I heart stripes.
I'm always fairly cautious of the cut of any clothing with stripes since they can be unforgiving on the ole curves.
So when I saw this silk shift dress at Forver 21, I wasn't sure I could pull it off.
It was a little harlequin court jester. Plus it was just a smidge too long and too relaxed through middle. Not ideal for someone with a thick waist and legs that are holding up.
Debuted the dress in question this weekend.
Paired it with Tory Burch booties. For a little height and even more edge.
Then I added my favorite Zara belt. I've decided it works with 99.9% of my wardrobe. See how it completely reinvents the shape of the dress and the feel of the look.
Then finally I added some leather - a BCBG jacket and Chanel bag. Toughens up the look while pulling it all together.
All day walking around with my mom, I felt very London mod chic.
And like a bit of a preview of Miu Miu Resort 2011.
The dress will be perfection with any one of the Miu Miu resort shoes I've got my eye on.
