At the All-Local Farmers' Market today, his woman's dress garnered compliments everywhere she went. I suspect people appreciated a different take on stripes--and liked the way the stripes framed the frock.
The vibrant woman wearing the dress didn't hurt the cause either. She graciously posed with a friend for a shot, allowing me to show you the nifty detail--a side vent, also outlined by the stripe. The lovely lady told me, rather reluctantly, that she'd scored the dress at a consignment shop. That seems rather a find to brag about, if one were to ask me.....not that you did!
