Striped Out

Striped @ Street Stylista

I know alot of people avoid wearing stripes in any form but I actually do like stripes. Although it does sometimes make you look way wider than you actually are. Guess it's more of a love-hate thing going on.

This is a pretty cool dress/skirt. Some optical illusion thing going on here. I like.

Love these! The gradient-striped long (<3) skirt and mixture of vertical and diagonal striped dress puts a playful spin on normal stripes. Such fun pieces!

And of course, striped blazers, jackets and cardis! Definitely a standout piece. <3!

i do like stripes, but like you mentioned, i'm a bit afraid of wearing them. i have a 'flat' rather than 'round' body type, and i'm just scared that stripes will make my body appear wider :S

wouldnt mind trying the striped blazer/cardi though...

I'm such a sucker for stripes! But sometimes I fear they make me look much larger than I am.

I was stopping by cause I noticed you commented on Nicole of Gary Pepper Vintage's post "Bohemian Child" and just thought I'd mention I made a DIY rose garland inspired by her.
