Style Challenge: STRIPES

My last visit to Seattle included some fashion fun; Jean and I bought these striped tops in a little shop in Fremont.

I like the bell sleeves (impractical for doing dishes–I don’t do dishes!) but fantastic for dancing. I wore a beige, ruffled lace scarf that matched with the beige booties I got at the clothing exchange.

Jean added a black knit eternity scarf and wore black booties.

We love the asymmetrical design.

      Thank you Bob! Quite right … it’s a rarity even though Jean and I have many of the same clothes, she will never go out with me in public dressed alike. Although, she didn’t mind when she was a little girl … lol.

    I love the tops. The cut makes them drape so nicely, which makes them very figure flattering. Thanks for adding your stylish point of view to the My Refined Style Linkup!

      Thank you Shellie! Sheath dresses, tunics and long tops are slimming. What woman doesn’t like figure-flattering clothes?

      A pleasure to meet you Shellie!

      Thank you dear Dan! I have such lovely memories of dressing like my mom as a child (and like Jean when she was a little girl). Now I’m happy that Jean will do a photo shoot with me 🙂 We have some things we both love.

      ❤ carmen

    When my daughters lived with me we loved to dress alike occasionally. Even now, when I go to visit them we do it sometimes, it is really fun. I love this stripy top, looks elegant and fun at the same time.

    Besides the fact you and Jean look amazing in those tops, I must say the tops themselves are very unique. Here’s what I like….there’s not one square corner on them, diagonal design and diagonal cut makes them anything but square. Thanks for sharing this terrific look.

      Thank you so much for such a sweet compliment! That makes my day!
      As for the dishes, well, that’s a long story!

      Happy weekend!
