The perfect stripy dress

I am in an absolute need of a stripy dress for spring. I can only imagine how I would jazz it up with colorful accessories: necklaces, scarves, a good satchel bag and those fabulous colorful bangles by Sonia Rykiel for H&M.

It must be made of jersey or cotton and flexible enough for cycling. And the stripes could only be blue and white.

There are 3 contenders:

Dress no 1: long Acne dress – the obvious problem with this dress is that it is long but I could cut it and maybe even make an extra skirt out of it.

Dress no 2: Alice by Temperley – wonderfully draped, the right kind of stripes, not too short not too long. I love it so much I got it booked at Net.

Dress no 3: Alexander Wang T (if jane, thanks for posting it) – wonderfully clingy and the perfect timeless cut.

And now for the accessories. Lots and lots of color, ideally scarf or bangles. Comfy flats and a satchel.

I love my Church’s shoes so I wouldn’t mind them in a different color.

I really think this is the winner.


I went, I got an excellent service, I bought.

Autumn set no 2


I couldn’t resist a little play time this morning.

The coat on the model is from A.P.C.; the coat in the middle is Fahri, I love the military look of it.

Shoes are black Church’s brogues and brown shoe boots from Pedro Garcia.

Bag by Chloe.

Scarf is from Maje and hat from the fabulous La Cerise Sur Le Chapeau.

EDIT: After a  (half)day of deliberating I have decided on the Church’s shoe. Monday lunch break will be shopping time!
