Sartorial Saturday–Inspired by Barbie

I have wanted a Vixen by Micheline Pitt Dollface dress for literal years!

This beautiful black and white striped dress gets its inspiration from Barbie’s iconic 1959 black and white chevron striped swimsuit. Even though they are completely different articles of clothing, the connection is clear:

The options for accessorizing are endless because everything goes with black and white. This time, I added in a little burgundy to a black and white stack of Splendette duchess bangles, plus more black and white with an Erstwilder brooch, my favorite pillbox hat and lace gloves, and a Burgundy Yemak cropped cardigan:

Over the years, the Dollface dress has also been available in pink & white and blue & white variations. Each time this dress has come and gone from Vixen’s website, I’ve been filled regret that I didn’t order one…it didn’t matter which color, I just loved the style and design of the dress! When I heard that original colorway was finally making a comeback, I was ecstatic that I finally had a chance to add it to my wardrobe!

Like my other Vixen by Micheline Pitt dresses, it has a lovely full skirt perfect for twirling, and deep, deep pockets.

I love this dress, and if it was made available in other color combinations in the future, I’d think about adding another one to my closet!
