In the pictures below I'm wearing a new Lindy Bop Gilda dress. I have one othe Gilda dress, and that one has a San Francisco print on it; I've done a post on it before. The Gilda is my favorite LB dress style. I find it has a better fit than other styles I've tried, and is more flattering. This print was first released in a different dress style, and while I love the print and colors in it, I passed on the other style. I'm glad I passed on it, and that they released the print in the Gilda. It was also on sale when I bought it, for only $25. I was disappointed when I received it though, because the zipper was broken. It had been sewn in incorrectly on on side of the dress, and made it impossible to zip all the way up. I contacted LB, and they refund half of what I spent, so I got $12.50 refunded. Bob fixed the zipper for me on the sewing machine, and now it zips!
But, the first time I tried it on with the functionining zipper, the the top two buttons popped right off. The dress came with one replacement button, which I sewed on. So, I'll be wearing it like I am in these pictures, with no top button on it. It's annoying that LB does not have the best quality. You get what you pay for, I suppose.
The almost neon/citrusy colors in the cocktail glasses in this print pair so well with my orange, yellow, & lime Bakelite.
Also in the pictures below is a picture of me wearing my new Trashy Diva ribbed rayon Fontaine coat that I scored for half off during their recent ribbed rayon sale, and a close up of the front of my hair last night. I lucked out with my hair! It's always random for me with my hair, ha, if I can get it to turn out decent or not when I'm styling it after it's been curled.
I LOVE my Fontaine coat. It's not very heavy, so it's not practical to wear when it's really cold out, but I think it's so gorgeous and flattering. Before getting the Fontaine, I had no vintage repro coats at all. I'm glad I now have one in my arsenal. It just buttons over my chest though, and when I first put it on, I wasn't sure if I'd be able to get it buttoned there.
