Dress of the Day: Nautical striped dress from Rare Fashion


There’s a very fine line between love and hate sometimes, and dresses that can have the word "nautical" applied to them tend to skate very close to that line. Which is why we know some of you will hate our Dress of the Day, which is this striped red red belt dress from Rare Fashion, and others will love it. As for The Fashion Police, well, we’d happily lose the corsage, and we think it’s a little bit "costumey", but if we ever need to go somewhere with a pin up girl theme, we’ll definitely be keeping it in mind.

Which side of the line are you on?

    Although I like the dress, I still think the belt and buttons are a bit too busy. I’d get rid of the belt and totally love it then. This way its not winning me over, sorry..

    I’m not loving it at all.
    Normally I go crazy for the cute little details (lace, buttons), but I think they actually turn me off of this number.
    Yeah, yeah they do.

    I love the way it’s made, but I absolutely hate the stripes on top. I think I would love it much more if it were one solid color. But since it’s not, I’m thinking I hate it right now.

    I would totally buy that and wear it for the days when I really wanted to feel like Priscilla Lane. Great choice!

    I’d love to wear this dress during the rehearsal dinner for a nautical themed wedding I am planning. Anyone know where I could find it?
