When I say minidress, I mean it. This baby needs leggings to make it decent.

This is just some Alexander Henry fabric I picked up on sale at Joanns the other day. I think I might need to go back and get some more...I dont know what for. Maybe a skirt. Its just ridiculously cute.

The top is just as basic as you can get. Theres a box pleat (I think?) on both the front and the back.









And for fun, how I decided I needed to do my hair/makeup for work this morning:



It was a big hit. I've been getting compliments on it all day. I kind of love it to death.

How fun that you did the whole retro look!  Your hair matches the style of the very cute dress! I love the detail of the waistband insert!  The pleat reminds me so much of the tent dresses that were so fashionable in the late sixties!

That whole look with the dress and the 'Sandra Dee' hair is really great!

Wow, when you said minidress, I'll agree, you meant it, but you pull it off perfectly!

I'm glad you enjoy it, haha! (The hairstyle is just a general blow dry, some teasing, and of course, a ton of hairspray)

And alwaysinmyroom, I couldn't think of the dress style I was going for and tent dress makes perfect sense! Thank you!
