The Pinafore Dress...

Hi Guys,
Here is a quick post to show you all how we both style the staple item that is The Pinafore Dress. It may sound old fashioned but is a key feature on the rails of Topshop and River Island. In this post, we are both styling a burgundy Pinafore Dress due to the fact that here in London it still feels like winter and burgundy is very on trend.
So, Paloma and I had a brainwave, before we set our hearts on it, we would like to hear your thoughts on us starting ...cos it's The Bee's Knees Shop. It would start as a low key jewellry/accessories shop and then hopefully expand, but what do you guys all think of it, and what would you like to see on the online shelves?
Have an amazing week, Jess xxx

Style Icon- The Pinafore Dress: Alexa Chung
One of the most fashion conscious celebs out there, it's no wonder Alexa Chung is one of our style icons. The Pinafore Dress is seen being sported by Alexa Chung on numerous occasions, so whenever you're stuck for an outfit with this staple item, you know who to take inspiration from :)
