earning my stripes

A hooded parka makes this striped dress foul weather-proof, and it's more relaxed than a belted trench coat. The outfit is rainy day perfection--and I want to work it, too. I'm thinking I'll make a dress like this one, since I don't know where the one pictured is from (anybody?), with help from designer and my friend Minnie Mortimer, who masters the striped dress. I'll just add some leather squares for pockets and voila. I found a similar hooded parka here, for $100, no less.

I believe that it is a COS dress from a previous season.

I think it´s not exactly the one from COS (I am proud owner of one, and it´s longer, and with more stripes http://www.cosstores.com/Store/Women/Dresses/Leather_pocket_dress/46881-1850044.1#c-2053580), but close enough... ;)
