Candy Stripe Dress

There are few things better than a go-to piece in a girl’s closet. This candy stripe dress is sweet, girly, and fun, which is exactly why it’s been making appearances all summer long. Is anyone else guilty of not wanting to wear anything else? I can’t seem to find another dress that I love just as much this summer!

When I first saw this candy stripe dress online, I went back and forth wondering if I would even wear it. First, it’s really pink. (Fun fact: I used to detest pink! Ironic, right?) Second, I haven’t worn a dress in this shape for years. Something about the A-line cut with short sleeves reminded me of something my mom would force me to wear when I was five. But alas, I got over myself and got the dress.

And gee, I’m so glad I did!

This candy stripe dress has been my go-to for church and for summer parties. Petite gals, I’ve mentioned this website before, but seriously. They make dresses that are absolutely made just. for. you. This one fits perfectly, as do all the other dresses I have from them such as this yellow dress and this embroidery dress. If you love the idea of having cute clothes custom-made just for you, you’re in luck, because eShakti is offering a special discount code for The Bella Insider readers. Choose whatever base design you want, enter in all your measurements, add your personal customizations, and enter the code “thebellainsider” for 10% off your order until 7/24. Shopping tip: don’t worry too much about the cut of the dress. Focus on the type of fabric you want first. You can tweak your design afterwards!
