thats sexy!! the first picture is very hot!

Diego R. Wyatt said...

When I think of pinstripes I always think of boring business suits, but these looks are great. I love how the designers changed the dimensions by altering the thickness of the stripes. The no-iron Brooks Brothers shirt is a staple in my closet...great for summer too! I love the Gucci pansuit, as well as the Vivienne Westwood Anglomania pieces. The Elizabeth and James Jagger jacket is sensational!

MizzJ said...

Where do I begin, I like everything! Stripes are a perennial favourite of mine. I love that unique McQ dress, leave it to Alexander McQueen to be so original.

Tiffany said...

ooh pinstripes! i love it all.

zoe aka drinkupthefashion said...

Danz said...

Hey CC, how are you?
I love how, depending on the style of the piece, pinstripes can work for both casual wear and business wear. So chic and elegant!
Take care and have a great day tomorrow :)
