Ever since I saw Taylor Swift wear that gorgeous Kate Spade striped Carolyn dress at Ryan Seacrest's KIIS annual Jingle Balls concert last year, I knew I had to get my hands on it. I've seen quite a number of similar black and white dresses but none of them had the A-line flare that I wanted. You can just imagine how ecstatic I was when I found this striped frock from a local online shop. T-Swift's Kate Spade dress costs almost $500 (which in my opinion was way too expensive for such a basic silhouette) so I'm very happy that I chanced upon a similar design for a fraction of the cost.
I wore this outfit to my Dad's birthday lunch a few weeks ago. I kept it simple and paired the dress with leopard heels and a quilted bag. The next time I'm wearing this, I'll make the look more elegant and holiday-appropriate by putting my hair up in a pony tail or maybe a low chignon, accessorizing with a pretty pair of sparkly earrings and a silver clutch and donning black stockings and black pumps. :)
