Mixed Stripes

I'm not exactly the retailer's core demographic, but once in a while, Forever 21 comes out with a winner of a piece that is wearable for someone who is not a trend-driven 18-year-old that wants to wear everything cropped, shredded and neon-bright. This dress is cotton with a cotton lining - perfect as a casual piece for warmer days. And unfortunately it's now sold out online, but I bet you can still find it in-store - or F21 also carries a flippy skirt and fun romper with this same print/material mix.

  4. Every once it awhile F21 delivers! It's just hard to sort through the massive amounts of clothes to find the great pieces. I'm loving this dress and the stripe print!

    1. I know what you mean - I only shop them online, I get way overwhelmed in-store!

  5. Great discovery! I am always on the hunt for a cute cotton dress with a cotton lining ... they are so hard to find but are perfect for warm-weather work wear.

    1. Me too! I don't get why a lot of retailers offer cotton dresses ... with poly linings. What's the point?!

    2. Yes, many a great cotton dress has been ruined by a poly lining! Maybe it's cheaper?

  6. I saw that online. Looks like something from Madewell on you. Your hair looks great, too.

  7. I was just walking by the store in the mall and that dress caught my eye. It is so cute, and it looks like it is made out of nice fabric. I've never stopped to look at a F21 window before. Nice choice. Although you may not be the right demographic, you are the right fit, with your tiny waist. The belt is perfect!

    1. Aw thanks - another reason I like this dress, the cut fakes a waist for me, hehe.
