Fab Redux: Blinded by the Missoni

Before you excuse this 1980s Missoni Dress ($95) for being too frumpy, hear me out. The thing about vintage is though it is oft one of a kind, it is also oft of another era. Read: old fashioned hemlines. Do you know how many vintage dresses and skirts I've had hemmed? Sometimes vintage items need updating, whether it's a modern hemline, new buttons or a freshly sewn sleeve. That said, imagine this deal of a Missoni dress with a shorter hemline and cap sleeves. I estimate the nip/tuck will run you another $25-$30 on top of the $95. See what I'm saying?

I love the print. It could be easily updated. For me I would wear it as is with the right assessories.

That print is, to put it nicely, just not doing it for me. Well it is doing a couple things but nothing good.

I do my own tailoring, and have a vintage Missoni dress collecting dust...maybe you've given me an idea! Also take note: vintage dresses and tops were cut with higher armholes, which can be restrict your movement!

Yeah, the print is not doing it for me, either. For some reason, the colors are a little too "I bought it in Jamaica on vacation" for me.

No, I don't see it. It's the print. It's hurting me.

You could totally tailor this yourself - unless of course you are taking it in at the sides. Hemlines are easy to do, so are sleeves b/c of the fabric.

If it's worn correctly, with right accesories, shoes, handbag, etc... it makes a fab outfit.

I love the vision FAB but I am not digging the line underneath the waist.

The length is just past the knee... I don't think that's too old-fashioned or frumpy. Accessorized correctly as is I think it would be far from frumpy!
