Light Pink Sleeveless Tuxedo Dress

pink tuxedo dress

dress VINTAGE available in my etsy store (similar style in black with bow), necklace VINTAGE, quilted bag ZARA (similar), shoes LOUBOUTIN, watch MICHAEL KORS

I love menswear inspired pieces– especially tuxedo dresses (I had my mom make me one while I was living in London, will do a post on that beauty next week). When I saw this dress it was love at first site, the mens inspiration paired with the baby pink  perfectly draped material. Sadly it is about two sizes too large and is pinned on me. I could have it tailored, but I’ve decided to post it in my etsy shop incase anyone else loves it and can actually wear it as is– I have a whole pile of clothes to be tailored already! It is a size 4. Finally got to wear my gorgeous Loubs (special thank you to my bf for getting me these gorgeous shoes!!), so glad I waited on these as I feel they’re the perfect shade of nude for my skin– ladies, finding the right “nude” is key to pulling off the nude shoe trend. It can be tricky and frustrating, but finding the perfect match looks so much better than being a couple shades off.

I love quilted bags, I suppose you could say it’s a bit of the “Chanel effect” that has trickled down to mass retailers. These bags have been popular for decades and seem to have real staying power. I have several colors and love the little bit of texture that it brings to a look.

    What a great vintage find! It looks like something you could find in Neiman Marcus right now 🙂

      I completely agree! Has sort of a Haute Hippie vibe to me.
