There’s no better style for an up-and-coming working girl than this dress…. in 1990, that is. This is a gal that works hard and plays harder! She rocks out to Madonna but knows how to keep it classy and fun in the workplace. On the weekends, she really let’s her hair down and sports fun prints, tons of jewelry, and a classic red pout. She’s independent, witty, and she puts the F U in FUN.
We binge watched “Working Girl”, “Suddenly Susan” and “9 to 5” to get in the mood for this collection of clothing! We love the free spirit mythos that went with early 90’s style. It was all about accessories, patterns, bows, and FUN. Our model Meg is keeping pretty true to the heart of early 90’s working girl style with a scarf knitted around her pixie locks and a gold brooch pinned to her lapel.
The India-ago-go dress is vintage early 1990’s; blue silk dress with allover french horn pattern. Jewel neckline with buttons down the front of the bodice to the waist, medic style closure to the left of the bodice. Navy blue plastic buttons, knee-length skirt. Long “leg o’ mutton” sleeves, slightly poufed at the shoulder and contains shoulder pads (would be fairly easy to remove shoulder pads). Buttons at the wrist. Has belt loops but does not have a belt with it. Size: 10. Measurements; bust: 22″; waist: 16.5″ (has elastic, so there is some give here); hips: 22″; length: 41″. Price: $42.00
Adding a little 90’s flair to your wardrobe can really spice up a blah collection of clothing. 90’s fashion was so fun and fearless! You don’t have to go full tilt, as we did with Meg’s look here. You can add a fun blouse with a pencil skirt or a funky sweater with leggings and capture the spirit of the look!
