The Designers United Vaudeville exhibition is going on now and is well worth taking the time to visit and shop. I particularly love this playsuit from Milk Motion that has an adorable ruffle on the “chassis” which made me think of the song, If You Knew Susie – a vaudeville classic.
If you knew Susie, like I know Susie
Oh! Oh! Oh! What a girl
There’s none so classy
As this fair lassie
Oh! Oh! Holy Moses, what a chassis

It’s not the dress’ fault. I planned to wear it – the short version – so it wasn’t too dressy. We had our one year anniversary party and I thought I would dress up a bit with this LaPointe black silk.

And nothing rezzed. When one prim piece rezzed after the party started it was a peach skirt. hmmmm. Must have done the wrong folder.I put worn in the search term and hmmm, I am not wearing this, but I draw a blank trying to remember the outfit I am wearing.
It’s a tough question and ably answered by Iota Ultsch of Tres Jolie in this marvelous dress of Guipure lace with the eponymous name Guipure. I love the beautifully balanced handdrawn lace textures in the bodice, glitch pants and skirt. This dress is all lace from top to toe.
