A Few Striped Dresses

Yesterday I posted about my disappointment with Stitch Fix #7, where I’d specifically asked for clothes for an upcoming trip to Alaska.

The Fix just really missed the mark, and ultimately everything got sent back before I could chicken out, change my mind and buy something I didn’t really need/want/like.

To be fair I already have more than my share of winter-y clothes that would be right at home in Alaska, with the possible exception of things to wear to dinner, especially on the more formal nights.

Yesterday I also opined that I would have loved to have received a cold weather dress in the Fix.

The one that I had in mind was this striped number from Hanna Andersson:



Check out the cute back zipper:


I envision this styled exactly as above: funky glasses, boots, dress.

The main thing I worry about with this brand – known mostly for its kids’ clothing – is that the dress is just too mom-ish (read: frumpy) in real life.

Boden has a cute contender, also featuring exposed zippers:


It comes in a few striped choices, but I like the solid black the best:


Again, the Frump Factor is hard to discern online.

This Maison Jules dress is currently on super sale, but it’s probably not realistic for cold nights given the sleeveless style:



While not striped, this Madewell dark blue dress seems to get what I’m going for:


Here’s what it looks like on the model:
