Give my Love to Rose - DAY 11

Johnny Cash is ringing in my ears as I type out this post for Day 11 of my pledge to "Stop Buying More Shit!", so I've dedicated this post to the Man in Black.  
And I think this blue satin number is just the thing for listening to Cash as I think it has been around the block once or twice, possibly at some of his wilder gigs.
Not likely, as it was found in a dingy Brisbane thrift store, but it has certainly had a wild life at some point - it was once an evening dress but it's been hacked to mini length with a dubious hem and has oodles of cigarette burns.
I love it though.  
As I'm sure the previous owner did.
I'm wearing it here with a 1990s mesh bodysuit, 1950s purple headpiece and platforms.
Oh and I cut my hair while sitting in bed last night - yeah I'm broke, but at least I only have to put up with my own mindless chit-chat;).

  4. Hmm, I'm pondering what a person could do to salvage the dress around the cigarette burns.

  5. Thanks for all your lovely comments ladies - I'm following all you gorgeous creatures:)!
    Terri - The burns aren't terribly noticeable because of the intricate cording and brocade pattern on the satin - I get a lot of comments on this $4 dress but I think the fabric is so out-there, noone's noticed the fag burns;)! xo
