This dress is surprisingly flattering for having horizontal stripes.
Stripes can be tough because they can inadvertently add width to certain areas of your body.
But this dress is gathered at the waist on one side, so the stripes are pulled together creating an hourglass figure. And I thought, "If the dress is in an hour glass shape on the hanger, it will be a winner on."
Dress: The Loft Outlet (Spring 2012)
Scarf: Target (Spring 2012
Earrings: Francesca's (Spring 2012)
Watch: Target (Spring 2012)
Bracelet: Sak's off 5th (outlet) (Spring 2012)
Wedges: Gap outlet (Spring 2012)
All of these items came back with me from my annual Girls Trip with my mom and sister. And they were all great deals!
I can't remember the price of the dress, but I think it was around or under $30.00. The scarf was $14.99 at Target AND the watch (which is a knock-off and almost completely identical to a Fossil watch) was $14.99.
The bangle came from Sak's off 5th. We walked in there randomly while we were perusing the outlets and my sister and I both snagged a bangle for ourselves. It's gold, but pairs well with the rose gold watch.
*sidenote: My sister just taught me that you can mix metals and wear rose gold + regular gold. ::epiphany!::
And the wedges came from the Gap Outlet. More often than not, Gap and Gap outlet are a complete waste to shop at for me. I feel like the quality of their clothes has gone down. Shirts don't feel as nice as they used to, and don't survive in the washing machine.
But just like Target came out of no where a few years ago and became one of my favorite stores, Gap may turn around as well.
