Summer stripes

Today was another brilliantly hot day, and I got around to adjusting the straps on this striped dress, so I'm happily wearing it again.

Earlier I went to the thrift store to drop somethings off, and *cough cough* came home with this vintagey Coach purse. They had another one too, the same but a little smaller in brown. I considered grabbing it to use as a giveaway - would that be something you'd be interested in? I could go back for it...

Totally, its vintage coach. I have a small love affair with coach. It grows even stronger when its on sale.

Vanessa said...

Impressed by the Coach find. It's super stylish, and I like the square shape. It seems very current, even though it's vintage. (Go ahead, get the other one... and draw my name while you're at it!)

Love the dress--it reminds me of a lollipop for some reason. Would you consider doing a tut for the rope bracelet? It looks really cool and I can see it done in navy, baby pink, etc.

Love the dress and bag! Such great colors.

This striped dress is just right for the last warm days. And the vintage Coach sounds perfect for a giveaway. I've got a vintage Coach bucket bag and the leather is still so soft and rich.

I would totally be interested in that as a giveaway! And I just love that anchor necklace with the striped dress.

I'm kind of hoping for this to be a cooler day because yesterday in New York was positively drippy. I have Coach bag similar to that one!

I love the mulitcolor stripes on that dress-- better get the wearing in before fall is truly upon us. Just spotted your MRKT sandals on sale in the navy color at DSW.com. Tempting...
