Can it be true? Is Spring in the Big Apple FINALLY. FREAKIN. HERE?! Yes, yes it is.  And that means Fashion Friday is back.  No more will I freeze my ass off trying to get a good pic.  Instead, I’m sure I’ll be sweating my ass off but hey, I’ll take it.

Now, on to the outfit.  Stripes are showing up in a big way for Spring, particularly black and white stripes.  You’ve gotta be careful though, these stripes are not the most flattering.  However, because the dress is skin-tight with a unique hemline, it creates a more attractive shape on the body.

I was so thrilled to be able to hang in the West Village again.  What an amazzzzing neighborhood.

This outfit is TOTALLY Babe on a Budget approved.  The dress is around $30 from Necessary Clothing, the necklace is under $15 from Prima Donna, and the watch was a fantastic freebie from a recent video shoot I did with Guess Watches.  And oh yeah – the shoes! Also from PD, for around $25.  UNDER $100 from head to toe, and I bet I’d fit in juuuuust fine with those fancy chicks in the Meatpacking District ;)

 Wear a black and white body-con dress with a bright, bright necklace and gold accessories! They’ll hate to see you go, but they’ll love to watch you leave!
