This is a special dress to me. It holds a lot of memories. I bought it at a vintage clothing store in Portland, OR in 1999. I remember it was $70. That was a little pricey for me at the time for something “special occasion” but I fell in love with it. Back then, my job required me to spend most weekend nights in Seattle nightclubs, and I knew I could get a lot of use out of it.
I wore this dress to a Christmas party once with my Dad and styled it formally with sheer tights and a black court shoe but this is how I would style it to wear out to a nightclub; slightly more edgy with patterned tights and some kind of ankle or knee-high boot.
Putting this dress on again got me reminiscing about a fun time in my life. I’ll never get rid of it so it’s time to make some new memories.
