I read American series books as a kid, and always came across the term 'Candy Striper'. I had no idea what they were supposed to be - they always gave out lollies to sick kids in the books. But in my head I had always imagined them in an outfit like this one. I have since been informed, however, the Candy Stripers usually wear pink (duh! Candy - Pink - Cotton Candy - get it?) The beauty of the imagination. Characters, hairstyles and clothes are whatever you interpret the words to be! Rad little clogs from the lovely Damsel Vintage. Oh and by the way - this is another Ahka Vintage dress - just in case you were wondering.
