    Love the striped top! Need to find dresses for the older gal that don’t look like 40’s housedresses and don’t show wrinkled cleavage. Of course that’s not me. Just curious…

      If a tank dress isn’t your cup of tea, I’d look for one with cap sleeves, a blouson waist and straight skirt. Look for a cotton that isn’t too flimsy.
