I fell in love with this dress the moment I saw it through the storefront window of a local boutique. When you find a dress as unique and striking as this one, you’ve gotta grab it! This navy and white striped, hi-low ruffle dress is 100% cotton. The ruffle details and dramatic train takes things up a notch. This ain’t your typical cotton attire! The cascading ruffles are playful and flirty. The back tail moves beautifully as you walk and adds elegance. The long sleeves have a slight puff to them with ties at the wrist. Both trendy and on-point. This fall the red day bag is the new neutral and staple piece to have. This red leather Furla handbag is the perfect size and pop of color against the navy and white stripes. The silver chain and circular detail on the clutch is more contemporary which updates this more classic dress. For a laid back everyday look, you can easily wear this dress with a pair of wedges and red tote bag. This head-turner is best worn for a special daytime date or wedding occasion. I felt like Scarlett O’Hara in Gone With The Wind during this photo shoot. A belle from the south.

Dress $56 – Found at the charming and pretty shop, The Hen House! Pop on in to shop one of a kind artisan items and local fashions. Tell them the Window Shopping Diva sent you! You’ll be inspired and fall in love with this new boutique, located in Carrollwood, just as I have.
