Structured Dress with Pinstripes

This pinstripe number by J.O.A. not only pushed my boundaries on dress form, but it shed light on one of my new favorite brands.  ShopBop featured J.O.A. on their coveted homepage last week, and although I had peeked at their extensive collection before, I've fallen head-over-heels in love.  With kicky details and structured forms, J.O.A. combines lace, prints, and laser cut-outs in a refreshing, modern way.

I tend to lean towards fitted, body-con shapes to showcase my curves, but as soon as this navy number was on sale, I couldn't resist.  What's the next piece I'm eyeing by J.O.A.?  This baby blue floral lace skirt.  YUM.
