Gingham

Now, I never thought I would be someone to wear this pattern.  Gingham?  I like it but it's not really something I gravitated towards.  I always thought that gingham should be left to porcelain dolls and children under the age ten. But the more I saw it on blogs and fashion magazines, the more intrigued I became with the pattern. I was looking for dresses for work one day when I came across this gingham shift dress from Asos.  The pattern caught my eye and I loved the loose, semi-slouchy style.  I thought - perfect for work!  When I received the dress in the mail and tried it on, I still was not convinced.  So I sent it to my fashion confidante, my mom.

She, of course, loved it - which had me convinced enough.  But then she sent me a throw back picture (see here) in an almost identical outfit and I was sold.  Like mother, like daughter - thirty plus years later.  What's not to love?  Thanks, Mami!  Another great mother/daughter fashion moment for the books!  And if you're reading this, I love you! :)
