Such was the case with this thrifted 1950's taffeta dress with little glittery buttons and scallops all the way down the front!
When I realized that I could no longer fit into the floor length 1960's dress I had picked out in April for Dracula, the ballet, I grabbed this one out of my closet:
It was out to be perfect for Dracula! Turns out must wear colors of the evening for attendees happened to be black and red - everyone was dressed in it. I added vintage black gloves, a capelet pilfered from another dress, and a very sparkly vintage rhinestone necklace to push it just over the top enough for a vampire ballet.
Another bonus to this dress - because it's taffeta, it just sounds nice to wear!
