Horizontal Stripes, Yay or Nay?

I do not own any piece of clothing in my closet with horizontal stripes on it (until now) because I've always felt that horizontal stripes make me look fatter/wider. Am I wrong?
With the pregnancy, I feel like a HIPPO.. and I wanted to find a long comfortable maxi dress. I didn't really find anything until the end of the day, I came across this dress by Michael Kors, (I love Michael Kors). I went into the fitting room, tried it on and loved it. It fit perfectly and the fabric was thin so it was really comfortable. I bought it.
So today...
I decided to wear it. Looked at myself in the mirror and I'm not as pleased. I don't know if it's the stripes or the colors, or if I'm looking at it too long but I'm starting to look like an inmate LOL. I tried to imagine myself wearing it not pregnant, and not sure if it looks any better.

The original price for the dress was $99.50. I bought it for $39.99.

I would of loved this dress much more if it was a solid color.

So, stripes... Yay or Nay?

Excuse my dirty mirror :P

Update on baby movements

It has been so long since I've posted an entry! 

Here is a baby update. Baby is healthy, and I've gained a TON of weight! I've been using Nuby's Belly Butter for stretch marks. But around 25 weeks or so, I noticed two tiny stretch marks appear next to my belly button. Must not be working, lol so I did a little research and found great reviews on Bio Oil so I purchased a bottle. Hopefully I see improvements.. not happy with what I'm seeing in the mirror :/
