I have not worn this outfit yet, but I wanted to put together an outfit for Chictopia's Make Life Juicy contest that expressed my style fully—girly prep with a trendy flair. I originally wore this dress for New Year's Eve. I love the poofyness and that it has a bow in the back. By wearing the striped shirt underneath it, I think I was able to express my love of contrasting elements. I think the best way to introduce a trend into your wardrobe, like stripes, is to pair it with something already in your wardrobe. Or in this case, I already owned the striped shirt, but by pairing it with the dress, reinvented the shirt.
