The aesthetics of a stereotypical 1950’s home maker have been warped by notable alternative fashion brand Deadly Dames in this Haunted Housewife Dress, as ghoulish glamour is depicted by a faux wrap style top that creates a stunning plunging neckline that ends in a belted waist. From there the garment opens up into a full pleated retro style skirt, while details such as angled French cuffs held together with custom skull cuff links and contrast piping really set off the sateen pattern.
Complete the outfit using the sidebar suggestions with sparkling red Bombshell Heels by Pinup Couture that have a curved heel, pointed toe and metallic finish that will make your feet feel like a race car, along with a red wool Vintage Style Beret designed to give a classic, European flair. The real stunner are the Gaspar Gloves for Laura Bynes, touted as “simply the most elegant gloves you’ll ever slip your hands into”. They are soft yet durable due to being constructed from rich kidskin leather that have a natural stretch for the best fit to serve you in all sorts of weather. Finally, capture the essence of that vintage purse you fell in love with and may have accidentally destroyed from using it so much with a Velvet Evening Bag. The body is firm without being too rigid though overall it is the ideal shape and size, a clam shell on the top for structure and a soft strap handle to make it a delight to carry.
Said to be a “miracle construction” and part of creator Micheline Pitt’s Fetish Folly Collection, the Kinky Ruffles Pencil Skirt is made from cotton sateen and fully lined in stretch charmeuse for comfort and structure. The wiggle skirt is accented by a mermaid tail of gussests in the back that show off every dramatic movement on the dance floor and the silhouette is complimented by the print.
Wear it with the Deadly Lace Top that will hug your curves in all of the right places by way of a banded waist, fitted bodice and elastic lace around the cuffs and neckline. It is long enough to tuck in or leave out depending on what you prefer and is made from a comfortable cotton knit. Get in touch with your ‘bad girl’ side with these rock’n’roll attitude infused Arena knee high boots that are part of the Funtasma collection by Pleaser. Both playful and powerful, the rounded body of the boot features six buckled straps that are sure to charm the masses. Add some color with red Retro Gloves, soft and stretchy for a great fit and detailed with black frog closures that gives the outfit a vintage touch. Carry luck with you wherever you go in the form of a Mini Gambler Tote Purse by Lux de Ville, a pristine patent black bag with tuck and rolls to mimic the interior of a classic car. Adorned with a detachable dice bauble that can also be used as a key chain, the purse features a custom company logo, red lining and matching dust bag, a wide flap closure with magnetic clasp and adjustable strap. End with a flourish of red and black feathers on this smart little Vintage Style Pill Box Hat, made from wool and accented with a dotted veil, easy to wear by way of an elastic band.
Whether you dig the versatility of the skirt or the traditional silhouette of the dress, there is no denying the hypnotic powers of the print and how it can be played up with different types of styling. Try out several to see what suits you best, and remember that a little confidence goes a long way!
