Case Of The Stripes

18th February 2012

I’m afraid I have fallen ill…
They have yet to find a cure for my current condition … and I hope they never do!
These next few looks will be all about stripes and feature three striped inspired styles. Our first look features one of my favorite dresses, what I like to call “My Barbie Dress”. Lets take a peak!
 I remixed my “barbie dress” by layering it over a black and white long sleeve to shield me from the cold weather. 
 I also added a leopard belt to mix patterns and add some edge to a very girlie look.
Shirt: B&W striped long sleeve, H&M. Dress: Pink tulip dress, Zara spring 2011. Belt: Calf-hair leopard skinny belt, Express. Tights: Black, Capezio. Shoes: Mary Janes, Jessica Simpson. Jewelry: Idom Bangles, Kate Spade & All Wrapped Up ring/earrings, Kate Spade. 
This second Case Of The Stripes look is just peachy, with bold punches of some of my favorite colors for spring: cute corals and pretty pops of peach!

This fresh color was all over the spring runway and is being featured this month in Kate Spade products!
Its amazing when two pieces from different designers, different seasons and different years can come together to make a complete look! Thats what happened up top with this self-created peach stripe on stripe.
Top: Long Sleeve striped shirt: H&M, Spring’12. Jacket: Stripe Cropped 3/4 Jacket, J.Crew Spring’08. Skirt: White Tulip Skirt, Zara. Shoes: Brown Oxford Booties, Vince Camuto. Jewerly: Idom Bangles, All Wrapped Up Ring and Gumdrop Earrings in Flo Coral, Kate Spade.
I have still yet to recover from my current case of the stripes… This final striped look is a little bit girlie, flirty and retro.
I paired classically bold B&W stripes with bright pops of red and big bows for a vintage vibe.
Look familiar? you may remember this mock-off dress from my Spade Worthy Steals post!
