A little while ago I purchased this Tahari a cream lace dress at TJ Max.
It looks only a bit retro, but if fit so well I had to buy it. Nothing seems to fit these days. It also packs well, so I took it with me on my recent trip to the UK. I wore it to all three of my events, styled differently each time.
At 9 World with a black wrap shirt from Max studio, black pumps, typewriter key earrings, and a black velvet hat with my hair slicked back. My favorite look for this dress.
In Nottingham with the same shirt underneath the dress, a bow belt, same pumps, and a flower in my hair.
And for an evening look with a beaded sweater and a black jet tassel necklace with matched earrings.
I meant to wear it with leopard sandals at some point, inspired by the following image. But the weather never permitted it.

And here are a few more ways I may style this dress in future:
A Moment of Then & Now
|1903 The Metropolitan Museum of Art|
|1958 Jayne Mansfield in her wedding dress for her marriage to Mickey Hargitay, January 13, 1958 theniftyfifties tumblr|

Retro Rack is also on facebook where I post additional images and fashion thoughts.
