Outfit of the Day: The 80s Tropical Dress


I have mentioned in a previous post that I love the '80s does the 50s' styles, so I was excited to find the beauty I'm wearing from an ebay seller for $20. 


The dress is a size 9/10 and I needed to do some major altering in the chest/halter area which included putting in (as I call it) boob darts. I am pretty proud of the job I did, though not the cleanest application, the alternation was a learning experience. 


The bold print with the black background makes me happy, the cut of the dress is flattering and it has pockets! I wore a green metallic spider flower (made by my friend Julie Ann), black stretch belt, black filagree bat necklace and little comfy flats. 


I think I might have to wear this dress to the next Tiki gathering we go to, now which Tiki mug should be my drinking vessel? Hrmmmmm.....

Thank you for reading!

  1. It's so cool that you can look goth in a brightly colored tropical dress. :) You look amazing in it! And that hair-flower-thing is adorable.

  3. Love it! I have a weakness for any brightly colored prints on a black background. It's one way a goth can get away with a lot of color, especially in the summer. I like your friend's hair flower too; what a perfect match.

  8. I think I recall owning a dress like this in the 80s... ahh, it was such an odd time, outdone only by the early 90s.

  9. I think it's amazing how you can wear such a brightly coloured dress and still make the overall appearance of the outfit look very goth and spooky :) It makes me happy ^^
