Karine | Vintage 1980s-does-1940s Sexy Black Emerald green Bodycon Batwing dress
Party in the 80s like it were the 40s? The 80s did rehashes of the 40s and 50s in some fun (and sometimes exaggerated) ways, we think.
This has the sex-appeal of the 80s but in a covered up way and silhouette of the 40s - looser on the top and form-fitting at the bottom. We love the funky feel of the black and emerald green wavy stripes and how it could totally enhance the bust-area *ahem ;) for a fun and actually quite elegant look!
We imagine pushing the sleeves up on this, and putting on those gold bangles, big dangling earrings, red lips and BIG big hair! Oh and velvet black platform heels too.
You go girl! *Phweet!
