I know, funny expression and my feet are cut off. But you can pretty much see the outfit. This dress is not vintage but it travels great, is a kind of stiff thick stretch material that really holds a girl in place, which I love.

So off came the cute sweater and out popped the Rack. (Yes that's a business card tucked in there. It's totally automatic. I never have pockets but I always have cleavage so I tend to carry things in that most convenient place, as it were.) Isn't Adam's suit divine? Can you see the patterned piping? Absolutely chic.
Sad to be so hot, because I thought the accessories were super cute. The cardy is cashmere vintage, being unable to wear wool I have a terrible weakness for cashmere. (I actually resisted this sweater for it was $80, but then I kept thinking about it so I went back and bought it. I've not regretted it and I wear it all the time.) The red octopus necklace was a gift from a reader and the earrings are part of a set I picked up at It's a Wrap in LA.

And we can't neglect the boys.
You see? It is possible. How handsome they look!
Hugos are always fun because some people, at least, really dress up. I could people watch this night of nights forever. It makes me so happy to see everyone all swanky and sparkly.
Retro Rack is also on facebook where I post additional images and fashion thoughts.
You aren't alone! I too, use my cleavage as an extra pocket when I haven't got a bag handy.ReplyDelete
Also: RED OCTOPUS! So cute!
You look fantastic, especially in red. Everyone else looks wonderful too!ReplyDelete
You look stunning in that dress! I have to admit that I use my natural pockets as well, especially when I'm wearing a corset. The Rack has to be useful for something!ReplyDelete
I love the cardigan. I too, cannot wear wool directly against my skin. It does create a problem in finding suitable cardigans that I can wear. Sigh.ReplyDelete
