They say every picture tells a story, and I like to think that every garment does too. That's why, with every piece you buy, I will include a delightful "story" of the life that your garment once led.

Darling Dita and her Velvet & Pearl Dress

Dita looked stunning in this LBD as she drank wine on a boat one late night in 1981. The night was dark and the fog dense. Everyone had seen her sipping drink after drink all evening. She asked her cheating husband to walk with her to the head of the boat and without hesitation she quickly pushed him off. The music was too loud to hear his screams and the fog too thick to see his flailing arms. Dita knew it was the only way she could get rid of him. She threw her glass of apple cider and never looked back. Clever girl got away with it. Planning on any mischievous acts? Hopefully not murderous ones, but if so this may be the dress for you.

Black velvet & pearl dress by Taurus Nites $42
Label says size 12 but fits like around size 6-10
