Every once in a while my hubby and photographer gives my #ootd a playful name. Not just to poke fun at me, but mostly because in between shoots he helps me out by uploading the photos while I change for the next round of pictures. You may recall my “rodeo outfit,” the “parachute dress” or the “flight attendant look.” Yeah, those were all of his creative masterpieces. And if you have not yet already guessed from the title of this post, he refers to this black and white dress as my “barcode dress.”
You can never own enough shift dresses. These little numbers are so versatile, and when in the right color, they’re suitable for wear all year round. A classic black and white version like this one, can take you day and night – hot or cold. For a whopping $17.90 I don’t think you’ll find a better option! One of my favorite color combos is tan and black, so it was a no brainer to clog around in my new studded platforms. Rather than adorning this look with statement jewelry, I hung a thin tassel scarf around my neck to create movement. Thin scarves are trending and act more like accent pieces than cold weather gear.
Finally, I added a pop of color to my barcode dress with a red fringe backpack – perfect for a day of exploring the city. I used to designate backbacks for traveling or hiking. I definitely missed out because these bags are great for everyday wear. By the time you set out with your belongings, your husband’s, and your dog’s, your purse suddenly weights 10 pounds. Ditch the shoulder weight and tote your goods in style in a fringe backpack! This one is from Current Clothing. Text Nancy to order it (415)980-4772.
