A retro dress is not really my thing. Although I always find retro clothing very attractive to look at. It’s just not a style that fits me. But during my hunt, yes I am hunting now, for a nice pre worn dress, I came across this retro dress. I saw it all for me. Long green cardigan, already hanging in my closet, to wear over it. High boots underneath. Great outfit. Not so. When I had it on, I felt not happy at all. Not at all myself. It’s crazy. Sometimes you can picture a outfit in your head, then you have it on, and it does not work at all. So how could this dress work for me?
I am not the type for retro look dresses
What is wrong with this dress, I thought. In principle nothing of course. It is a beautiful dress, good quality, nice print, etc. But it is just too short for me. It only is to short a few inches, but I think that always makes the difference. A few inches longer and it would have been better.
Also I already know that the lighter color in the dress( call it beige, off-white or whatever) does not do my face any good. And I think that this style just does not suit me. I am not the type for it. But does that mean I will not wear the dress? No, because I like the dress, I just don’t know how I can wear it best. That is why I made several outfits for this post to hear which ones you think suits me best. Or perhaps the outcome is that this dress is better of in someone else’s closet! That’s a possibility too.
