That Little White Dress

Photos by Molly Miller of A Piece of Toast 

Jacket: c/o Threadsence; Dress: no name boutique find, old (Similar by Fluxxus); Turtleneck: J.Crew, old; Shoes: Zara, old; Gloves: no name boutique find (These are identical minus the studs!); Tights: SPANX; Beanie: c/o Threadsence (Black is no longer available but here is the taupe version); Belt: Zara, old (Similar); Sunglasses: Ray-Ban; Nails: Orly “Kiss the Bride”; Lips: Stila “Natasha”

This white ruffle dress has been around the block….she’s seen it all…and she has undoubtedly been with me through thick and thin.

I remember back in 2008 when I purchased her….I was visiting my mom in Fort Worth and we popped into a new boutique that had just opened around the corner from her house.  I mentioned to my mother that I had a date that night, and lucky for me, when I spotted this LWD (little white dress, duh), mom footed the bill and said, “Good luck tonight!”  Naturally, that boyfriend is long gone, but this dress has remained a staple in my wardrobe!

You might remember when I paired this dress back to neons and my infamous Spike the Punch necklace here, or even when I showed you how to transition your favorite summer dress into fall here….but now I am using this feminine dress by layering it over all back and mixing it with a fun print, like camo!  (Style tip: Investing in a great shift dress, whether its white or black, will do your wardrobe a huge favor…you really won’t believe all the ways you can mix and match it, just make sure its a fabric that you can wear 12 months out of the year!)

Anyone else out there have a favorite staple like my white dress that you can mix with anything?!
