THAT STRIPED DRESS





belt - thrifted | bag (similar) - thrifted | bow flats - H&M 

When I saw this dress in the Dorothy Perkins sale, I had to have it.  It reminds me of that striped Prada dress that was everywhere last summer, although the colors in mine aren't as vivid.  But I don't care, it's super cute and I know I'll get multiple seasons' use out of it.  Today I wore it with a straw tote, sunnies, and cute flats, but come fall, I can see it paired with black tights, a pretty cardigan, and maybe my heeled oxfords or boots.  Now we just need some cool sweater weather to go with the cute outfit I've just thought up.  ;)

    Those stripes and colors are so of the moment. I saw this over on tumblr and loved it! You look great. Tell the Kid he's doing great with that camera!

  10. I just discovered your blog through Georgette at Grown and Curvy Woman. It seems you share my love of a good dress. In fact, I ordered this dress last month and haven't worn it yet. I was a little disappointed by how sheer the fabric is? Out of curiosity- what did you wear underneath and did you have any trouble with the sheerness?

  11. Hi Tashia! I definitely love a good dress, lol! Probably too much, actually, but anyway.. ;) I was a bit bummed to find that the dress wasn't lined, but I didn't find the dress too sheer to wear. I just wore my usual bike shorts underneath (it gets windy here in TX). When it gets cooler, I'll probably wear a slip or spanx under, for a bit more layering. Thanks for the follow, I love your blog! :)

  13. Thanks so much Katrina! I love the stripes, too! And I told the kid about your compliment, he got all embarrassed but had a huge smile. He's 10, so I'm assuming that's a good reaction? LOL :D
