A huge dose of color with this bright striped midi dress in Mexico!
I LOVE dresses, can you tell? I’ve always had trouble finding long-sleeved, modest, midi dresses that don’t cost a fortune! Anytime I’d find a dress that remotely worked it either was $300+ or had a slit, low back, see through, or some kind of issue. I have no problem paying a couple hundred dollars for evening dresses and special occasion dresses however I find it ridiculous that a casual summer dress is $300!! Therefore this past October when I was in Iran I decided to work with a tailor, Elham, to get a few midi dresses made that worked for me. I planned things with her in advance – styles, colors, fabrics – since I was only in Tehran for a two weeks. This colorful striped maxi dresses is one of the dresses she had made for me. I LOVE that the dress is checks of all my needs – sleeved, not see through, modest length, high neck, no slits! If you are like me and never seem to find the perfect dress off the rack, then I highly recommend finding a local tailor and working with them to design clothes that fit your life and budget.
Although this dress is custom-made, I managed to find a few dresses online that are similar in style and budget friendly! Shop my picks below!
