Yesterday I received the parcel containing this frock.
I needed a formal outfit for a work dinner and I was not keen to spend a lot of money as it is not something that would be worn regularly. So, I decided to look on Gumtree (an online classifieds site) and found this advertised for $20. After a couple of phone calls and text messages to the seller, I decided to buy it. The total cost for the dress plus postage was $28. I am now the proud owner of a fully-lined, Australian-made evening frock in perfect condition. It fits me perfectly – even the length is exactly what I need.
This photo shows the front bodice in more detail.
And the back……
I have black patent leather heels and a black bolero but I feel that the black is not the best with the deep blue so I may look at silver as another option.
What about a white shawl/wrap because it would be a shame to hide the lovely detailing on the top.
Yes, I certainly want to be able to see the detailing if possible but the event is in June (winter here) so I will need to consider warmth.
What a gorgeous dress!
Thank you, Kathryn. I am rather pleased with my find.
