If I'm being completely honest, I wouldn't wear this dress exactly as it is. I'd definitely have to remove the giant shoulder pads! I already have fairly broad shoulders and enormous 80s shoulder pads like this are just a bit too much for me! The great thing is that removing shoulder pads is one of the easiest alterations you can make to a vintage item. I do it all. the. time. Never let that scare you away from buying a dress or blouse that you're otherwise in love with. Sometimes the simplest changes can make the biggest difference when customizing a vintage item for your body.
