Seeing Stripes

Beyonce blew up the internet when she wore this dress a couple weeks back.  I fell crazy in love with it and was pleasantly surprised when I discovered it was both chic and affordable.  I was sad to see it was sold out online but rejoiced when I found it at the Topshop store in LA (victory!).

It’s an unassuming dress when you see it on the hanger, but when you slip it on, the mix of horizontal and vertical stripes adds flattering dimension.

You can really have fun with colorful accessories with this dress.  For me, I love the classic combo of navy & hot pink, so I chose to add a pop of color with my shoes & lipstick.  Next time, I’ll add a little sparkle with a fun bracelet.

    Can I ask what size you are wearing?

      Hi there! I am wearing a size 4. I see that Topshop has it back in stock (and on sale!) Let me know if you have any other questions 🙂

    Hi there!

    The dress looks so good on you! I just ordered the black version in the same size but now I’m worried that it will be too small, as I just found out Topshop sizes are smaller than typical US sizes. Did you size up or down for yours? Hoping mine will look as good as it does on you!!

    Thanks 😀

      Hi Rebecca! UK brands definitely run on the smaller side in my experience so I never size down. I’m usually a US 2/4 (depends on the cut) so I went for the 4 with Topshop. This dress is SHORT so another reason to be cautious 🙂 I hope you love it!!! Xo

        Thanks for such a quick reply, Christina! The dress looks like it fits you perfectly. I hope mine fits because returns to are a pain in the butt!

          P.S. You can always check Nordstrom; they carry some of the Topshop line and have free shopping and returns 🙂

            Ooh thanks for the heads up, I’ll definitely check back. I’m from Canada, so I’m not sure if free returns at Nordstrom’s applies to me!

            This may be really weird and feel free to say no… but would you be able to find out what the shoulder and bust measurements are for the dress? LOL!
