Stripes are kind of "in" right now. :P
As much as I enjoy trendy clothes, I try not to buy a whole lot because I am guaranteed to hate them within 2 years. And I never considered myself a "stripes" person (I really can not wear them in black and white - skin tone issues). But they've invaded my closet this summer. Against my will. Honestly.
Ok, so I do like this dress. I didn't buy it against my will. I even spent a little extra. It's so comfy, easy to just throw on and go. And I like the color block panels. A lot.
What I'm Wearing:
- Maxi Dress by Rainbow
- Earrings by Touchstone Crystal
- Sunglasses - NICOLE by Nicole Miller from jcpenney
- Flip Flops - 99 cents at Walmart :P
- Nail Polish - Spoiled by Wet n Wild "Hit the Brakes"
What trends have infiltrated your own closet? Have any come as a surprise, or against your will?
I'll admit that when the maxi dress first became a big thing 3 or so years ago, I wasn't so sure it would stick around.
But I like it muchly now.
P.S. I had a fabulous Canadian trip, I've spent the last week getting ready for cosmetology school (tomorrow! yay!), and I know have much to post here (pics of the wedding dress I made this summer, pics from my 1960s party in July, et cetera). I'll try and get to them soon. :)
