80's Lycra 2 Piece in Cornflower Blue

Occasionally I find a frock with extras. These can be in the form of matching belts, head bands or even a purse. This frock came with a matching jacket/ cardi hybrid.

The fabric for this outfit is really nice. It is a silky lycra mix in cornflower blue- and hangs beautifully. The top of the dress is a simple loose fitting t-shirt style with short sleeves and a v neckline.

The jacket/cardi hybrid is another story. I could see the potential in the dress itself. Not so much when coupled with the jacket. Thankfully the beauty in owning a 2 piece is that there are no rules about having to wear them together. So I won't.

The jacket has an interesting half circled gathering going on at the point that it ties together. There is a vaguely art deco feel to that particular feature.

When the jacket is worn over the dress the outfit feels a little "Mother of the Bride circa 85" to me. Maybe I should embrace that as a P.O.F and add a decorative or floral hat...

Until I find that hat- I will keep wearing the dress with the belt and with the gold and white peep toes in the picture I think!
