Black & Tan

I needed an easy outfit for a day of errands. Black cotton GAP dress from a couple of summer ago, got a new life with a raised hem. There's subtle layering, with a vintage lace cami, and a black & white print full skirt, and the outfit gets a boost of warmth with caramel colored leather shoes and accessories. I've been waiting to wear these shoes for months now, they were quite the score: vintage tan leather monk shoes, in MY size! For good measure, I added a matching thin belt and coordinating vintage bag, and zoom, zoom! I'm outta here! Ciao!

Now Wearing:
  • GAP Black cotton dress, hemmed. The GAP
  • Christian Dior, vintage lace-trimmed camisole, thrifted
  • Apt. 9, black & white abstract print full skirt, thrifted
  • Accessories: Vintage tan leather belt, purse & "monk" shoes, thrifted

P.S. POLKA DOT. Jill the woman behind the blog, Polka Dot Streetstyle from London, is working with American Apparel to showcase a new product from AA fresh from the sweatshop-free factory in L.A. The new product is riding pants, and Madame Polka Dot did a terrific job with a fresh face on the streets of London.  The model and the pants look sleek and classy, a bit of a change of pace for AA who seems to like their models tart. I kinda wish they'd use more sweet images like this one:
