Wearing : 1000 Blue Stripes


Nothing says versatility like stripes do. Nothing says lazy dresser like stripes do. Nothing a lazy dresser loves more than buying versatile bohemian stripes online? Are you with me?

I took these pics yesterday before I turned my hair pink although I am wearing the striped dress again today with the Slouchy Angora Cardi in Grey (currently on sale) and a sunshine shawl with pink tones and it's all okay. Everything will be okay. Even pink hair is okay.

The Oversized Striped Dress has been a sell out for Bohemian Traders and They All Hate Us - twice! It's a winning style, a little longer in length and a little wider through the body to accommodate for you know, curves and stuff. It can be worn over tights or on it's own. Personally I like to layer it with my peter pan collar chambray shirt (with sweet boho wooden buttons).

The Striped Tee is equally as versatile and layer-able.

From the 5 pieces above I can get at least 5 different outfits which means no washing for a week. BAM. That's what I like to hear.

Wearing:

Oversized Striped Dress in Small
Boho Fringed Poncho in Blue (my current favourite thing and on sale)
Skyscape Chambray Shirt in size 10
Striped Long Sleeve Tee in Small
Black Skinnies in size 28


p.s we have sold out of the Striped Dress is Medium again but all other sizes are available. Medium will be restocked next week and ready to ship by Friday 13th. Pre Orders are now open!


EDIT: Hey dudes, If you'd like my actual measurements regarding sizing then just ask, It's no biggie (although my thighs might be). I'm consistently a CR size 10/12. I am ACTUALLY wearing an Australian size 10 in the denim, no lie. I'm 158cm tall and very well covered, as you could expect after growing and birthing 3 babies, YAY for me, you won't find me asking to change that little detail. Bohemian Traders sizing can be compared to Country Road sizing. When a garment is stated as 'oversized' then it is actually 'oversized' and I'd suggest you size down if you prefer a more conservative fit. TAH DAHHHHHH (spirit fingers)

  2. I am loving your skinny jeans however I am not sure about sizing, I am usually a size 11/12 (jeanswest) however you are wearing a size 10 and I do not feel I am bigger than you, I really don't know what size to order, do you have any further measurements?

    1. I'm a bit worried too.............I bought the dress in 'small', but probably now need an 'xs'...............hopefully I can return if it's the wrong fit and get the smaller size
