This dress totally reminds me of Betty Draper from Mad Men....
...except I've never seen Mad Men and I have no clue who Betty Draper actually is. Please don't shun me...
When I first put this dress on, it was a touch chilly and a blazer could have been a wise idea. But I knew I would be inside and the day would warm up... never mind, I actually just didn't want to cover up the sleeve detail with a blazer. No one puts baby in a corner and no one puts great drapey business sleevage (a technical term, really... though spell check says no) in a blazer. Last year I foolishly debated cutting this dress shorter... so glad that never happened. I love this dress. Love it. Even though the lining is cut super high and tight under my arms and I can't move freely. Vintage dresses always have high arm holes, I guess they never considered that a beefcake with pipes would be wearing this dress in the future. Yes, I'm the beefcake... better recognize.
