This is an outfit I wore out on Thursday night, to see The Horrors (well, two of them) do a DJ set at a pub in the city. Their set was pretty good as they have great taste in music but the pace was a little lagging and slightly anti-climactic after the set the previous DJs had done, which was so much fun and included an interesting variety of artists like Nancy Sinatra, Bon Jovi and Coolio! This dress is very comfortable and perfect for dancing (though everything worn underneath wasn't quite so comfy, unfortunately) and not vintage so I feel I can be slightly more careless when wearing it.
Outfit details: hair flower - ?; vintage necklace etsy; 1940s style dress - made by mum; belt - gift; bracelet - op-shop; starry tights - Dangerfield; shoes - Rubi Shoes.
When I wrote that post about how I've been feeling the urge to change up my style a bit, lately, I wasn't just talking about branching out to entirely different modes of dress but to also incorporate little differences in my regular wardrobe. For instance, the tights (well, they were tights but a pair of scissors later they were stockings) would have been something I would have thought were neat but not worn because they weren't 'period accurate'.
But I love glitter and I love stars so I bought them and I think they work really well with this dress. I posted a picture to tumblr that shows off their starriness a bit better. (The title of this post is probably slightly misleading as the tights/stockings don't feature as much as it may indicate! But I keep singing 'starry, starry tights' to the tune of Vincent by Don McLean when I wear these.)
