In Search of Stripes

For nearly three years now I've been searching for the perfect striped dress without success.

Ideally it should be black & white, round or slash neck (not v or scooped), preferably long or 3/4 sleeves, but I'm flexible on that detail.

Inspired mainly by this.


with a touch of her



and not too much of this


The closest I've come is this from American Apparel.




Unfortunately it is One Size Fits All, and whilst it does fit, it fails to flatter.
The search continues.
If you see anything suitable let me know.

What do you think of the H&M one?? A lot of people have bought it on the WDYBTW thread have you seen it? It's pretty sim to the AA one (I *think*)

If it is the one I've seen, the white stripes are bigger than the black, so it is a bit too white for me. But thank you for the suggestion.

I suppose I should have said that I'm being very fussy about this - which is probably why I still don't have one after 3 years!

The top photo is great, so I wonder if you could get the same 'look' with the right hair, shoes and makeup even if the dress wasn't quite perfect? Assuming it's the sixties effect you're after...

Yes, the sixties effect is pretty much always what I want! The photo is of the Biba shop.
