I Got Stripes

I thought we’d start things off

with the favorite dresses of my collection.

First up, green and white vertical striped dress.

If I remember correctly, I stumbled upon it at a Salvation Army.

From the cut of the dress with the drop-waist  I’d place it coming from the 1920s,

but the fact that it has no tag and is in almost perfect condition

gives me reason to doubt its authenticity.

That being said I could totally see this as an 80s dress.

Punked out to the maximum extent,

bigger edgier boots than the ones I adorn in the picture,

mohawk, bright green eye shadow, and purple lips!

The fabric is so smooth and silky

but not silk, its much sturdier, maybe polyester!

I need to hone my fabric identification skills.

I’m going to ask around and see if I can figure it out.

None the less this dress is a great asset to my wardrobe.

It can be dressed up or down, worn day or night,

to casual fun times, or a party!!

Give me your thoughts!

What decade would you place it in?!

Where would your wear it?!

Love it or hate it?!

I want to know!
