OOTN> Stripe Blocking

I am sure you are thinking this dress looks familiar...well that is because it has been in my last two posts!  As you already know I am a big fan of stripes.  I thought I would try and incorporate two of my favorite trends this season: stripes and color-blocking.  Now, I know this isn't technically color-blocking but I thought with the black SPANX nylons and red boots it would kind of sort of be color-blocking.  So, I ordered this dress from Macy's with a gift card I received for Christmas from my lovely aunt and I absolutely love it.  

Dress Information: it is an American Rag from Macy's.  It is 100% stretchy.  The material is so soft and it has a nice neckline.  The colors in the stripes are gorgeous. If I could find a lot of my stuff after my move, I would totally go more Boho with it because turquoise and coral would be fab with this dress.  One quick negative, is the dress is much shorter than in the picture.  I know that with my physique, that I would shorten the dress naturally, but it was short to begin with.  I ordered the dress in a 3X and it is roomy throughout the body of the dress, so I would say it would fit up to a size 32 but maybe just more as a tunic.  The dress is currently on sale for $34.99.

    I've seen striped dresses around the blogsphere for some time now, so I'm thinking it's a trend I sure jump on board with!

  4. This looks loads better on you than on the model. Straight-on pics might help people shop better, but I would totally buy it from you - not from the model pic, as it looks WAY frumpy there.
