Revival Files: Pretty In Peplum

I never thought I'd say this but the eighties has it's hold on me. Its got a hold'a me real good. Peplums, orange lipstick, Fuchsia. I love it all. Raising the hem and altering the sleeves on this dress made a world of difference and now she's ready to be worn by someone that isn't afraid of a perm and some hot pink leggings. Wha'da ya say? She's in the shop if you're up for the challenge:)

  10. What a great re-style! I love how fashion is cyclical - makes reviving thrifted clothes easier, and justifies me hoarding all the clothes I don't wear anymore :)
