My obsession for the 50's and 60's does not stop me from sporting pieces from the 70's, they happen to be dresses since I have a weakness for dresses.
I wore the tangerine gown to a mock prom my sister threw. She prefers to be a homebody (just like me!!!) so we celebrate all her major dances at home so she doesn't feel left out. I really don't blame her, school functions, especially prom aren't the highlight of your teenage years. They're dumb and not worth the money you pay for them. Proms were always a major disappointment! I never understood why anyone would buy an expensive gown to dry hump to horrible music on the dance floor, eat bland catering hall food and then call it a night! I got this tangerine prom gown at the Goodwill in Glassboro in April (The cape is separate from the dress). For our prom we made personal pizzas with toppings that we chose and then danced in the living room to all the music we liked. It was a lot of fun!
I've always had a love for 70's fashion. When I was in 5th grade I was obsessed with ABBA which kick started my love for the 70's. I made my Mom feather my hair each morning before I went to school. I made a whole ton of friends this way.

So I'm asking you my dear readers. What thoughts go through your mind when dressing? Do you just not feel right when you're not dressed as the person you see yourself to be?
