Spring Essentials: The striped dress


Ciaa - Fashion blogger at
What are some of  your Spring essentials ? I have a long list, which includes a beautiful Striped dress.I got this one from Gap since last Fall but never wore it. It’s an XL and I absolutely love the fit.  The heavy material makes it perfect  for Spring.  Seriously I don’t know if you can call the weather we’ve been having lately Spring. Only in Canada you can get a tan at the beach one day and have frost bites the next.
There has not been a time when I enjoyed writing a post like this exact moment. I am sitting in the train going to Montreal for Black Fashion Week. I usually go for the plane or drive there in case I am with my family, but this time I wanted to know how it felt to just sit in the train looking at the nature care free. The good thing is i did not have to go through the freakin’ security checks like the airport.

    Great dress and Montreal is a beautiful city with many nice shops. The spring is a great time to go and visit because the dreaded winter is over and everyone is wearing the clothes they bought but could not wear due to the cold.

    That dress is great for Spring and I love the quarter sleeves on you. Who says a girl of a certain size can't wear stripes?? NOT me. Enjoy your trip and post some pics.
