Horizontal Tango

I learned in 7th grade Consumer Science class that horizontal stripes are bad, bad, bad.  We even watched a video of a woman in a striped sweater dancing around looking "wider than she really is."  However, since then I have worn the dreaded horizontal stripes a lot, each time remembering this video.

Skirt: Banana Republic
Booties: Jessica Simpson
Necklace & Bracelt: Gifts from The Turk from (where else?) Turkey

Looks like I packed my angry eyes, maybe 6:30 was a bit too early for this

Yesterday was a sad day for Kinsey's Closet.  I went shopping downtown, and somewhere on the walk home I dropped one of my shopping bags.  I had a few goodies in there I was excited to feature on IKC, but alas, I guess it wasn't meant to be.  There is a very lucky Seattleite running around in my new threads.

I love your Jessica Simpson booties! And how awful that you dropped your shopping bag! I've accidentally left a bag or two behind in my days and it is always so depressing :(

Oh no I that sucks that you lost your shopping bag! At least you can hope that whoever found it appreciates the items inside!

You lost your bag?? That is so sad!!!!

I know just how you feel about horizontal stripes. I had it in my head that they were the biggest fashion NO ever and was totally envious of toothpick girls who I felt could pull them off. Then I realized that there are stripes in existence that everyone can wear -- the skinny, low contrast variety are perfect!

Chic on the Cheap
