The Ticker Tape Dress

Often I will buy a piece of clothing that is just too pretty not to be photographed. This one is no exception, another Etsy buy from Sweet Bee Finds, I love the detail on it. It is the knee length that I am slowly coming around too, has beautiful draping and a print which reminds me of ticker tape. Remember footage of the Ticker Tape Parades made popular in New York City, most notably the inauguration of John F Kennedy in the 1960's?

I see what you mean with the ticker tape! I bought a top with that same pattern in pink even though it was a little big on me! I couldn't resist it.
