dressed up like a lady: Vicki Vale Vintage Frames

Vicki Vale Vintage Frames

Check it out: I got yet another pair of giant, vintage glasses. I had them filled with my Rx via a promotion from Lensfactory (they messed it up at first, but then they fixed it for free), and now I'm wearing them constantly. 

There's no use beating around the bush. I bought these frames exclusively so that I could look like Vicki Vale from Tim Burton's 1989 Batman.

Kim Basinger looking badass as intrepid reporter Vicki Vale.

Vicki's sexy '80s black mock turtleneck dress seemed like a perfect excuse to wear this crazy bodycon dress from Asos.

Dress: Asos
Heels: Jessica Simpson
Batman button: Made by MC when he was 13
Vintage frames: Justthegoodstuff on Etsy

Here's the crazy thing though: this dress is backless. Like intensely backless.

I'd like to think that hey, Vicki's could be backless too for all we know. But it's totally not. We know this because we see it from the back when she shakes hands with fucking Arliss.

Oh well! Her dress isn't a shamelessly insubstantial exercise in mostly lyrca either. This isn't cosplay, you guys. Well, not entirely.

Honestly though, as cool as it looks from the right angle, this dress is so open in the back that it tended to bow and pucker whenever I moved my arms. So I lessened the gap with a sock garter. It actually ended up looking pretty sweet.
