Speakeasy!



Omigosh! You guys!! Look at this dress I found in the sale section at Warehouse when I was in Glasgow this week! Its awesomeness simply cannot be denied! Thirty five pounds. Yup.




I know it's hard to tell with light in the photo, but those are rhinestones, baby! Thing is, this is the kind of dress that you are not going to get to wear all that often when you live in the Highlands, so better that it costs you thirty-five pounds than seven hundred and thirty five.  But make no mistake.....I will wear this. I'll wear it anywhere a cocktail dress is appropriate.

I love that it is gray, and really complements the salt and pepper streaks in this funny old bird's hair. It's loose and comfy, which is as good for doing the Charleston (as above) as it is for making a quick getaway when some stool-pigeon calls the coppers and you have to quickly toss-back your sidecar and make a quick getaway out the back exit into the alley.








Dress: Warehouse
Shoes: Enzo Angiolini
Headpiece: my own (from my wedding)

Highland Fashionista is happy to participate in Not Dead Yet Style's Visible Monday!

    I'm kidding, of course, but that dress is everything I love pulled together into one garment. Lucky, crafty you to have gotten it for a steal!

  12. What a GREAT Dress! Looks like it was made for you, and how much fun does that little dress have in its future because of you?
    You're near Glasgow. We have turn-of-the-20th-century photos and old letters from my dad's great-uncles, mailed from Glasgow and with an Innis Ferry photographer's stamp on the back of the pic.
    I understand you were in Seattle in the 90's. That's where I graduated from art school, and did a year of my masters at UW in the late 80s. We left in 95.
    Tiny world.

  14. Hi Kristin,

    Wow - that dress is fantastic! What a fabulous find. I love your hair clip accessory - just the right amount of bling not to distract from how gorgeous the dress is.
