The retro dress of my gamer dreams. This dress combines both my love of vintage styled clothes and vintage games. It brought back memories of sitting on the floor with my Commodore 64, joystick in hand just chomping away as Pac-Man.
I’ve never worn short dresses and this Catch Me If You Can dress from Retrolicious was the second one I’d purchased. Now it’s my go to dress for those days I just want to get up and go. It’s flattering in all the right ways and doesn’t tend to fly up in the wind.
Who doesn’t love this pattern? It can be dressed up or dressed down and matched with so many different things! I get strangers always giggling with joy at my dress as they check out the cherries and watermelon on it. The colours are vibrant and bright and stay that way with washing.
And YES there are pockets! I know I dwell on that, but who doesn’t love a dress with pockets? These aren’t tiny pockets either! I fit my wallet in there and keys.
This dress also has some great details like seaming along the chest to help flatter and fit the shape of your body, and built in elastic along the waistline to give you a little more room. Great for those bloaty days.
