Some people live by things they "hear", only to learn later in life it was a myth. There are lots of "fashion myths" such as the "never wear white after labor day" myth. I tend not to listen to them and just wear whatever I feel like. One myth I have never really figured out for myself is the horizontal stripe, does it really make you look fat?
I realized that on my body, I can't wear wide horizontal stripes they must be thin stripes. I was running errands this day and slipped on this short dress.
The stripes are really navy blue, its just difficult to tell from this picture. I love the nautical/sailor look for the summer with some wedges, always fun.
