Chessa! said...

yesterday was polka dots and today stripes! you are reading my mind, CC! I'm obsessed with both! In fact, I'm on the hunt for striped tops that will look fun and fabulous on my growing bump! speaking of which, I'd love to see a maternity clothes post from you. If anyone can find me some FABULOUS and stylish clothing for the next 5 and a half months it's YOU! I know it. What do you say? xo please?? ;-)

Couture Carrie said...

Thanks for all your fab comments, darlings!

Great idea, Monica ~ I will definitely do a Haute Pregnancy post in the next few months for you!

Treacle said...

I really dig stripes, but I'm not sure about the resurgence of bike shorts (especially draped/ruched ones like that one photo). What do you think of bike shorts, C.C.?

Michael St. James said...

Love these looks and they're so easy to duplicate for less!

I do love stripes. I'm a little obsessed because I buy them but don't necessarily wear them because sometimes they just don't work on me...

Dream Sequins said...

Stripes are definitely a refreshing trend. The problem with them is that you can make them look too costume-y if you take the Gallic look too literally.

Erika said...

Oh the Twinkle by Wenlan piece is fabulous - almost psychedelic in its design. Love!! :)

J'Adore Fashion said...
