Fascinating Black 50's Frock

I try to not be one of those people who buys the same dress in all the colours available. Hey- I said I TRYIt doesn't happen often but it has been known to happen on occasion. I now own 3 of this particular dress.  (one more yet to be posted)

It really is an awesome cut- and I am obviously a sucker for anything I can thrown a crinoline under.  Being black this one is also ultra versatile so I think I have suitably justified it.

I found it in the Factory Store from a few posts back. (Dangerfield, Alannah Hill etc) and scored it for a very reasonable $60.00.  I had a split second in the changing room where I seriously contemplated not getting it as I already have 2 in the same style but then I turned back into the Fliss you all know and walked it on up to the counter.

In this pic I have teamed it with my new Alannah Hill fascinator. It essentially consists of an over sized black velvet bow and black netting highlighted with orange, red, pink, yellow and blue pom poms. A nice feature piece when worn with the right outfit. I think it works quite well with this one in fact. The original price tag on said fascinator was $89.00. I took it home for $16.00.  I would have been silly not to ... right?
