Who: Hannah Saitta, a girl from the Californian desert who often dreams of shopping, her upcoming high school graduation, and her future life in the real world.


What: Wine & black lace 80’s dress and a vintage satin-bowed Nordstrom clutch


Where: The dress is from a charitable store in Palm Springs, California and the purse is from a local antique store in Yucca Valley, California.


How Much: $8 for the dress, $9 for the purse


When I use it: I wear this dress with a combination of stilettos, vending machine rings, lace gloves and an 80s up-do, I used these articles to rock my senior prom.

    I love that tip about not buying what everyone else has. I have to wear what my mom makes me buy, but when my dad takes me shopping, he lets me buy what i want. I usually buy things that have meaning to me and may look odd to other people. I love this outfit!

    My mom’s prom dress was weird, 80’s fashion was so weird. My mom was the Merry-Go-Round type of shopper, where all the populars go. I might actually dress up in an outfit that she still has from that store, I don’t know if she still has her prom dress, maybe, it was midnight blue with big poofy shoulders. That was like, 1990 more like, but still close!
