OOTD: Polka Throwback
Does anyone know what is the signature look for the 80s? I googled and was horrified by the big bad hair and outfits so bad that it's good.
Or maybe I should just simply stop using ABBA as a reference.
I have this Dinner & Dance night coming up in 2 weeks and I have no clue what to wear! Part of me just want to wear my ASOS goodies that I procured during the sales but it will be fun to dress up too. If you have any ideas of what I could wear to an 80s party, let me know via comments!
And talking about the ASOS
sales, I have been a very bad girl (always) and impulsively adding things to the cart. I actually bought both colours of the ASOS CURVE Embellished Scalloped Hem One Shoulder Dress
and also a ton of the other one-shouldered dresses and I don't even like showing my arms because unlike CurvyGirlChic
who looks amazing
bare-armed, I have a condition called "Keratosis Pilaris" which is like acne on the arms and I feel incredibly self-conscious which brings me to the set of outfit pictures today. The ASOS Curve Tie Waisted Dress
shows arms and I had to cover them up due to my insecurity.Verdict for the ASOS Curve Tie Waisted Dress:
It is made of a much heavier material than I expected. The first thing I thought when I lifted up the dress was how heavy it was. It has its pros and cons. It is made of a very durable, solid cotton material but that also means that it is a trifle warm to be worn for hot, humid weather but would be perfect if anyone cares to layer this for the cooler seasons. This dress ran true to size and I was attracted by how much it seems like a serviceable frock in its simplicity. The one thing I didn't pay attention to when I was buying was the odd waist hem design as shown in picture 5 above. Did you notice how the waist hems didn't match? I thought it was a flaw initially and was getting all ready to email ASOS for help but then luckily, I took a close look at the item
again and it appeared to be by design. I certainly don't know what the purpose is but I just found it very strange.
