Black & White

I made this dress a while ago, because I was completely lacking a basic black dress....crazy I know.
I was happy with this new wardrobe addition, but I couldn't help but think "gee whiz....maybe it's too basic" and that's where the giant white bow brooch comes to the rescue....because everyone likes large bows pinned to their front...don't they?

I got these sheer white spotty tights from target....and I love them lots!
I also got a pair in light grey...but I worry that they make me look like I have old lady corpse legs, and I don't think that's the effect I'm after...haha, oh well
