The Sunday Snag – Spring Sweetheart

Spring is just around the corner and here is a dress I snagged this winter in anticipation!

I purchased this sheer abstract floral piece from Zwzzy and it is just darling. It's a 1950's like style (possibly 80's? Not sure.) with a high neckline, capped sleeves, and shell buttons. This is ideal for dancing! I can unbutton the top to wherever I feel comfortable and I can unbutton the bottom to create a front slit for my legs to move easily. Plus, it is sheer so I can wear a light slip underneath and not get so hot! After trying it on, I did decide to shorten the skirt as it was about 5" below my knee, but after the hem it is pretty perfect and ready for spring!

  1. That is really a cute and sweet dress! I actually always dream of living in the old age (1920s-50s) so I can experience wearing dresses all day! :)

  27. This dress is so, so wonderfully lovely. I adore 80s does mid-century frocks like this and my own wardrobe is liberally peppered with such pieces. They're sometimes more affordable, often in great shape, and you tend to be less worried about potentially damaging/staining them while wearing them than you do with real 40s or 50s pieces. Total win-win! :)

    1. Exactly! Couldn't have said it better! It is quite easier on the pocket book and I don't feel so unearthly bad for hemming it shorter either. ;-)
