Chevron + Bows

Breakdown: dress- Plato's Closet, pimp coat- Limited Too (circa 1997/1998),
belt- stolen from a vintage dress, shoes- Liz Claiborne

The chevron print has always been a favorite of mine! Every time chevron comes back around as a trend, I try and try to find a cute dress where the angles hit me at the right spot. It is almost as difficult as finding the perfect pair of jeans. Know what I mean? The stripes are either too thick, too thin, or the lighter color hits at the widest part of me. This dress, however, fits like a glove and is super comfortable to boot!

I tried sporting this number sans belt but it looked too stark. This wide belt with a little bow flair is the perfect solution to breaking up the pattern, without taking away from it! I haven't been belting my dresses and blouses as much lately... but I am seriously reconsidering my belts after today!
