I implemented a soft ban on purchasing new stripes this spring and summer. You probably didn’t notice since I bought lots of stripes this spring and summer. Ha. I’m convinced, though, that I would’ve puchased even more in the absence of the ban.
Anyway, I’ve been eying the Anthropologie striped day dress since it first appeared online. Stripes meet my favorite silhouette. I tried the dress on a couple months ago, but my size was already sold out in store and online. When I discovered recently that the dress had been marked down to $49.95 (originally priced at $78), though, I launched a nationwide search for my size again. Luckily, I located the dress in a store in Jersey, called the store, and placed an order with free shipping and no taxes.
