I want this dress!

Do you ever cut out pictures from magazines, or print out pictures from the web, of clothes you want? I have an entire scrapbook of clothes I've loved and wanted. I usually couldn't just rush out and afford such things, so I let these pictures be an inspiration to me.

There is, however, one dress by Anna Sui that I simply have to have if ever I can find a way:

This was in Elle in the early 90s. The lower part of THE dress looks like early 40s, with a slightly flaring, knee-length skirt. One of these dresses slipped through my fingers on eBay, and I have yet to see another. Anna Sui, my heart belongs to thee!

I loved this pic too in the 90s! I actually took the mag to the salon for my prom makeup/hair look. I loved the 90s swing comeback looks! It's so great to see this again!

Yay! I'm so glad someone else loved this look!

I wrote this blog some time ago, and I still haven't found the dress again...sigh!
