The Prettiest Stripes in my Closet

Last Sunday while I was waiting to pick up the bf, I stopped by a flea market to possibly meet my mom (did work out), but as I had no cash, I walked to the nearby trendy shopping area of Kensington to look for a bank. Unfortunately, Kensington Road is home to my favourite store in the city, Purr. Even just walking by (which I'm usually not able to do) cheers me up. The colours are so bright and the clothes are so pretty and just my style. I couldn't help but step inside when I noticed the sale sign in the window (they're everywhere, but I have no money!). The sale turned out to be a really great one and I hauled a load of clothes into the dressing room. Four made my list of "buyable," but as I don't have a lot of money at the moment, I decided to limit myself to one item. And this adorabled striped dress was the winner!

I love the bright summery colours (I'm still living in a summery wonderland and dreading the coming of fall. It gets really cold here!) and the stripes are definately the prettiest in my closet. And the pockets are just so cute. I really, truly am in love. Sorry for the quality of the photo, as I mentioned before, my camera is on it's last legs and hardly works.

Dress: Vero Moda; Sandals: Feet First.

Also, if you are in the US and have not yet entered Pudding and Pie and chickdowntown.com's BB Dakota giveaway, tomarrow is your last day!
