#OOTD: Striped Sheath Dress

Casual OOTD: Striped BB Dakota dress with Cuyana Small Carryall Tote. keiralennox.com

I have a love/hate relationship with this BB Dakota striped sheath dress.

Last year, someone photographed me wearing it at an event and posted it to Facebook, and it was, well, unflattering. I screenshot the pic and texted it to my girlfriend with something along the lines of, “I’M GOING TO BURN THIS DRESS!”

(I didn’t.)

On another occasion when I wore it to the flower shop with flats, one of my regulars, who’s in his 80s and always gives it to me straight, told me I may be better off “not wearing that again.”

(Did I listen? Nope.)

Despite the fact that this dress’s boxy shape and horizontal stripes break all The Rules For Hourglass Petite Ladies and may make me look like I housed five personal pizzas, I can’t let it go! It’s so easy and comfy, and sometimes that just trumps everything.

(Style blogging at it’s realest.)
