Pulp Fiction Switch-Up

I have a thing for white dresses, but being total klutz makes me fearful to wear it. I have four white dresses and this is the latest via a sale steal from ASOS:  Dress:  ASOS^ Cardigan:  South (via Very ) Leggings:  South (via Very ) Peep-toe Sandals:  Primark^ I wore this to the Pulp Fiction Geek-Out, at The Prince Charles Cinema (i.e my second home) and everyone was encouraged to dress up for the screening. It would have been classic of course to go with a black suit and crisp white shirt, but as you know, I'm not a fan of black as the main colour of an outfit, so I decided to switch it up with a white dress and black accessories.

I will never understand others need to try and police how we dress our bodies, so I was more than happy to put together an outfit that checks off so many from the "do not wear..." list: Dress:  ASOS  (Limited sizes available) Cardigan:  H&M (Grey currently not available online, but should be in store) Sandals:  Dorothy Perkins^ Bag:  Gifted Sunglasses: Spitalfields Market Horizontal stripes? Check Exposing the belly? Check Light colours? Check  Happy and confident? Check!!!! I love this outfit and it was inspired by Girl with Curves who recently blogged in this dress herself. I fell in love with the colours and the cut-out along the belly, and screams of an outfit for jumping in a rowing boat with a big hat and a glass of something fizzy.
