Red and White

This 60's crepe dress is a very interesting mix of ´╗┐possibilities. Part candy cane, part cheerleader, part go-go girl.... I have also managed to wear it to a couple of dress up parties as a Harajuku girl and Meg White.  (just add drum sticks)

It seems to be yet another dress that does not get worn nearly often enough. I actually struggled with what shoes to team it with for this photo. Technically the shoes I chose match - but they also are not quite right. I tried red knee length boots and silver cowboy boots before I settled on some red peep toes.

Red and white and a whole bunch of features on this frock. Not only is the colour combo quite striking- it racks up some contrasting coloured pleats in the front, some contrasting stitching, not 1- not 2 but 3 keyholes on the neck line and these are interspersed with covered buttons. Woah that's a lot going on in one dress!
