Navy and Nautical

It all started with the Tibi Horatio Stripe Dress. You see I'm a sucker for anything striped..or navy...navy and striped really. So you can imagine how much I love this dress. But at $385, I thought I could turn this into a Splurge V. Save and find you a less expensive option. What I found was that there are so many cute navy and white striped dresses for your pleasure, in a range of prices. 

This Gianni Bini Roxanne Striped Dress from Dillard's is a reasonable alternative for $128.

Or you can look ship-shape at work for the bargain price of $49 in this figure-flattering wrap dress from Piperlime!

Regan sent me this as a possible rehearsal dress option, also from Piperlime. It's $216 and so cute! With a cardigan and a belt or a blazer, no one would ever know it's strapless (Yes, you'll be seeing navy, white, and some stripes in our wedding in August. Stay tuned!). 

Finally, for those of you with great gams, American Apparel added pockets to this short little number (which I'd have to wear as a tunic!). For $41, it's a steal as a dress or a shirt!

Which is your favorite?
