Vintage Dress: Tempting or Tacky?

1960’s Vibrant Sheer Silk Chiffon Swing Dress

This chic retro dress is a palette of citrus greens, hints of golden-yellow, with streaks of aqua blue and smoky brown bands.
The back side of the sleeveless bodice is designed with sweeping draped panel that accentuates the back silhouette.  
The cinched waist flares into a subtle pleated design; transitions into a flouncy ruffled hemline that undulates with every step.

The dress is lined in muted green crepe.

Designed by Pat Sandler for Highlight.

      “Tempting” as in the usage of being tempted to buy the dress. Not as in a “temptress”. πŸ™‚
      I do go with “adorable” because the plaid gives it a younger, less sophisticated feel. Cutesy. (Which is what I was confused with when M. called me adorable for the first time – I thought “yuck”- cutesy. But, He defined it as my being adored.)

    Hmmm… i bet the fabric would feel great and flow nicely. I like it but dont “love” it. I would need to try it on. Hard to do with online sales.
