Here’s the perfect dress to pair up with those lipstick-red stilettos that I posted yesterday. Silver or gold leather sandals would work nicely, too. It’s made for dancing, with a skirt that is long enough to let you be versatile in your moves and swingy enough to follow your body and the music.
The material is a heavy synthetic jacquard print, which allows movement on the dance floor. It was made for Disco, but would also be great for Swing dancing. Back nylon zipper, elastic in the waist. Looks a lot like modern stuff – the tags, alone, told its age.
I would probably put on a rope, chain or skinny buckle belt because I like waist emphasis. If I’m dancing, it would have to be something that wouldn’t interfere. If I’m out to dinner, a party, movie or other event any kind of belt I liked would be fine.
Alas, this dress is a medium to largish size so won’t fit me unless I have it altered or do it myself (either is always an option). Anyway, it’s lovely and RED (a favorite of mine) and very versatile. It simply presented itself to me so, how could I refuse .. . . . . .. . . . . . .
