I got this dress last winter at Grey Dog. I’m not sure I even wore it last year, it screams Autumn which makes me feel like I should wear it in the fall or not at all. Anyway, if one can manage to fit it into the rotation, it’s so very cute and fun and quintessentially fall.
what I wore: blouse – vintage via potter’s house, skirt – vintage apertif via cheap thrills, coat – my grandmother’s (seen here), tights – hue, slip – vintage, blazer & platforms – forever21, earrings – vintage via mae’s, rings – right purchased on a trip to France & left – dillards
Ahh winter white. I thought of this outfit in my head and was pleasantly surprised when it came out just as good on my person. That does not always happen. More often than not, a collection of pieces looks far better in my mind’s eye than on my body. It’s always nice to prove yourself wrong. Anyway, I love wearing white. I think it looks good in the summer when you have a bit of a glow and it looks great in the winter because as pale as I may feel, I’m never as “white” as white. I think the black really makes it pop. On a personal note, my girlfriends and I went to see Bring It On: The Musical last night. I was completely floored! It was so good! I highly recommend it.
PS: I finally made an extra hole in the ankle strap of my platforms (with a large safety pin). It made all the difference and now I don’t feel like I will die in those shoes one day.
This sweet little dress will forever remind me of my wedding. I wore it to our day-after brunch, where I promptly ate carbs for the first time in a month.That didn’t go over so well but anyway, all in all it was such a lovely experience where I was able to speak to so many loved ones that I didn’t have a chance to at our wedding. Alas, I digress. Here is how I wore it that day (with some of my sweet college friends).
What do you think? Does it work with the black tights? I am obsessed with the booties I have on but I think they may not work with this look. It might need more of a platform since the dress is a longer length and I am a shorty.
