Striped sundress

I'd been eying Gap's most recent offering for a striped sundress (on sale for $42), but when I found this older Gap model at the thrift store for $1, I decided I liked it even better.

Long live my obsession with breton stripes.

Navy stripes are very nautical, so it would only make sense for you to buy such a dress. :D Especially for only $1.00! Dang, I need to go to some thrift stores more often.

Lookin' good with the gold accessories, too!

I like this one better, too! Accessorized to perfection.

Lynne DeVenny said...

One dollar buys a lotta dress - wow! I actually find myself feeling a little guilty about new retail purchases, because I suspect I can find something similar, maybe better, and for certain, for a lot less at thrift and consignment stores.
