2 Tone Dress

IMG_2528

Anyone else remember what I wrote before blogger had its issues? Because I sure don't. Ah, yes. I recall vaguely - I mentioned how I felt this dress was, at least, a little different for me. I don't wear black and white often (not together, anyway) so that's different.

This graphic black and white checkerboard pattern always makes me think of 2 Tone Records, which is why I nicknamed this my 2 Tone Dress.

I wore it with these work weight vintage stockings and flat shoes as I was off to Uni but I have plans of dressing it up a bit - black stockings, my new platforms and a cropped black jacket and fancy hat.

  8. It is a bit different, the black and white but also the more casual silhouette of the top; we often see you in more structured shapes. I must say you carry it off wonderfully! I love the splash of red with the cardigan, and that gorgeous hat! You're such a pretty lady :)

  11. Andi it's such a shame you've lost all the lovely comments to your earlier post before Blogger went nuts. This dress is so beautiful and I love the way it hugs your hips and swings out. I want to see more of this little gem! xo

  15. Love the black and white together, much more interesting than plain of either because of the pattern.

    I like the way you've styled it with the pumps- I often wear flats to work so sometimes avoid skirts, which is silly because many cuts of skirt work so nicely with pumps.
