Who: Amanda of Milwaukee, WI

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.”

Shopping Tips: “Try on everything. Especially when shopping for vintage treats. This dress was my least favorite visually out of the twenty or so I selected to try on. Once I tried it on, it was love at first sight!”
