I bought this dress in Berlin because it reminded my of Prada lace designs and of sexy 50s secretaries; but I never wear it. Don't get me wrong, I love the outfits in Mad Men just as anyone, but when it comes to myself a proper knee length dress like this just makes me feel totally overdressed. The last time I wore it I picked up a tennis ball and threw it to my coach which made the old, delicate lace rip. (It took me hours to fix it.)
Although when I look at these pictures I’m thinking maybe not all is lost. I guess what it needs is some kick-ass boots and a black belt with lots of metal - Plus standing in the bathtub and looking black and white.
How would you style a dress like this?
dress: vintage (integrety casuals), boots: givenchy, belt: 2nd hand
