Outfit of the Day #5

Share This Post

For our latest Outfit of the Day, we chose the Captain America pin-up style dress from Hot Topic and Torrid by Her Universe.  This dress was designed by one of the winners of the first ever Her Universe Fashion Show that has now become tradition at San Diego Comic Con.

Here are a couple of fun pictures of the dress taken by Justin Davidson Photography.

For the professional photos, I went full-on 50s with saddle shoes and all, but everyday wear, I wear it with tall boots and a sweater like these photos show:

As you can see from the picture with The Herald of Geek above, we had the start of an Avengers pin-up team going!

The fit of the dress is pretty standard.  The satin material does not have any stretch, but the back has elastic at the top, so there is room for movement.  I’m wearing a 2X from Hot Topic, but you can get larger sizes from Torrid.  Here are the links to both stores:

The shield prop was a lucky find at a Con, but I found one similar here:
