As I move forward with my blog, you’ll learn something about me. I really, really love wearing horizontal stripes.
Not simply because people told me my whole life that I shouldn’t, but because I actually think they are pretty flattering on women with curves. Fashion rules have said forever that if you have big hips (which I clearly do), you should never even think to wear them. If you agree with that, well, to each her own, but I’m very sorry for you that you will miss out on enjoying a wonderful print.
Anyway, I wore this particular dress in 2010 to FFFWeek L.A. It ended up being in a few pictures and I haven’t really worn it since because it’s quite distinct and I didn’t want it to be overkill. But I’ve been looking for a way to wear it again with a different vibe and I think I found it.
Enter polka dots. Take it one step further and put stripes and polka dots together. And then you end up with the final product which, in theory, would be an assault on your eyes. But in practice, I’d say, is one of my favorite looks so far.
