The year is 1995. I am nine years old, and like many other girls my age, my first celebrity crush is the dreamy and talented Jonathan Taylor Thomas. So naturally, when the film Tom and Huck (starring JTT) premieres, I beg my parents to take me. In the darkened theatre, I sit on the edge of my seat, spellbound, and imagine that I am playing the role of Becky Thatcher, instead of Rachael Leigh Cook! Now fast-forward to 2010. While my infatuation with JTT has passed, my love for Becky Thatcher's fresh, feminine look lives on, and this dress is the perfect, grown-up version of her sassy-sweet schoolgirl style. Replete with black and cream checks, this fully lined frock features a bodice full of feminine ruffles, a keyhole neck at the back, side pockets on the skirt, and a charming sash that ties at the waist. Paired with delicate gloves, a chic fascinator, and bow-adorned pumps, this dress will be my go-to garment for a spring full of picnics, parties, and ice cream socials! -Jennifer, Fashion Writer
