Print and Proper

2.12.2012




Ark & Co tribal print dress
Calvin Klein coat with oversized lapels
Jon Jossef pumps with wooden heel
Vintage red banker clutch
Thrifted necklace
Kenzie thigh highs

I've been trying to get Micol to wear more patterns for just about our entire friendship, so it was a huge shock when she bought this dress without even asking what I thought about it first.

Of course, being a sucker for prints--especially of the tribal variety--I fell in love the second I saw it, and couldn't wait to try it on. Besides the fun pattern, I adore the high, elastic waist and cutout details on the sides. And when we were shooting this outfit, a cute gay guy even walked by and yelled, "Gorgeous dress girl!" Affirmation of the highest degree.

Since Micol broke her anti-pattern stance, her wardrobe has slowly expanded to include more and more prints... from tribals, to florals, to polka dots and more abstract shapes. Perfect for a dash of liveliness on a hungover Sunday.
