Doppelganger: Neons

February 26, 2015

I can’t believe I haven’t done a “Doppelganger” post since this past fall! I’ve been adding some great neon vintage dresses to The Curvy Elle Shop and thought it was the perfect opportunity to do a post.

For those of you who aren’t familiar with the term “doppelganger” is defined as “someone who looks like someone else”* (usually used in terms of people). In my “Doppelganger” posts, I instead find look-a-like designer pieces and compare them to my own plus size vintage pieces from The Curvy Elle Shop. I like showing that you can be fashionable at any price point and at any size.

1970’s Neon

February 24, 2015










Last time I went thrifting, I came across a treasure trove of gaudy vintage (NEVER WORN – TAGS STILL ATTACHED!) 1970’s house dresses. They must have been donated from some woman’s estate. I guess she loved to shop, or they come from some dead stock (no pun intended! I swear!) — who knows, but I won!  This neon green one is certainly one of my favorites. I look forward to posting and sharing more of these finds in the coming weeks on here and in The Curvy Elle Shop!
