Stripes & Sequins


I've said on many occasions that I love stripes, especially 'nautical/Parisienne stripes', and will often wear a striped top 2-3 times a week (different ones of course, although hubby thinks they're all the same). It was surprising to note that I have never photographed any 'striped' outfits, so I made a point of photographing the next one, no matter how 'boring' it was.  I wore this to a lovely dinner for two last Friday, and was a little tickled with myself for adding stripes under my sheer blouse (yep, am easily amused, haha).

  1. I LOVE this outfit! I'm definitely saving this in my inspiration folder. The way you've put that black sheer sequined top over the striped top is excellent, dear xoxo

  8. i also LOVE stripes and adding the sequins is lovely!

    (and also re: the latest dries, i know what you mean - first look over i was like - meh- not really me, but then i looked at all the detail shots and then went back to the full shots and i was sold. still, i probably would never wear some of the blocky jackets etc)

  14. Need HELP from my friend's (cheryl) style queen =) I was just introduced to your fantastic blog (she gave me the go-signal to use her computer & to search for your site in her bookmark section =)

    Our friend is attending a BEACH wedding in Zanzibar, Africa and she asked us to suggest an outfit suited for this special occasion. I AM LOST, sadly =( and the other friend is busy...

    Please, please give us a few suggestions!! I think she's part of the entourage...

    We would appreciate it very much!!

  15. Thanks eri & the clothes horse!

    Juaи + - Wow! Psychology must be so interesting! What a 180 turn from Business ;) Thx for the reply to my Q!

    Emily - Zimbabwe! Wow, how exotic! What season will the wedding be held in? I'm guessing it'll be warm, or it wouldn't be held at the beach :)

    A few Q's:

    1) Is there a budget for the dress?
    2) Is the beach wedding followed by a swanky reception? Or is only one dress required?

    I'll try to find a few examples, but I don't know your friend's 'shape/colouring/height/taste', so the range may be quite varied :)

  18. Hehe, this part made me laugh: "different ones of course, although hubby thinks they're all the same" ... men! They're not exactly the most observant when it comes to things like a girl's clothes and hair. ;)

    Love your outfit though, stripes are always classic and beautiful!

    And thanks for your comment, I love that you quoted the Beatles! :D I just bought 18 of the Beatles original LP records on eBay (I'm going to resale them in my upcoming online shop...well if I can manage to pry myself away from them haha), and so now I have the Beatles on my brain! ;)

    xoxo,
