Back On The Chain Gang: Mono skater dress by Pink Clove

Humbug Honey

I've had my eye on a black and white striped dress for a while. They have a slight look of the circus about them and also of prison uniform chic so when I saw this striped mono skater dress by Pink Clove at £24 I decided it was time for me to embrace monochrome.

When the dress first arrived I envisaged making it have a slightly punky edge but once it was on I felt like a 1960's Italian starlet so channeled Sophia Loren instead. Big hair, lashings of black eyeliner and very pale lipstick.

The dress is quite low cut as you can see from this picture which my husband took before I added a vest. Its rather "Hello Boys" which I'm sometimes in the mood for but when I wore it out I did put something underneath (I was scared of taking some poor fellas eye out)
Its all about the boobs

The dress is a classic skater dress but is in a lovely thick waffle style fabric so feels very structured. 
I love the shape of this dress

I really liked the black patent belt that came with it as well. The quality of the dress is so much better than the price tag suggests-something I find with a lot of Pink Clove stuff.

Keeping my accessories simple I'm wearing my Fatshion necklace which was from Scarlet and Jo, my black jelly shoes with the red Minnie mouse bow and one of my faveourite handbags which is my Motorcycle bag by Balanciaga which I have had for a million years and just gets softer and better with age.

This dress feels like a massive fuck you to the hundreds of guides I've read over the years telling me to avoid stripes. I'm a sexy zebra and loving every minute of it.
Full of stripy goodness
