LOST: striped dress, whereabouts unknown


Consider this blog post a tree with a xeroxed photo stapled to it. A striped dress, last seen on AnneMarie Luck's mom in 1980, has been missing for decades. But all hope is not lost. If you've seen it in a thrift store or on an adorable twenty-something vintage-hoarder, please call authorities immediately so it can be returned to it's rightful owner, AnneMarie's body.
AnneMarie writes:
"My mom kept lots of her now-vintage clothes for me, but how I wish she had kept this particular outfit – even the bold horizontal stripes couldn’t spoil how lovely she looks. And those shoes – not very practical for feeding ducks with your tiny-tot daughter (that’s me, by the way) but since when are shoes meant to be anything but fabulous? I also love her Farrah-flick hairstyle, although she insists she hates her curly hair and has spent a lifetime trying to get her hair to be straight."

Chevron stripes are so much easier to find from that era but I came across these:
