What is it with me and stripes?
I seem to just be attracted to them when I'm shopping these days.
I've been told since I can remember that you should avoid horizontal stripes unless you are model thin - we don't want to draw the eyes wide, but rather vertical, to get a slimming effect.
But I love all of the striped things I'm seeing for Spring and Summer.
Although I'm far from model thin, I think I can still get away with it if I keep it long so that the eye is still drawn from top to bottom.
This dress from J. Crew is fabulous.
