American in Paris

Found this dress the other day on the racks at Goodwill and was sure after I tried it on that I wouldn't like it. But the vertical stripes, plus fit and flare style spoke to me. Once on, I actually really loved it. The top part of the dress is ribbed with boning to give it a corset fit on top. I love how the print gives it the feel of a drop waist, which elongates my very short torso.
 
I wore it for church today and started out just wearing the neck scarf with it.
Before I left the house, I decided I felt a little too bare for church, so I pulled the scarf in front to cover my chest.

 But then I noticed the low scoop back and decided a sweater would be good too.
 Any time I see a fit and flare dress with vertical stripes, I think of American in Paris. Adore that movie.
