Vintage 1950s prom dress

I have a confession to make: in order to get my hands on this gorgeous dress, I committed a cardinal sin and broke my vow to never purchase items in ‘proper’ vintage shops. But I couldn’t resist its creamy sheen and gorgeous stitched detailing. So far, it’s had two outings: dinner at an Underground restaurant, where we were papped for Ms Marmite Lover’s blog, and The Blonde and the Beast Last Tuesday Society’s masked ball. Underneath, a layer of tulle puffs the skirt out and makes me feel like one of those miniature plastic ballerinas twirling on a circle of glass inside the lid of a girl’s jewellery box.

Found at: Blackout II, Endell Street, Covent Garden
Usability Factor: 5/5
Accessorise with: Big pearl drop earrings, peachy-coloured Venetian mask for evening.
