I first came across the clothing line, Built By Wendy, last week after a couple of co-workers came back to the office lugging armfuls of clothes from the store’s bi-annual sample sale. I was immediately hooked and made a special trip to her store on 3rd Street. Her line is simple and clean, and is founded on her aptitude for adding special detailing to every piece she makes. This Schoolgirl Dress is far from your popular Halloween costume, instead using tiny sequins in lieu of a collar and a thin strip of sparkle along the bottom. The unstructured, yet slim fit is a perfect date outfit and if paired with sky-high heels and lip gloss, will certainly play into the schoolgirl look, minus that whole knee-socks thing.
