Stars and Stripes

After nearly three weeks of traveling through China and Japan, it's good to be back in the USA. As fascinating as China was, and as magical as was our time in Japan, there really is no place like home! Today is the Fourth of July and although my sister and I shot this outfit in Lake Tahoe last month, I saved it for this week. It is such a cheerful dress, and the stars make it the perfect choice for a Fourth of July celebration! Since it is a bit on the dressy side, you could wear it to a cocktail party or wedding and let the good times roll. Admittedly, I found this on sale last year at the end of the season sale at Bloomies, but I have discovered a similar version in black for you. The dress has a peek a boo back; I am someone who cannot go braless, and the open back would have revealed a bra. I decided to have bra cups sewn into the dress and it worked out perfectly.  I wrote about the benefits of doing this little tweak last summer, and you can read all about it here. I am in love with my Gucci shoes, mainly because they are red,(my favorite color), and especially since the heel is fairly low which adds to its comfort.

I tend to dress thematically whenever the opportunity presents about you? Today it is stars and stripes!
