experimenting with extremes. stripes.

put stripes on something and it's likely to catch my attention.
my love for stripes goes beyond clothing, though.
i love muscle cars and big trucks.
throw on some racing stripes and it'll bring me just as much excitement as finding a pair of gucci shoes...
on sale...
in my size...
with an additional 75% off...
and a free gift with purchase.
now, rev that engine and it's sure to make me go gaga.

  4. Awesome- stripes upon stripes! I'm a huge stripe fan myself, but I've never paired them before. I used to have these denim and tan striped pants, they were awesome... but the bottoms frayed away and I had to part with them...

  16. This looks SO GOOD! I love that striped top. It's so parisian chic! The jeans with the multiple button on the pockets is an added surprise. I wish my dany platforms would arrive from the US. It's been stuck on sea and I've been drooling over yours in every outfit post. Thank you for the birthday greetings :) Have a great weekend!

  25. Another car lover? I have to admit I'm a sucker for old muscle cars. My favourite has got to be the Corvette Stingray from the 70's. I spend half the time watching Dazed and Confused drooling over all the awesome cars and trucks hah.

    Speaking of cars... Do you keep a spare pair of shoes for driving? Do you drive in heels like these? CAN you drive in heels like these? Hah.

  28. Mixing stripes is not a easy thing to do. You did it very well. It does not look cartoonish or crazy. I like it.

    Maybe we can follow each other?
