Cornflower True | Vintage 1980s slouchy loose-fit Indigo checkered dress
At first glance the colour of this dress looks like it's blue but when you look at it long enough, you'll realise it's actually more of a lovely indigo purple.
It is kinda of hypnotic with all its line, some thick some thin, and the little skips of triangles gives it a architectural vibe while keeping the silhouette soft and feminine.
Cute but serious. ;)
Zips up at the back.
Pinned?: No. But it was belted to show how it wears when worn with one.
