Black & white striped dress – #fashionfriday

I got the black and white striped Lauren Conrad dress at Khol’s for six dollars! I know, right? I technically had a ten dollar savings card to use as well, but also had 2 other items that day as I mentioned in a previous postI finally got a chance to wear it on a trip to the Swan Island Dahlia Farm last month.

It was a bit long and dragged on the ground, getting the hem dirty by the end of the day. Perhaps it shrunk in the wash since then, but it doesn’t really look like it did, so I may just need to wear it with heels. It is a nice cotton blend material – thick, not that cheap thin see-through stuff we keep seeing in the stores nowadays. You know, the kind where you need to buy another shirt to layer underneath it (sometimes two or three!) in order to make it less sheer. No, this is the good stuff.

And the pattern! How fun is that design? Large blocks of striped material going every which way, creating a fun whimsical pattern. What’s not to love?
