I was fawning over this topshop dress which was way out of my league, pricewise, and hoped and prayed that other highstreet stores would jump on the bandwagon and start massively producing little cute Wednesday Adams dresses for me to buy and twirl in, but to no avail. I had already thought of the alternative: buying a peter pan collar blouse and wearing it underneath a simple black dress, but I found NO peter pan collar blouse and I realized that I do not have a simple black dress that met my requirements (high neck, short, long sleeved. Then I found this H&M dress in the back of my closet where it had been gathering dust because it has no stretch whatsoever and the top part is quite tight (too uncomfy for everyday wear), and I settled on trying out the look with this dress and a lace blouse I picked up in the mid season sales at H&M. I quite like the result, but I wish the neck was higher and the collar was more peter pansy (haha) for it to peek out over the black and stand out more, but this’ll have to do for now. I added my crochet tights to add a little bit of me to the mix (so as not to look like ALL the other girls loving this look) and put on my clogs because clogs always seem to “work” with the strangest combinations. Somehow, these clogs make this outfit less goth and more fashion forward, in my opinion. I could totally see Alexa Chung rocking this outfit. As a matter of fact, I think it was Alexa that started the whole Wednesday Adams dress craze with her pretty madewell dress
Anyway, hope you like the look! I sure do, even though I couldn’t lift my arms all day.
PS: I was freezing my ass off, don't know if you can tell, but yesterday was the coldest day yet and I was literally shivering while taking these pictures. Yes I am insane.
