How I'd Wear It: Sleeveless Plaid Dress




Whatcha Wearing?
Vintage dress available here in my Etsy shop
Blouse from Philly AIDS Thrift / Tie is actually a belt
Tights from H&M / Shoes from Buffalo Exchange

I like to call this style 'non-trashy schoolgirl', and to me the high priestess (headmistress?) of this look is Alexa Chung. Girlfriend pulls this look off so effortlessly so often. Can you tell I have a bit of a girl crush on her?

I just started layering blouses under dresses last fall and I think I have my Catholic upbringing to blame. After 12 years of Catholic school uniforms, this look just felt a bit too familiar! Now that I have some (a lot) of distance from those times, it's something I go to quite often as a way to remix dresses that I usually just layer with a cardigan. Hey, the more ways to wear one dress the better!
