When I first saw this dress I was bored after college and trying clothes on in New Look to amuse myself. I tried on some stripy things and a pair of comfy dungarees, and then this dress, which I fell completely in love with on the spot. I actually detailed this in what is both my first fitting room post and actually the very first post on this blog. You can read it here.
This dress has lots of lovely details, including the sheer fabric used on the arms and outer skirt, the cute collar, and the super sweet lace detailing. It may be all black, but it's pretty light, so it's great for reasonably warm weather and more typical I-can't-make-up-my-mind weather. I decided to wear it with these cute black thigh highs with white stripes to further the black and white theme. I think these socks were given to me by my grandma (nice one, Norma).
