Modern Rococo

I got this dress at the tail end of summer last year, and didn't get a chance to wear it until now. It was one of those chance finds at Buffalo Exchange, I was in and out of the store in five minutes, and didn't even try it on, but this is too good to pass up. The stripes, the rococo bodice, and the sweep! The thing is massive. 

I feel like a modern day Marie Antoinette would be right at home in this frock, it's pretty grand when a gust of wind catches the skirt. I can imagine some silver hair piled high would accentuate it beautifully.

It's been so hot the past couple of days I only leave the hose for two things: Gym and breakfast. Otherwise leave me to hide in my dark slightly less hot house. 

I wore this to have breakfast with Julie at Broder, just before the heat set in for the day. It's one of my most frequently worn dresses, the perfect little striped shirtdress.
