How to Wear a White Dress

You all know I’m a not-so-closet geek. On a recent visit to Glasgow I did a very excitable scream when we found this old police box/TARDIS in the middle of a busy shopping centre.

I’ve always put off wearing white. I’ve got olive skin and brown hair, so really it should suit me, but I’ve just never found an item that I don’t feel a bit silly in. I found this dress in the Zara sale a few weeks ago, and was oddly attracted to it. I’ve read loads about wearing white in winter so figured I’d give it a go.

Dress: Zara
Cardigan: Vintage
Necklace: Vintage
Boots: Miu Miu (sample sale)

I kept it basic with black tights and boots, and only gave the outfit some colour with a gold chain and bright pink lipstick. I love this necklace! I know it’s edging towards tacky, but I wear it with so many things. Such a bargain considering I found it on a market stall at Spitalfields for a fiver.

Since having this dress I have managed to spill curry, smear lipstick, and have a muddy dog climb on me. Thank God for stain remover!
