OOTD :: of reinterpreting stripes





Hullo, Wordless Wednesday!

Thank you for understanding that stripes don’t have to be horizontal or vertical. In fact, they can go diagonal or cross-hatched or can be combined to go both ways diagonally to create chevron. That’s why some people call it “chevron stripes”, desu ne?

(Full disclosure: this was one of the ensembles I’d created and photographed several weeks ago and then chose not to actually wear because of reasons. Thus, my hair is the length you see it. It did not magically grow over the weekend nor am I wearing extensions.)

Cardi – F21
Skinnies – Gap
Pumps – Janine @ Payless

      Mwahahahaha! I think I’m using up my share of TARDIS blue this week. Something about stripes makes me wanna style them blue.

  3. Those cobalt pants are fantastic! I just ordered some from Old Navy but the style is super weird so they are already on their way back 😦

      Did you get the Pixie pant? Or these exact ones? These are from the Gap and are velvet? I’m sorry yours had to go back but you will continue to look for another TARDIS blue pair, right?

    You mean you’re not like that Barbie with the magic growing hair? Sigh.
    But wait! TARDIS skinnies with a crazy back leg zipper detail!!!!!! xxox
    Chevrons got WAY overused by the Home Decor and Fashion bloggers a couple of years ago, but they look kind of fresh again, on you at least.

    • mtsedwards says:

      Oh, I loved that doll with the magically growing hair! If only, right?

      Yes, chevron was so overplayed for a while there. Wonder if that’s why I refrained from styling this tank until now. Subconscious denial of jumping the bandwagon, I suppose.

Tell me all about it! I'm listening...
