When this theme came up on the Aussie Curves list, I thought, "Oh dear! I don't have any stripes!".. and then, I remembered.. pinstripes.
I love wearing pinstripes. I have a gorgeous pinstripe corset from Gallery Serpentine, several pinstripe shirts.. a fair quantity of different things when I actually thought about it...I dug through the whole lot and put together an outfit that is stripes, head to toe:
The pants are thrifted - they're really awesome because they're made from a stretchy material and are super comfortable, but look dressy for work, such a good find!
The top and the jacket are both from City Chic - the blouse is made of a stripe-printed chiffon, and has pleating across the bodice with butterfly sleeves.. it's lovely and light, I wear it a lot when the weather warms up. Over that a pinstrip jacket which I adore, because it has lovely diagonal waist panels with piping that really nip in the waist. It's cut really well for my shape, and always jazzes up any outfit I add it to.
For my makeup, I used the gorgeous new Illamasaqua palette from their Generation Q Collection.. and I got a little bit wild with their teal lipstick - called "Apocalips" (best lipstick name ever, surely!).
I had fun getting my stripes on (can you tell?)
