The black and white dress

I did a little inspired number today for Easter Sunday.  I channeled my girl SJP.  She mixed two black and white prints and of course it works!  I didn’t have a black and white sweater so I had to go with the silver cardigan, this just reminded me I need a black and white polka dot or striped sweater in my wardrobe stat!  I stay away from white tops because of my body type, so I will have to get the sweater in the reverse color scheme.

I figured I go ahead and try and make this look work anyway, I didn’t have the sweater but I sure had the shoes! LOL.  I got the dress (which I absolutely love) from Value Village during one of their half off sales (cost $2.25) because I loved the vintage 50’s cut on this dress.

Short-Waisted Women: If you have broad shoulders and back due to a short torso, you can make this look work with a black cardigan with white stripes and a dress pattern like mine.
