Never underestimate the power of stripes
Oh yes, that’s true. Stripes are always applicable in every look. At least, this is what I told myself when I went shopping and promised myself to only shop sale and bargains.. I ended up shopping the new collection as well. Just a little bit though. After all, there is no such thing as too many stripes so I see this as an investment! Got to tell myself something, don’t I?
Okay, an investment might be slightly overrated but this is a dress is one you could wear in many different ways. Since the weather is lovely in Holland I get to wear some of my summer outfits a little longer and I am wearing this as a summer dress. It might be September but I’m no longer looking at the calendar, only at the thermometer. I see myself wearing this later on with a black biker jacket, a pair of dense tights and chelsea boots when it gets colder.
The dress is black and the stripes are beige. When I bought it it said taupe, but it’s not that dark. I have added a belt to accentuate the waistline. It’s exactly on the cut seam between the top and skirt. The elasticated belt wears lovely and I like how it makes the dress more city chic. Such a dress is perfect for all seasons. This shape is very suitable for every body type. Would you wear this?
The dress was a real bargain even though it wasn’t on sale. I shopped it at Forever21 and I am wearing a size 1X. The scarf I already have for ages and once shopped it at a thrift shop. The handbag I got on sale a while ago, love the frills. The shoes I bought from Lesley from mylittlehappiness who was also selling her stuff at the Shop My Closet back in July. I love the tassels and gold accents. You know me, I love to match!
