Green Shoulder Pad Queen


(Please excuse this post's ridiculous title, haha).

My name is Allison McGevna and I'm obsessed with shoulder pads.

There, I said it. Whew, I feel better.

It's a little ridiculous I know, but I just think they are so brilliant and create such a great silhouette. They aren't for everyone, but I'm loving them right now.





Anyway, this green dress was yet another Salvation Army steal. I had some important meetings yesterday and I wanted to be comfortable but professional as well and this green vintage 80's dress was the perfect option. I also have to stop wearing my Steve Madden pumps, but they are just so comfortable and versatile.
