I fell in love with this flapper inspired dress a few months ago at H&M. But the $50 price tag was out of my range. Just before Christmas I popped in again for a last minute present and saw this beauty marked down to $15! I wore it for Christmas and New Years, it’s a more interesting option than the typical sequined, bodycon dress. The slang “attagirl,” meaning well done, originated in the flapper era. Even though the dress is a little oversized (I could only find a medium) it’s sheer underneath the fringe which gives it a little unexpected sex appeal. I found these vintage pumps at a thrift store and have been dying for a special occasion to wear them. Even though the style looks great with casual clothes, they shine most with an elegant, retro ensemble like this one.Sometimes I twist and shout in the secret back hallways at the MFA. Everyone needs a stress reliever!
