I Swear By The Daybreak

I finally got to wear one of my Box Vintage dress. I also found that it was a lot harder to create an outfit around than I expected. Not because of any flaw of the dress, it's perfect. It's just that a) it was cold and b) I have very little experience in wearing such light and pretty colours.

I think it will be a lot more wearable in summer simply because it looks divine without much adornment. However, the cold breeze blowing made me rethink the sleeveless look and this is what I came up with. Just a little bit of black and a little bit of white. It also made the dress look a little bit less like I was going to milk a cow.

Note: Don't get too excited by the bare looking legs. They are firmly encased in a pair of nude stockings. I'll never say never though. Baby steps.

You look very good. And the sheer tights are a nice touch.

Hey this is great!
I own a pair of shoes almost identical, where are yours from? Mine are from a shoe maker in Adelaide called 'Kelly,' bought from Club House Lane Boutique.
Anyhow, the dress is very cute and I'm sure there are so many ways you could wear it.
