It's been a very long week covering Marymass...long and trecherous, so when I laid my eyes on this 60's style tardis dress...well, I knew I had to post it. I'm usually not a fan of bright blue....certainly not those leggings, but the dress...of yes this dress really strikes a chord with me. It looks so easy to wear and I can see it being fairly easy to take it from day to night...and I can't help it but I totally swooned at the little key zip detail...and the pillbox hat.
The dress is designed by Tara Reich, a recent fashion graduate of Columbia College Chicago who wants to bring hi-fashion to nerds and wants to create pieces that allow people to show off a love of a fandom without wearing a t-shirt of a costume.
Of course the Doctor Who collection is my favourite using vintage inspired cuts with wools, silks and tweeds creating wearable pieces.
Despite not wanting to make her pieces costumey, the TARDIS dress will obviously have a shit-ton of recognition in the U.K, but that doesn't put me off wanting one.....maybe sans leggings and maybe the pillbox hat for special occasions...but the dress is pretty much made of dreams. It also makes me kind of happy there is a darker navy blue version of the dress....and both come with pockets.
