#OOTD: Striped Sheath Dress

#OOTD: Striped Sheath Dress

03/15/2016 24 Comments

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.)

    I totally understand the horizontal stripe box dress problem, haha. I myself have that same relationship with one of mine! but you make it look really good, and those shoes are perfect! I wish I could find good sandals but it’s pretty hard when you wear a size 5 and have feet that look literally like little boxes. haha. :)

    I’d say 50% of my closet is made up of “no-no”s …so long as you’re comfortable and you feel good rocking it, it’s all good ;)

    That’s so pretty on you! The length is great and your figure is wonderful!

  • ForkInPage 03/16/2016 at 8:50 am

    First off, you look absolutely marvelous in it. The picture was probably a bad angle and the customer was probably not as trendy as he was in his hay day.. heheh

    But when I saw the picture I was just going to ask how you pulled it off so well. I have a dress shaped like that and I look like horrible box troll in it. Comforting to know I’m not the only one who has trouble with this shape.

    I like this on you. I would add a long necklace to break up the Stripes and add a vertical line, a vest would also do that.

  • Suezanne 03/15/2016 at 10:17 pm

    Well, I think cameras have bad angles and can make any of us look yuck!! The 80 year old has bad eye sight🙊 Dress looks great. Plus it’s not what you wear its how you wear. Wear it with confidence and you will rock it.

  • Mom, Miles, and Mishaps 03/15/2016 at 9:45 pm

    I think it looks great on you!! Keep wearing it!

  • lexrayn 03/15/2016 at 9:16 pm
