Ann Taylor Etched Stripe Print Crossover Dress

Ann Taylor Etched Stripe Print Crossover Dress size M Mainsail Blue
 
On Model:
 
Ann Taylor Tall Etched Stripe Print Crossover Dress
 
I had to return some items to J Crew and right next door is an Ann Taylor.  So, I popped in.  On the mannequin was this dress but it was nowhere else in the store.  Went home, got on line, it was on sale $70, everything was an additional 30% off , reviews were good, why the hell not.  I am trying to find cute day dresses cuz I am about over shorts.
 
On me:
 
 I definitely fill it out a bit better.  The girls want to be seen.  I will either tack or most likely wear a camisole.  It is 93% Rayon, 7% Spandex
 
 Full overlap on the bottom

Hello Ladies
Detail.  Simple.
Profile.  Fits nicely under arm and no need for shapewear - don't want that for a day dress.
Middle stripe is where top meets bottom.  Nice job.  Everything lines up.
 
It is simple and flattering for my figure.  Keeping it.
 
View from my computer.  My cherry trees were beautiful while they lasted.  Storm came through and they are completely bare of all blossoms.

  1. I really like it on you, my shorts days are over too, the back of my legs have more dimples than Shirley Temple.

  3. I really love this on you. It's a sweet little dress but it's also quite a slinky little number because it accentuates your curves but in an understated way. A really excellent find.

    1. And vertical stripes to boot. Embracing my curves cuz they aren't going anywhere but down and some days out.

  4. I love that dress on you! Looks just like summer. Isn't funny how some dresses are way more comfortable than shorts but look way more put-together?

    1. Me too! It almost feels like summer here. Our spring season gets shorter and shorter every year.

  5. Great find at a fabulous price! I really like the colors on you. :)

    I'm around your age (I think) and I'm over shorts too. Just purchased 2 Maxi Skirts at full price at Anthro. Yikes!

    1. Baby your worth it. I do have my eye on a striped maxi at Anthro, not sure what it's called.

  6. I love the Tulip hem on this dress. Very, very flattering. Sexy looking, hugging you in all the right places!
    I gave up shorts in my 20's. not because of my legs, I just felt underdressed in them. They weren't me...all of a sudden.
    Makes gardening a bit tough, but I work around it.
    I used to love AT till they changed their fit model and her proportions differed from mine. I hate when that happens.
    Have a great day.
