The story:

This is such a cute autumn-colored patchwork print dress in browns, black and white. 

We don't know what else to call this print but houndstooth, though it looks kinda like the exterior of those retro 60s, 70s factories or big blocks of london houses. Like something we've seen in Sesame Street. 

We love how patterns and prints can bring back memories, don't you? 

Oh and will you get a load of those gorgeous big and carved buttons!
