ttF Fashion Diary: Retro Lace

ttF Fashion Staples Series Diary: Retro Lace
I bought this dress when H&M first opened in Boston. Every time I wear it I get compliments. The lace polka-dot print came in different silhouettes but I adore the 50s feel of the shirt dress with a flowing skirt. I swapped the black belt it came with for a cream one and then used a piece of lace I cut off an old top as a headband to bring in some more white. Once I left my house I wish I had worn different shoes. I’m not crazy about the gold. I would have preferred a chunkier, wooden heel. But from ankles up, I love the vintage feel of this look.
