grazioso long farewell dress modcloth

Morning!  Long time no post.  It's Sammi from The Soubrette Brunette, and today I'm posting a little remix of Elana's awesome black + white checked dress.  I tend to borrow a ton of clothes from Elana, and I always end up loving everything she sends my way.  I wanted to try this particular dress because although I really like it on other people, it isn't a piece that I'd normally pick out for myself.  I don't have a ton of plain dresses (which can be problematic sometimes!), and although this has a distinctive pattern, if I've learned anything from What Not To Wear, it's that a pattern like this can definitely act as a neutral!

I also decided to take a page out of Marisa's book and pair this dress with some funky colored tights.  I didn't end up wearing a cardigan for these photos, but I think a red sweater would look really fun with this ensemble, too.  Since this dress is both structured and comfy, it can be dressed up or down, which always comes in handy.

Elana put this dress up for swaps pretty recently, so none of the other girls have had a chance to style it yet, but I love how Elana styled it with a sweet bow belt and a pop of blue from her shoes!  This dress would lend itself well to so many different stylings, so I can't wait to see how the other girls wear it in the future!  How would you wear Elana's plaid dress?

Have a great Wednesday!

  2. That dress is so pretty! I love the mint tights with it :D

  3. This dress is perfection! Both of you all styled it so well!


  4. That black white and grey checked dress looks like it was made for you - you look fabulous wearing it. I also love the mint green hosiery you styled with the dress, giving your outfit a nice pop of colour. I agree that a red jumper or cardigan would look pretty with that outfit.

  5. Such a fun outfit, Sammie! I love that you paired the colorful tights with this dress. xo
