Today, for a change of pace, our sub-theme is Red, Black and White. You don’t absolutely have to include white in today’s post if you’d rather not – it’s just a fun variation for those who wish to give it a shot. 🙂
Today, I have a 50s-inspired work outfit for you. I thought this ensemble would be excellent for an office outfit. The white breaks up the darkness of the black and the boldness of the red, giving it such a cheery look that still has a dramatic edge to it.
When I spotted this dress on ModCloth, it spoke to the lover of vintage in me. Although I’m totally a 1940s girl, and this dress is distinctly more a 1950s style, I found the print so gorgeous I had to have it. It’s a cotton fabric, which breaks my rule of never buying cotton because the cat hair sticks to it so badly… But the print makes up for it by camouflaging the hair. This super lightweight dress is going to be perfect for summer.
The shoes are also from ModCloth – I was disappointed when I received them because I thought they would be a deeper red (it’s really impossible to tell online). Searching for something to wear with them, I found this belt on Amazon and hoped it would be a perfect match. I was delighted when it arrived and did indeed go with the shoes as if they were made for each other.
