Something Old, Something New

Candy Cane Jane

Happy Holidays guys!!! I'm sticking to my love for black and white in this post with a generous splash of color.  The jumper dress is incredibly old, I bought it maybe 10 years ago.  However, it managed to hide in the back of my closet, avoided being donated to the Goodwill.

When I initially came back across this dress, I can't lie I thought hideous, but honestly at one point in my life this was my absolute favorite dress.  I loved the color and print, and the fact that it bubbled at the knees was a trend that I died for in 2005.  I figured since I once loved this dress, I could surely modernize it a bit making it work for my style and taste now.  And that's what I did.  I added a black and white striped sweater, a choker (which is very in style at the moment), and a pair of brogues.  What do you guys think??
