When Stripes Become Another Pattern

Something about this outfit makes me think about the 80s. Okay, the stirrups are a given. I think it's also the undersized vest. This burgundy sweater isn't a top I would usually wear with this vest. I'm glad I need to do laundry because I'm being forced to wear combinations I usually wouldn't wear.

See, herringbone is made from little stripes zig-zagging all over the place. My co-worker actually asked me where my stripes were and I had to point them out. Pretty sneaky, sis!

  8. I've always had a soft spot for herringbone. Ergo, your outfit is a success in my book.

  9. I totally understand what you mean by the laundry situation ... I too discovered an outfit that I would have never thought of with the same scenario! It is nice though since I tend (just out of habit) to pair things together and to mix it up a little is always refreshing and creative. =0D
