The Perfect Wall for the Perfect Dress

When I saw this rainbow striped dress online at Anthropologie, my jaw dropped! It was such a fun pattern with all the colors and the wavy striped print! Much like the dress, my jaw also dropped when I saw this fabulous wall! I found it on Instagram, which is where I get a lot of my inspiration for locations to use for my photos. Luckily, someone had already asked where it was located and so I didn't need to do much leg work to find it. I was surprised to find out that the location wasn't on the side of a  hip boutique or coffee shop but, rather, on the side of an Albertson's supermarket! If I lived in the area, I would do all of my grocery shopping at this supermarket just to see the wall...and maybe use it as an excuse to take some photos!

This wall occupies the entire side of Albertson's supermarket, so it's pretty big! What I love most about the wall is that if you look at it closely, it's not just a bunch of wavy abstract shapes and swaths of color: it's actually a depiction of Los Feliz, which is the city where the mural is located. The mural also depicts the Griffith Observatory, which is visible from Los Feliz. I was so pleased that this dress turned out to be the perfect complement to my new favorite wall! Now, if I could just convince my local supermarket to follow the example of the Los Feliz Albertson's and put up a fun mural in my neck of the woods, I would be set!

  1. This whole outfit is making my heart sing! It's got such a fabulous vintage vibe. Love shirtdresses. They're so classic. And this one has a bit of a twist with the diagonal stripes at the bottom. Beautiful colors in the stripes. And the cute bag, sandals and sunglasses scream 60s Mod. That wall was the perfect backdrop. Brilliant!

  2. Oh the lines on the dress are so bright and fun! I love it paired with the green heels.

  3. Your dress is gorgeous and fun! I love your background!
