Punk Pastels





Dress: Kate Spade; Coat: JCrew; Stockings: from Japan; Shoes: Converse; Sunglasses: Karen Walker; Headband: Goody
I've had this Kate Spade shift dress for about a year, and apart from the contrast collar (which is always a must for me), the print made me feel like I was in the 1980's John Hughes classic Pretty in Pink, which I have to admit is one of my favorite movies! The overlapping dots create an almost checkerboard effect, which is made less intense by the pale mint accents. I played off the mint with this light pink hooded stadium coat from JCrew, but then upped the punk-ante with my Chuck Taylors.  Usually I only wear these on vacation (they are the perfect shoe to walk around cities in! Plus they look super cool and Parisian with a button up), but every once in a while I break them out to tone down a dress. 

Until next time,
