Stripes on Sale

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.

    Love the fit of this dress! I put a ban on myself too. But this might be an exception……lol

    You look amazing, I love your clutch! I've been looking for a multi colored purse to go with anything. I'm new to your blog and I must say I'm a huge fan. Looking forward to future posts!
