Question: White Dress

Basically, this is draping, gray, skirts, garment flow, layering, leather, leg baring, black, zippers and deconstructed done right.
And Ive realized, from all of these pieces, that I need a pair of cream high heels, because apparently they go with everything.

By the way, Im on the search for the perfect white dress. Simple, nothing too elaborate. Just something that is layer-able but also can be worn by itself. Any ideas?

This show was definately draping at its finest. I actually thought that same thing about cream colred shoes/boots.

As for the dress, UO is having a sale so maybe you could try scoring some deals there. Or one of the rib mini shift dress at AA. pretty generic stores, but they're good for basics.

I love the draping, especially of the 2nd on the left. This is a cool collection.

Oh my what fantastic looks... Mmm for a white dress, something like American Apparel's U-neck dress comes to mind (:

In response to your comment, the scans were made by your typical run-of-the-mill color scanner just throw everything you want on there and hit scan without closing the lid!

Guhhh the draping. The cream heels look almost boot-ish. And I especially love the second row center's, those shoes... or strappy sandals over slouchy socks? I can't even tell, but I love it. And that backwards-looking tank. Why is this all so amazing.

I say thrift for the dress!

That draping is making me drool. And nude heels have been on my wish list, but good luck finding those!
As for a white dress...maybe a slip or nightgown could double? Something vintage perhaps?
