Outfit: Black and White Plaid Dress with Purple Tights

Happy Friday everyone! Today I'm excited to show you this new black & white plaid dress I bought from Modcloth with the credits I won last month for sharing a holiday outfit! I'm always so happy when I open a package and everything fits perfectly. I may have been able to size down on this but it's extra comfy because nothing is snug, which means I'll probably be able to wear it for many years.

I wore this outfit to Matt's work holiday party last week. The dress has a perfect retro shape and it's actually very comfortable because the fabric is slightly stretchy. It also has a neat texture and heft to it which makes it a perfect choice in winter (especially our generally mild Georgia winters). For its debut I paired it with some dark purple tights and my trusty lace-up ankle boots. A woman at the party gave me a compliment on my colorful tights so I think they were a good choice.

Sorry this post went up later than usual. I posted so late yesterday I figured I could wait and write this today. Then I ended up going out to lunch and shopping at Target today. I was incredibly happy to get out of the house! I also tried one of the new flat whites at Starbucks and I was very pleasantly surprised at how tasty it was. It has extra coffee taste and kind of reminded me of the breves I was drinking in Washington during that last basketball band trip I went on. Yum.

Anyway, I hope you have a great weekend ahead of you and that you're having a good Friday!

Your black and white plaid Grazioso Long Farewell Dress from Modcloth does have a lovely full retro shape to it and looks like it would be nice for dancing in. Your purple tights add a nice touch of colour to your outfit. That's a great close-up photo of the fabric of the dress - I can see it's heavier than a light summer dress would be. It looks pretty.

Ohh, I love this dress on you (I think I may actually be borrowing the same dress from Elana for Flock Together, and I'm now even more excited to style it!). The purple tights are a great touch, too!

I love this look! I always love black and white with pops of color, and I love the deep purple. It's always a good day when you order things and they fit right. :)

Oh my, this dress is wonderful! I love how you paired it with purple and the purple lipstick! Makes it even more spectacular! ^_^
Don't apologize for having a life! :D I totally get that!

It is a beautiful dress!!! I really love it with the tights and your lippie too! The texture is really great as well-- a great cold weather dress!

This dress is a perfect shape - and the fact I know we're not too dissimilar in height means I want it, as I know it will be the right length on me!! Darn you Modcloth and your customs fees... I am desperate for a Modcloth in the UK :(

I am envious of your bare limbs! Also I had to measure myself the other day and I am also 4'11. Maybe this is why I'm so in love with you? We're like short soul sistas?

Also this dress is a dream and if you ever want to let me borrow it (I saw Elana has one but I think yours would fit better), I would be so thankful! I'm about to send your skirt back if you want anything of mine! Let me know!

Also I love your new header!
