New York, New Yo...
Gingham, plaid and checks are making quite a splash right now on the streets of New York city so we had to make our own rendition of the gingham summer dress. We fused together two very unlikely patterns, the Chinese-inspired Madison dress and the office-friendly Lancey pattern.
The outcome is a simple, easy to wear dress that is office friendly but has enough edge to be out-on-the-town-cool too. We exposed the center back zip and used one with silver teeth to add a slightly tougher look to the conservative design.
