Pink Ampersand Black

pink ampersand black

I feel a little bit weird wearing the platinum blonde + black + hot pink combination, but I'm hoping it's more along the lines of sleek and strange than Anna Nicole, haha.

pink & black
Without the cardigan.

Wearing:
• Black 'Avocado' cardigan.
• 1950's pink organza prom dress with pleated shelf bust. I picked it up for $10 on eBay a year or two ago, and, horrifyingly, I have never worn it!!! Until now!
• Black American Apparel lamé leggings in 'black eel'.
• Black 'Scooter' shoe boots.

Shoe and legging detail, co-starring my bedroom light fixture:

I'm continually fascinated (and jealous!) at how you manage to acquire so many 1950s prom dresses! :-)

rischa - it's a definite addiction!! :)

ambika - thank you! i'm so glad you think so - i'd much rather look modern than dated, which is easy to do when you wear vintage dresses as much as i do!
