Stripes, stripes, and more stripes!!!

Hey Dolls,

I don’t know why I’ve been so drawn to stripes lately but here I am with another work OOTD featuring these bright stripes!!!


I actually wore this top as a dress (it really is a dress) on my birthday night to a comedy show and dinner!  I left my camera in the hotel room so I couldn’t take pics to show you all. :(  
So I figured why not show my blogger friends this dress as a work appropriate outfit!DSCN8517
This belt is pretty old!  I bought it from New York & Company about 6 years ago but it is one of my favs!


Are you guys doing anything for Cinco de Mayo?  I’m thinking Cantina Laredo? Margarita?


Dress:  Sweet Storm via Ross

Belt:  New York & Co

Slacks: Ross

Heels: Sam Edelman

Bracelets and Earrings:  Thrifted (The green bracelet is from Unique Boutique)

    Cute as a shirt, but as a dress, I bet it is killer! I'm still skeptical of stripes on me. You wear them well though.

    Adorable! I love the colors on the dress! I love stripes too! Lol…I also love curly hair! Please show your natural hair more often! :) I'm actually thinking of doing straight weave for a change. I hope I like it. I've never been to LasVegas! :(

    The straight hair does look nice on you, but yes! Big, beautiful curly hair is thee best! (Even though I tend to rock straight hair more – it's because my curls are bit dead these days, which is why I had to cut it. I'll be back to curly hair in due time.)The dual functionality of this dress is awesome! Who'd have thunk it could be work appropriate?! Great fashion skills, Trice. :)Oh, and congrats on your award! And I look forward to seeing pictures of your Mother's Day fashion show!
