Wear This: Black and White Dress + Lilac Walls


Black and White with Lilac

Okay, so this probably counts as more of a mini style post than anything else, but I couldn’t resist sharing the photos that Mary took at the most colorful hotel on the planet (also known as The Saguaro). I could use a little color to start off the week anyway. How about you?

Ironically, the only color in these photos is that neon lilac wall. It’s kind of radiant orchid-ish, but I feel like it would need a little pink in it for that, no?

Black + White Dress with Zipper Back

What can I say, I wear a lot of neutrals, especially black. But I actually love color. I usually just use it as more of an accent though. What about you? Do you have a lot of bright colors in your closet or more neutrals?

Black, White, and Lilac // French Connection Dress

Dress // old French Connection (similar)

Bag // Marc by Marc Jacobs

Shoes // D’orsay Flats (similar)

The back of this dress is my favorite part. Hence, the back photos. I’m still a sucker for an exposed zipper.

P.S. I didn’t realize this until I started writing this post, but doesn’t this dress look a look like the one from this post I did on what to wear to a conference? It happens to be French Connection too. Clearly, I’m a fan of black and white FC dresses. Ha!

You look beautiful in this, I wish you had added a full length photo of the front though! I might just have to make one similar but not sure I could find the right fabric. Love it though. Thanks. Zoe

Thanks Zoe. I’m totally kicking myself for not getting a full length from the front.

Such a lovely dress and backdrop. You look just gorgeous! I tend towards colors much more than neutrals, but I mostly wear muted colors.

I love colour and my closet is filled with colourful things, but lately I’m much more interested in neutrals. This dress is gorgeous, I would love on like it.
