cocktail dress – [kok-teyl dres] – NOUN – A smart dress suitable for formal occasions.
Admiring my vast collection of vintage cocktail attire is one of my favourite guilty pleasures in life. I have a delightful dress for nearly any event that might crop up…but until the glamorous invites start pouring in I’m satisfied to simply play dress-up, enjoy the feel of the funky fabrics & marvel at the workmanship of these fabulous frocks from the past.
Here’s five of my faves:
Vintage Dresses (inherited or thrifted & refashioned) €4 – Tights (1982) €5 – Clutches (all inherited) €0 – Shoes & Boots (thrifted or ebayed years ago) €12
Total cost for ALL outfits: €21
