I've been lusting after the bold striped Maxi's I've seen on the street, but had yet to find the material cut into a shape that I could wear. I was worried about this dress, but I love it so much I may keep it regardless. The belt doesn't look quite right on me, but the wide stripe and lovely fabric both look fantastic. The spaghetti straps are also adorable. I'm still on the fence, but leaning towards keeping it.
