I've had this dress since seventh grade. I wore it in my middle school talent shows when I performed magic. I was quite the little magician back in those days...
I found the dress on the Belk sale rack for a ridiculously low price, and I've gotten more wear out of it than I ever imagined I would. Last friday, I wore it to dinner at a trendy restaurant in downtown Nashville. I wore my pink lace tights, but they were snagged by my shoe on the way out the door. So I switched them out for some white lace tights (it's kind of hard to see them against the background). The white further illustrates the look I was going for.
The outfit was vaguely inspired by Spring 2010 Miu Miu. But I was also going for the contrast between the schoolgirl-esque and the edgy.
Schoolgirl... button-down, tights, and glasses.
Edgy... sequins, studs, bag, and zebra necklace.
