Vintage stripes always in style

It’s not traditionally beautiful. It can look even a bit frumpy on the hangar. But this $1 thrift store vintage pinstripe dress shines when you slip it on.

I don’t know the back story of this dress, but I’d like to imagine that it traveled the world with it’s previous owner (decades ago – a world that looks much different than today). A lifetime later, I’m giving this long-sleeve pinstripe dress a new outlook.

Yes, that’s a dumpster behind me. Fitting, since I have a wandering eye for dumpster finds.

This dress is drawn to the beauty of ugly (first dumpsters, now dingy downtown alleys).

Pair with brightly colored heels, to add a pop of color. Or dress it down with boots (as I did, when I comfortably walked the streets of Rome and Prague). It makes a perfect travel dress.
