Dress in the City
The city of Milwaukee can often time feel like being in one big silent French film. You can almost hear the accordion playing a lovers tune as two strangers become acquaintances in the silence of an autumn stroll. The story pans out perfectly, as the Girl’s scarf is taken by the medaling wind. The Boy, fighting for her attention, saves the scarf just in time. Grateful for her favorite accessory’s safe return, Girl thanks Boy; Boy smiles, a twinkle in his eye; Girl smiles back suddenly aware of her knight in shining armor. Boy kisses Girl, Girl kisses boy; both fall madly in love and live happily ever after. While this ending may only be believable to the true romantic, the Parisian inspired fashion is very real, just like the dress the fabulous femme in this pic is wearing.
This French enthused outfit is the perfect addition to any fall wardrobe. The black and white stripes of the dress make for a bold statement while the combination of colors creates an instant classic. The tulip skirt is a flattering cut on any figure as it doesn’t hug the silhouette and lends just the right amount of flare without drowning you in yards of fabric. The silk top with jabot is perfect for the fall season as well as the office. Add a pair of gorgeous pumps or fashion forward ankle boots for a look that is tres jolie!
So if you are ever in doubt of true love and happy endings don’t get discouraged, simply dress the part of your favorite leading lady. With great fashion as your good luck charm, you’ll be sure to fall head over heels. But just make sure they’re your most fabulous pair because you never know when the wind might blow your way.
