I immediately loved it. It reminded me of sparkling Christmas lights, golden tinsel and of something else I love, Star Trek dress uniforms:
I think its the gold trim. I snagged it up thinking it might have to be a summer dress, as its cotton and patio or squaw dresses where traditionally meant for serving drinks on the patio. I was still dreaming of it how nice and glitzy it was for the Holidays. Its been unseasonably warm so I decided to take the plunge and wear it:
It might be the most out there thing I've ever worn and even with my experience of outrageous outfits I felt a little self conscious, like a white and gold Christmas tree, but it was such a fun outfit. I got a few odd stares but ignored them. Im very shy and when I was younger I would have been much too afraid to dress like this, but as I get older I realized who cares!
I accessorized my dress with gold remix vintage shoes, a thrifted lucite purse, atomic earrings from the alamo basement, cats eye sunglasses and a white and gold hair flower from Chatter Blossom.
I didn't stay very long at the event because the friend I was with wanted to leave but the music was nice and it was prettily decorated. It kind of reminded me of Dancing on The Edge, a miniseries I really enjoyed.
Im hoping to go back next year, but in the meantime I plan to wear this again. Life is too short not to have fun!
