Little striped dress

A summertime favorite, the striped dress, hemmed to mini length is a weekend staple.

When a stranger complimented me on the dress and asked if it was J.Crew, I was delighted to reply that it was actually vintage, tagless, brandless, $10 from Twitch Vintage. How wonderful that it could pass for one of of J.Crew's overpriced frocks (that you know I love).

P.S. The blog shop has been updated - check it out!
