Happy Dotties | Vintage 1980s-does-1950s button down dress with Structured waist

79 SGD

The story:

Happy dots make us feel, well..... happy! 

These happy dots do, at least. We are simple folks that way ;) 

And of course a good 80s-does-50s wiggle silhouette makes us think of how things could be sexy yet happy and relaxed at the same time. Actually, sexy is relaxed is confident, isn't it? 

The double-breasted look on this goes all the way down from bust to hem and the buttons are entirely functional! 

Has a decorative tie-back at the back of the dress which you could totally unpick and tighten or loosen to your needs. 

Pinned?: No.
