This Leslie Fay dress is one we think stands out among the 100's of 1980's Fay dresses that litter your local thrift. It's a bit earlier, probably mid-late 70's, the tag reading "My Latest Leslie Fay". There's something special about the muted pink, blue and yellow florals that dance on top of a stark absence of color. The high contrast between the black negative space and light washed out florals is fun and cute, but can we talk about this OG bubble/balloon sleeve moment. We of course, love the exaggerated puff sleeve trend hitting it full force here in 2021, but let us pay our respects to the originals. This piece is an homage to the birth of balloon sleeves and the perfect training wheel option to your future big-ass-balloon sleeve dreams. We hope they carry you to the heavens.
