It was love at first sight- the Heather dress by Steady Clothing caught my eye on the rack and I just loved the way it looked and fit when on. The Heather is a lovely bouncy swing dress- the base fabric has stretch in it, which has an overlay of polka dot chiffon. It is perfect without a crinoline, but ever so perfect with one. The fabric hangs beautifully on its own, but to give it the look of a 50’s prom dress, a crinoline is required.
I wore my Heather to work paired with vintage hair and a killer cat eye. I have been thinking lately how so many people dress down and how sad I think it is that people feel they need an occasion to get all dolled up. I love getting dressed up nice to go to work…or to go out to dinner or the park or wherever. A dress is as fancy as you make it and every day life is as fancy as you make it. I loved the Heather so much I couldn’t wait to wear it and I did just that- wear it the very next day after I bought it.
Steady Clothing is made in the U.S.A which means it is good quality so worth the price. You can get this beauty at Rowena in Edmonton or online at RetroGlam.com
I sized up in this dress to a large. I could have squeezed into a medium but I felt the large looked and felt good. My measurements are 36-29-40. The Heather has adjustable straps as well to help ensure a perfect fit at the shoulders and bust. The ruching along the bust/torso is very feminine, made complete with a white bow.
I imagine this dress being worn to parties, weddings, even a prom. This sweet swing dress is not one to pass by. While I have many dresses that cannot be worn just anywhere, this beauty will definitely get many wears to many different places.
