I couldn’t come up with a catchy name for this post, but I liken it to those sections in fashion magazines that are “Real v. Steal,” only the comparison here is old v. new. How does an older dress translate to a newer dress? Here, primarily through the use of fabric and trimmings. The old version is a belted 1940’s dress being sold on eBay, with black piping, buttons, and belt. The new version is from Trashy Diva who created this “early 1940’s inspired dress” from a similar fabric to the old one, with black button and belt buckle detailing, giving it a similar feel to the vintage dress. Overall, the effect of both dresses is very cool and I’d love to see more of this color scheme on the dance floor.
