connect the dots

i've had this polka dot wrap dress in my closet for about a year now and i've only worn it once. i was quite self conscious the whole time because it's a tiny bit see through and i feared it looked kinda matronly. luckily i had a epiphany a couple of days ago and realized it was totally pin-up. i mean come on, polka dots and wrap dresses, it doesn't get any more retro than that. i finally decided to put it on today and treat myself to all things girly and glam. i'm imagining this is how dita von teese feels on a daily basis. first off, i knew i wanted to put on some white tight high stockings that always seem inappropriate for the casual outfits i wear, then i pulled out a vintage slip to wear under the dress (see through problem solved, plus the dress doesn't stick to my stockings anymore). i love the fact you can see a bit of the lace detail on the chest. pulled up my hair in a high bun, put on a pair of vintage earrings and i am ready to go. oh, and i also put on some mascara, which is kind of a big deal since i rarely wear any makeup.
