FASHION DEAL DIVA: 80's Nostalgia

When I was little, I loved looking through my mom's dresses. She had so many beautiful cocktail dresses and party gowns, a multitude of which were worn at Christmas parties throughout the holiday season. This nostalgia for all things 80's and Christmas continues to stay with me, and this upcycled vintage dress has the lace + velvet combo that made it's first appearance in the 80's, and is back now in full force.

Lace and velvet are not exactly plain materials, but they work well together when they are understated (like here.) Why does this not scream "80's"? Well..for starters, no puffy sleeves, or puffy skirt. So you get all the joy of the 80's style and fabrics in a nice, updated look.
