Thrift Find: Black and White Pinstriped 80's Dress

I went to my favorite Ethiopian restaurant and wore a black and white pinstriped 80's dress I thrifted about a month ago. I don't always dress up when I go. I'm just running low on clothes again. All that's left are the dresses. Laundry is a beast!

This is my first time wearing it. I liked the elastic waist, ruffles, and vertical stripes. It has a stain on the back though. There's a reddish mark right in the center back. I thought it would come out in the wash but nope! It's stained. I can't understand. How does one get a reddish stain in the center of your back? It's very odd. Wearing it anyway.

Luckily, I have this yummy green cardigan to hide the damn spot stain. I find it hard to just wear all black and white anyway. It's one trend I don't think I'll be able to do. I like a splash of color somewhere.

I bought the booties in January and this is my first time wearing them outside. You know how I talk about being fashion fickle? Well, it looks like these booties have fallen victim. First of all, they're not very practical for the wet snowy weather we've been having. Second, I haven't found the right outfit to compliment them. Guess that means another shopping trip is in order or throw the boots in the donate pile.
