Retro White Dress Outfit + Tobi Haul

White dress c/o Tobi | Aldo kitten heels | Sole Society ‘Vivian’ sunglasses

This spring I’ve been doing something more brave than usual: I’m wearing white. I love the way white looks in an outfit, but when you’re as much of a hazard to yourself as I am, wearing it is a big risk. It once took me 0.3 seconds to ruin a brand new light-coloured blouse with soy sauce. So am I being brave or foolish? You decide.

Anyway. The kind folks at Tobi recently reached out to me to collaborate with them. I’d heard of Tobi and even (online) window shopped a few times, but for whatever reason never placed an order before now. They have such a wide variety of styles, from trendy to classic pieces. And everyone gets 50%(!!!!) off their first purchase, which is wild.

I was able to pick out a few items, and now I get to show you the goodies I got and how I styled my absolute favourite piece of the bunch.

If you’ve stuck around for my outfit posts for a while, you know I swoon for a bit of retro flair. This dress was absolutely love at first sight. It’s a textured white skater dress with a few sheer(ish) panels. It hits me right below the knee, and nicely cinches in at the waist.

It makes me feel like I should be at a fancy garden party, with a glass of champagne in my hand.

(If you’re spillage-prone, don’t worry. The dress also comes in black.)

To complete the look, I styled the dress with my ol’ faithful nude peep-toe kitten heels (that are so well-worn I recently had to get them re-soled at the cobbler), white Vivian cat-eye sunglasses from Sole Society, and simple pearl stud earrings.

I obviously can’t link to my Aldo shoes that are a million years old, but here are some similar pairs I could find! 1 | 2 | 3 | 4

Here’s a closer look at the beautiful texture and slightly sheer quality of the dress. (But don’t worry, the sheer-ness isn’t over any of the important bits – those are well-lined.)

Now let’s get into the other two Tobi pieces I chose.

This baby blue spaghetti-strap dress with neckline detailing instantly made me think of Cinderella, because of the beautiful colour. Add a black choker and throw your hair up with a headband, and your modern-day Disney cosplay is ready to go.

It’s quite a short dress (particularly if you’re leggy), and has pretty, petal-like scalloping along the bottom.

Last but not least, I picked up this gorgeous burgundy chiffon crop top. It’s light and airy and will pair nicely with a high-waisted pencil skirt. Burgundy is one of those colours that looks spectacular on anyone of any colouring, in my opinion.
