Black and White Retro Cocktail Dress for a Fall Wedding

This dress was a part of my post on wedding guest dress picks for my friend Wendy, because she looks fantastic in black and white, I like of Parisian style when I think of her, She likes fun prints, needs something she can dance in, and also likes retro styles. This, to me fits all of those reqirements!

Black and White Retro Cocktail Dress

Black and White Dress: Rose Bubbly Dress in Noir  from www.modcloth.com | Striped Peeptoe Heel from  www.whitehouseblackmarket.com | Black and White Bracelet Set from www.whitehouseblackmarket.com | Black and White Earrings from www.whitehouseblackmarket.com | Black Clutch from Nina

 

I love this dress because it’s a modern take on retro style, the silhouette looks supremely flattering and fun to dance in, and the little black and white dots call to mind the bubbles of champagne, and just a fun look that seems to wrap up 1950s glamour, Chanel-ish black and white style, and a beautiful flouncy dress that is sure to get compliments.

I paired it with some subtle black and white accessories, a vintage-y purse added the striped shoe for even more boldness and a retro-stripey touch, but you could also certainly just wear plain black pumps, or some fun pale pink or red heels to set off this look.
