Retro Rack is also on facebook where I post additional images and fashion thoughts.
I'm in love with the second piece, and I'm in awe of the third. It's interesting to look at, the way modern art is. If I'm honest with myself, though, I really dislike it. I don't see how they can call it a "dress", let alone something formal. There's so little substance to it. Perhaps it's just me, but I believe a dress should not be as translucent as Blake's is--even if it's that way because of a healthy dose of lace.ReplyDelete
