I won’t bother you with the details of the search terms that led me to this daring 1960s or 1970s ‘After Six’ velour tuxedo on etsy. Sure, $88 seems a bit steep, but you’ll never need another tux. You could even be buried in this striking ensemble, virtually guaranteeing that your reanimated zombie corpse will pass for the living. Click on the images below to see the seller’s listing.
“Vintage Halston” may be my most favorite combination of words ever. In fact, if I were into role playing it would probably be my safe word. This week we found this rare 1970s Halston aubergine wool and silk caped gown from the label’s 1976 collection. Offered by jayparkinson on etsy. Click on the image below to see the listing.
I sense a dark cloud creeping in the distance. You feel it too, I know. That foreboding sense of doom is the end of summer, and thus, the beginning of the holiday party season.
So you’re going to need a new evening gown. Don’t even think about wearing that one from last year. It’s tired and you know it. Be adventurous. Wear some freaking color you Quaker; it’s winter not a funeral. Or if you do go with black, make sure there are interesting details like lace or beading. Don’t make the accessories do all the work. And have some fun, man. It’s just a dress.
