What: A beautiful 1950′s cocktail dress

Where: Tip Top Atomic Shop

How Much: $22

When I Use It: “Basically anytime I go out for some tasty beverages. It’s ridiculously comfortable and full of sass. I always get stares when I’m rocking it. I feel like someone has put me in the Delorean and taken me back to a 1953 cocktail lounge.”
