Checker-dress

This summer my number one favorite dress has been this red and white vintage checker one. I've probably worn it once a week, and as usual my staples have a hard time making it to the blog. This dress evokes everything that is summer from its cheerful picnic pattern and the perfectly worn in fabric to the fact that I can just as easily wear it to lie in the park reading a book or for work.
My mom snapped these the other night when she came to visit and she thought the building behind me was great. We assumed that it was left over from some other time and place, but according to Google it was a working clubhouse for the Powhatan Democratic Club as recently as April.

    I'm wearing a similar dress today, but pink. :) I love the backdrop, it's always great when you can get someone to do outfit shots in the city. And I think the bricks go perfectly with the red checkers.

  8. much prettier than a picnic, that's for certain. How cute. I love old buildings. Was it a "clubhouse" for adults then? I wonder what sort of "clubhouse". . .
