Can you remember your first over the top purchase of something that was so spectacular, that you had to have it! Well for me it was the infamous People dress, that I spotted on the bus looking at this amazing boutique called Alley Cat. There it was colorful, whimsical, and it was me, and I had to have it. The next day I walked into the boutique to try on the dress and it was perfect! I didn’t want to take it off. Thank God for lay a away, because that is how I was able to purchase my beloved People Dress from and unknown designer at the time Betsy Johnson who assumed creative control over Alley Cat.
So after so many years of holding on to this dress, I thought I may pass it down to my daughter. To my surprise this was not her style. Oh well I’m determine to wear this iconic dress once again! I think I pulled it off under a sweater. What do you think?
