One thirty-five

Yellow blue striped dress Gap - Red flats Stradivarius - Red tote Victorinox 
For me striped cotton dresses are must haves. They are super comfortable in this crazy summer that sometimes hits 42C and I feel like I am about to faint. They're pretty much wash and wear and all you need to add is a fun bag or accessory and you're set. 
I've worn this one a lot, to a point that my cost per wear on it is about 1.35 USD, which is great and does not make me feel bad for giving it away. It's been around since May 2014 and I feel its suddenly feeling too short and too blah. While I do have an identical one in grey and yellow which I am keeping for now, I am certainly starting to look for its replacement.

Striped blue dress options:


The other day I thought about the highest purchase I have ever made on line. Got curious as I've seen six figure items listed and can only wonder who would buy a six or even five figure item on line. I would be concerned about it never getting to me (my country's postal system is almost non existent) and of course the authenticity of the item. Oh and most important, my credit card limit would not be sufficient. 

Hover or click on the below to see some mighty spectacular items at incredible prices...

Going back to the lux item purchase, I know I'd want I want to have the service that comes with a pricey purchase. The champagne that would be offered as I tried the dresses, the bags carried for me all the way to my car and such. Then again, that's just me.

I'd like to know what was your priciest on line purchase... and in case you're curious, mine was an antique and while it did not reach the five figure number, it has been my priciest yet.

I received this dress as a gift, I never wear it. It may be the length, the cowl neck or the print. I mean its been worn once here and that's it. I always say that I am going to style it correctly and get the best from it, but that day is yet to come... Are there any garments that you have "hope for" and wish for a better styling ?

Cowl dresses I'd rather have:

Pink and purple vintage dress made in Argentina, similar sans print, orange and fuchsia look alike 
 Nude heels Flexi, almost identical - Brown tote bag Coach 
This dress was last worn in 2011 and it use to be big on me. I purchased this vintage, Argentine made dress of thick polyester probably sometime around 2010 during a trip to Buenos Aires. Spotted it at a sidewalk stand at the San Telmo Sunday market, where you can usually find a lot of vintage and antiques. I recall the lady whom I bought it from. She was speaking really fast and kept asking me questions, it was kind of annoying but I slowly and quietly searched the clothes racks she had. She mostly carried vintage women's wear and it looked like she had emptied an entire closet from the 60's era on the sidewalk. It was quite a treat to search through.  Finally, I walked away with this dress and another light brown one. 
One of the things she asked when I was reaching for my wallet to pay her, was if I was looking for clothes for a 1960s movie production and when I replied "no, they are for me..." she gave me the oddest look ever.
