More stripes. This stripe dress, though, may be my favorite. It features a flowing skirt and drapey overlapping detail on the front.
I bought it last year to wear to a wedding rehearsal dinner. I was even willing to pay the full price of $98 for it (because it was a last minute purchase before jetting off to a destination wedding). Luckily, a sales associate surprised me with an unanticipated 20% off discount. The dress has certainly earned its keep because the cost per wear continues to shrink as I regularly pull for it from my closet.
Today, the dress anchors a casual, St. Patrick’s Day look. It is worn with a green, short-sleeved cardigan and black peep-toe wedges.

Since we are going green today, I thought I would check to see if anyone else has been lusting after the Cole Haan Vintage Valise tote. I have been secretly hoping that nobody buys the bag, creating an overstock, so that the off-price retail goddesses could swoop in and make it available to bargain shoppers. No such luck though. I think it has sold out already.
