I must admit I was wary of this dress when I first saw it… the light colour, the tight fit- I was certain it would be a disaster. But it wasnt! In fact, the Dames dress in mint is quite dreamy.
The Dames dress is made of Pinup Girls signature bengaline, so it hugs and molds to the body in all the best ways. This cut is so classic and oh so pinup…it is a blank canvas, making it an absolute staple. Add some killer heels and sparkly jewelry and off to the ball with you! Add a shrug and come cute ballerina flats and you’re ready for a day at the office or strolling around town.
I sized up to a large in the Dames dress. My measurements, to compare, are 36-29-40. I might have been able to squeeze into a medium, but in this colour and cut, I don’t think that would be advisable.
I got this Dames dress at Rowena. This dress can also be found on RetroGlam.com, along with the black and red one if you’d like something a bit more traditional. If you think you can’t pull the Dames dress off, you are wrong, just like I was. The moment I put it on, I knew I had to have it. I do not own anything in this colour or anything this light even, so there was no question about it, it would be mine.
The colour of this dress makes me think of milkshakes, ponies, carnivals, and cotton candy. It is both sweet and sultry. And I think it suites my Flamingo tattoo quite nicely 😉
I am head over heels in love with the Dames dress!
