Wednesday Wardrobe Challenge - Black and White

This weeks wardrobe challenge is black and white - I used to wear a lot of black, but now I tend to wear a lot more colour. I have to say it did feel a little weird to be so lacking in colour - but I do always have my hair to brighten up my outfit!
I love this frock and I've had it forever! I originally bought it for a grand total of $15 from trade me. The fabric looks like newspaper and apparently its a German newspaper.
I wore my white shoes today - I bought them from the fabulous Retro Room last Thursday. I like them a lot. I've never owned white shoes before!





Outfit Deets:

Shoes - Vintage from Retro Room
Tights - Farmers
Dress - Vintage from Trade Me
Cardy & Belt -Glassons
Necklace - Equipt
Brooch - Made by me!

Helga! White shoes seem very 60's to me too. I think these will look fab with all kinds of different coloured tights. I promise - next time we are in town we are going to Retro Room!! Seriously - I don't need an excuse to go there;)
