Casual Friday/Breaking the Rules

TGIF!!! Woo hoo!

So since I’ve been breaking my fashion rules this week, I figured why not go all the way?! Stripes were one of my fashion “no no’s” because they supposedly made you look wider. So again being a good follower, I avoided stripes until this dress. I love this dress because it’s comfortable and figure flattering. The gentle ruching and tie on the side help smooth out my tummy area. The black and white stripes are classic and great for a first time wearer of a striped dress. I added my new Nine West red mini platform heels for a pop of color.

Are stripes in your future? Have a great day!

Dress: Jones NY

    LOVE! One of my fave outfits to wear is a horizontal striped top with skinny jeans (2 no-nos in one!). Every time I wear it I get asked if I’m losing weight. Talk about a mythbuster!

    OMG – that dress is everything! And the shoes with the yellow polish – you totally rocked that. I’m trying to resist searching for this dress, LOL! But I have 3 striped pieces already, so I have to stop….right?
