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...

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

  3. 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!)

  5. 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.

  11. 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.

  27. 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...
