I feel the same way about gingham as I do about summer picnic’s with champagne; giddy and ready for more. Is gingham not the sweetest summer print? A little bit retro, a little bit classic, and in a dress like this, still fresh and sweet as ever. I love the details on this version, the back zipper runs the entire length of the dress. The oversized pockets give an almost apron-like feel to the shape; really bringing home that retro vibe.
I mentioned in my post The Wedding Guest: Cream & Stripes , that the dress I was wearing in that post was one of my very favourite cuts of all time. This dress is bang on point with that cut. Super fitted, hits just below the knee and tapered in at the waist: a gorgeous feminine cut. I mean really, this dress was made for a champagne picnic.
